The BCCI treatment for Whatmore

I am not all that sure whether Dav Whatmore is unhappy about being left out in the race for the post of India's coach. Considering the way the BCCI has treated him he should only be too glad not to be associated with such an organization.

Whatmore left his post as the Bangladesh coach, turned down an offer from Pakistan and took great pains to communicate his readiness to be the next Indian coach. Now, it is fine that the expert committee setup for choosing the coach turned their back on him because they have the power and authority to do so based on their reasons whatever they may be. But after choosing to ignore Whatmore for the job, the board should atleast have had the courtesy to inform him about the decision after all that the man had done to nail the job.

But apparently Whatmore had to read about the decision in the papers just like everyone else! Just how haughty could the Indian board get!
