Mumbai (Thestates.news) |The Board of Control for Cricket in India (#BCCI) has firmly denied making any coaching offers to former Australian cricketers Ricky Ponting or Justin Langer. BCCI Secretary Jay Shah clarified the situation following reports quoting the Australians. “Neither I nor the BCCI have approached any former Australian cricketer with a coaching offer,” Shah stated.
