Ravi Shastri's continuation as India coach recommended by CAC

Ravi Shastri's continuation as India coach recommended by CAC

The three-member CAC also comprised former India coach Anshuman Gaekwad and ex women's captain Shantha Rangaswamy.

All the three members of the panel are former India cricketers. Shastri's tenure will come to an end after the World T20 in 2021. No surprise that Ravi Shastri continues as coach of the Indian team. Sanjay Bangar, the assistant and batting coach, is on a sticky wicket because of a range of issues but Bharat Arun and R Sridhar, the current bowling and fielding coaches, should have no problem in getting extension up to next year's World Twenty20. While Rajput, Hesson and Robin Singh were present in Mumbai for the interview, Moody and Shastri made their presentations remotely through video conferencing. India went on to become the number one ranked team in the ICC Test rankings. With Phil Simmons pulling out of the race at the last moment, they had to pick between only five candidates. There were five parameters on which the candidates were judged - Coaching philosophy, experience of coaching, achievements in coaching, communication and knowledge of modern coaching tools. Former West Indies and Afghanistan coach Phil Simmons pulled out of the race, citing personal reasons. Robin Singh and Lalchand Rajput were the two others who made their presentation before the CAC. "I am not going to get into the details as to how much was the difference but it was a very small number (margin)", said Kapil. "We were given a marksheet and we filled it up without discussing with each other", he said.

Moody is a perennial aspirant of India position having first applied for the job in 2005 but he does not have great reputation as a coach in India and IPL circle, despite his extended and fairly successful association with Sunrisers Hyderabad.

"Certainly not (sought Kohli's opinion)".

Shastri was appointed the coach of the team in mid-2017 after Anil Kumble stepped down from his position.

He also stated that their terms of reference, while conducting the interviews, was not based on their previous performance but on the "presentations" given and what the coaches felt about the way forward for Indian cricket. But the Men in Blue's rampant charge and complete domination of the Windies in the Caribbean islands on the ongoing tour, in both T20s and ODIs so far, indicates that the team has bounced back to winning ways and the trademark positive approach very quickly, after a heartbreaking World Cup exit earlier.
