Ravi Shastri to continue as Team India’s Head Coach

Ravi Shastri has been reappointed as the head coach of the senior men’s Indian team. He remains an Indian team coach for two years.

“Being a current coach, knowing the boys well, knowing the problems well, what has to be done. He was well versed with the system. Somebody knows the system and somebody who knows the players well has an advantage,” said Anshuman Gaekwad, one of the members of the CAC.

“Number three was Tom Moody, number two was Mike Hesson. Number one is Ravi Shastri as all of you were expecting… (But) It was a very close race,” said Kapil at the press conference to announce the decision.

Shastri’s reappointment was widely expected given his working relationship with India captain Virat Kohli. The latter even publicly voiced his support for Shastri at the pre-departure press conference ahead of the tour of West Indies.

Ravi Shastri has played 80 Test matches and scored 3830 runs. Shastri scored 11 centuries in red-ball cricket. He also picked up 151 Test wickets during his playing days.
