Ravi Shastri Appointed India’s Head Coach: The long awaited result has been declared by BCCI by putting an end to the unfilled India’s head Coach position after the West Indies series. Ravi Shastri, who once worked as a head coach for Indian Cricket team has been appointed once again by the advisory committee which comprises of Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman.
Earlier, Choudhary said the members of the CAC were in discussion about the appointment of the next coach and that an announcement was imminent. He remained tightlipped about the exact time of the announcement, but added that he expects it to be done today. The result came very late on Tuesday and finally the India’s Head Coach is appointed along with few changes in the coaching team.
Ravi Shastri Appointed India’s Head Coach Along with Zaheer and Dravid in Coaching Team:
Ravi Shastri, the former India allrounder and team director, has been appointed head coach of the national side until the 2019 World Cup. Zaheer Khan has been named bowling consultant for the same tenure, while Rahul Dravid will be India’s batting consultant for overseas Test series. The pick is not that easy but the CAC has made it easier for BCCI to make the decision and give to a person who is responsible enough to handle the team.
Amitabh Choudary, Acting secretary of BCCI said that, The three (CAC members) are talking to each other as we speak, I can understand it’s not an easy job. It’s a very very difficult job and I give full marks to them. What the CAC will do, or abstain from doing, is completely their freedom. When the BCCI gets into the loop, we’ll let you know.
The vacancy arose because Anil Kumble resigned after the Champions Trophy in June, stating that his partnership with India captain Virat Kohli had become “untenable”. India went to the West Indies to play a limited-overs series without a head coach. Ravi Shastri was one of five candidates the CAC interviewed for the role, along with Virender Sehwag, Tom Moody, Richard Pybus and Lalchand Rajput. He had not applied when the BCCI invited applications for the first time, but did so after Kumble was no longer in the fray.
