There’s a reason that ODI coaches are often recruited through various recruitment services, and that is because they have an impressive resume.
It also helps to have an outstanding CV.
And if you’re not the only one looking at your CV, you can make an excellent hire.
As the number of ODI-playing coaches grows, the list of candidates who are also qualified to coach at the highest level continues to grow.
The best-known candidates to join the ODI coaching ranks include the likes of Sourav Ganguly, Dinesh Karthik, Rahul Dravid, Anil Kumble, Virender Sehwag, and Dinesham Sharma.
But even a player who doesn’t have a lot of experience in the game may be able to make a contribution.
We asked the leading coaching agencies for their experience of recruiting ODI and domestic-only coaches to the domestic game and how to select the best candidate for the role.
The ODI Coach selection process1.
What is an OIDC?
An OIDCA is a program established by the BCCI to promote and encourage ODI cricket in India.
An OID CA has been created through an amendment of the Indian cricket code, which came into effect in July 2017.
Under the OID Code, ODI players have the right to be called up as a first-class citizen, to play in the Indian team, and to be paid by the Indian board for the performance of their services.
The OID code also allows for the formation of an OCA, which is essentially a domestic-based ODI academy.
A team, called the ODA, is formed with a minimum of seven players.2.
How many coaches do I need to have?
An average of four coaches per club, including the coach who has been selected, are required to train a team of OIDCs.
In order to achieve a competitive standard, the OIC has to have at least six coaches per ODI.
The ICC has set a target of 10,000 ODI cricketers by 2022, with an aim to achieve that target within the next two years.
In 2018-19, there were 11,917 ODI batsmen, of whom 15,934 batsmen were OID crickerers.
The remaining 14,857 batsmen played for the OIII, the top domestic league.3.
What’s the difference between an OIC and a CA?
An accredited OIC is a club or league that is accredited by the ICC.
It is comprised of three members: the ICC, the BCCF and the OBC, who all have an independent role.
An accredited CA is an association formed by the club and/or league in which a member or club has a responsibility to the development of the OPI.
The CA is recognised by the OIIC, the ICC and the BCCIC.
An OIAC is also a club and league with the objective of developing OPI and ODI team members, and is a member of the ICC or the BCCA.
It’s also recognised by both the ICC/CBI and BCCI/BACA.4.
Who’s on the OIE committee?
An Indian OIE has been established by each of the four ICC members in the past, with the ICC deciding the candidates to be considered.
The criteria for selection include the experience of the candidate, the level of development of his or her coaching experience and the quality of the coaching.
The ICC has also made it clear that the OICE committee will look at the OIDA and OIC candidates as well as the ICC’s own internal OPI selection process.5.
What does the OIG stand for?
The OIG stands for the Organising Committee for ODI Cricket in India, which was established in 2016 to develop the OBI, the criteria and guidelines for OPI candidates.
It has been the official body for the selection process for OID coaches.6.
Who decides when the OIF (ODI) coaching team is formed?
An official announcement is made by the CABF/OIIC and the ICC on the day of the scheduled ODIs in order to allow for the process to begin.
The BCCI is also responsible for selecting the OIS coach, and he/she is responsible for the recruitment process.7.
How does the selection of a candidate differ from the process of appointing a coach?
The selection of the coach is a different process, where the candidate must submit a letter of intent from the player’s club.
The player’s association, the Board of Control for Cricket in Asia, and the player himself are involved in the process.
A letter of intention is considered to be the first step in the recruitment of the candidates.
This is a decision that will take place within the organisation, where both the player and the CCA will have a role in the selection.8.
