India has many bowlers who have served the country in the international arena with distinction. But on Sunday, the Board of Control for Cricket in India chose to overlook them and appoint former Australia left-arm paceman Bruce Reid as the bowling coach for the team now touring Down Under. India's highest Test wicket taker Kapil Dev has voiced his displeasure at the appointment.

Do you think the team needs a foreign bowling coach?
