Wish Team India good luck under coach Ravi Shastri: Mohammad Kaif

first_imgFormer captain Ravi Shastri has been appointed the new head coach of the Indian men’s cricket team till the 2019 World Cup, as first reported on India Today. Shastri’s first assignment will be a full-fledged tour of Sri Lanka featuring three Tests, five ODIs and a one-off T20 International starting July 26.Meanwhile, Zaheer Khan has been named bowling coach while Rahul Dravid will be batting coach for overseas tours.The BCCI’s Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) comprising Sourav Ganguly, Sachin Tendulkar and VVS Laxman interviewed five candidates on Monday – Virender Sehwag, Tom Moody, Richard Pybus, Lalchand Rajput and Shastri – before finalising on the latter.Sourav Ganguly had said on Monday that the announcement would be made after they have spoken to Virat Kohli upon his return from America.Ganguly had said that they would intimate Kohli about the way the interviewed coaches want to function.”Virat will need to understand how coaches operate. At the same time, you have to give credit to Kohli that he has stayed out of the coach selection process. We will have a detailed chat with him once he is back from America,” said Ganguly.But in a dramatic twist since then, the CoA, on Tuesday afternoon, asked the BCCI to close the coach selection process today.Thereafter, Ganguly said to India Today that they will speak to Kohli on phone and announce the decision.The decision was no surprise as Shastri had the strong backing from captain Kohli due to his comfortable days as the Team India director and here’s how Twitter reacted over the news.advertisementHaving @ImZaheer as bowling coach is a fantastic move.Wish Team India good luck under Ravi Shastri .Hopefully d focus will be on cricket now- Mohammad Kaif (@MohammadKaif) July 11, 2017Congratulations @ImZaheer @RaviShastriOfc & #RahulDravid.
