The current Indian head coach, Ravi Shastri, and the other coaches involved with the Indian team are likely to divorce Virat Kohli’s team after the T20 World Cup is over. This is not a surprise as Ravi Shastri is already 59 and his term of office will come to an end when he is 60. His contract expires in November after the T20 World Cup and he will probably not apply for the post again.
India did very well during the coaching period of Ravi Shastri with reaching the final round of the World Test Championship and also the semi-finals of the World Cup 2019. The bowling coach Bharat Arun, field coach R Sridhar and batting coach Vikram Rathour will leave the Indian team with Ravi Shastri. The coaches have indeed shown interest in the IPL teams and they can leave together.
Rahul Dravid may be in line with head coach rule
Rahul Dravid, who took the young Indian team to Sri Lanka for the series with limited matches, could very well be in line for the next role of the Indian head coach. His post as the NCA’s head coach expires in September and BCCI has invited applications for the post, meaning Rahul Dravid could become the next Indian head coach. He shares his views on the challenges and experience with the Indian tour to Sri Lanka after the series.
“I enjoyed the experience of working with these guys, it was amazing. I thought of nothing else. There isThere are a lot of challenges to play full-time roles, so I really do not know. ” Rahul Dravid tells after the Sri Lanka series.
Ravi Shastri’s important contribution to the Indian team
Ravi Shastri only comes on the scene after the gloomy series against England in 2014 as the director of the Indian team and works until the 2016 T20 Worldcup. Anil Kumble took over as head coach for a year and Ravi Shastri returned a year later as head coach of the Indian team. He and Kohli formed India as a dominant force in the cricket world and brought the team to great heights.
His success would not be seen in trophies, but Shastri has paved the way for a strong Indian team for the next five years or so.
