Ravi Shastri Retained As Team India's Head Coach 

New Delhi: The Board of Control for Cricket in India's (BCCI) Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) has named Ravi Shastri as the Head Coach of the Indian men's cricket team. The committee comprises of Kapil Dev, Anshuman Gaekwad and Shantha Rangaswamy in Mumbai on Friday. The announcement was made by Kapil Dev at a press conference on Friday evening. Apart from Shastri, Mike Hesson, Robin Singh, Tom Moody, Lalchand Rajput applied for the post. Ravi Shastri's last tenure ended after World Cup 2019 but he was given an extension for India's tour of the West Indies.

In 2017, Ravi Shastri was picked as the head coach of Team India, by then CAC comprising of Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman. Prior to that, Shastri served as Team Director during World Cup 2015.

Under the coaching of Ravi Shastri, India had went on to become the number one ranked team in the ICC Test rankings and performed exceptionally well in the 2019 World Cup, losing just two games out of the nine matches they played.

Also, India's first Test series win in Australia too came under Ravi Shastri's term as head coach of the team.

When the BCCI invited applications for the post of head coach after World Cup 2019, Virat Kohli expressed his opinion that he and the team would like to see Ravi Shastri continue at the helm.

In his pre-departure press conference before the West Indies tour, Kohli had said: "The CAC (Cricket Advisory Committee) hasn't contacted me yet. If they want my opinion, I'll go and speak to them. With Ravi bhai, we share a great camaraderie, and will definitely be very happy if he continues. But I haven't been contacted so far."
