Indian head coach Ravi Shastri will likely step down from his role after the highlight of the ICC T20 World Cup in November. If the reports published in the media are to be believed, Shastri has already passed it on to BCCI’s top buyer.
Shastri, who took over the role of Indian head coach in 2017, led the senior team to consecutive victories in the Test series in Australia. On top of that, India qualifies for the semi-finals of the 2019 World Cup and the finals of the first ICC World Cup.
So, if Shastri is stepping down from his role, then who are the likely candidates who can replace him?
Here’s a look at 5 potential candidates who could replace Ravi Shastri when he retires as head coach of the team in India
Former Australian versatile player and two-time World Cup winner Tom Moody is one of the smartest minds in the match.
Moody, who led Sri Lanka to the final of the 2007 Caribbean World Cup in the Caribbean, boasts an impressive resume that includes coaching in the IPL, BPL, CPL and PSL.
Moody was appointed ‘director of Sri Lankan cricket’ earlier this year, but given the fact that he has been applying for the coaching position of the Indian teams for a good decade and a half, one can expect the former Australian cricketer to return his hat should throw in the ring if Ravi Shastri decides to retire.
