The former team director of Indian Tea Ravi Shastri has recently folded up an application for the new head coach for team India as we all know Kumble has stepped down from the post
And yet another new era of a promising Head Coach is going to be in a on go process and again it is Ravi Shastri who has put in application for the post
This is what he said when he was being asked regarding has he applied for the post or not,
"Yes, I have decided to apply for the job," he told the daily, after the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) invited further applications for the role of head coach post Anil Kumble's decision to step down after differences with skipper Virat Kohli.
As the facts and news has revealed Kumble was preferred ahead of Shastri and they had a great tour with him but due to some differences with Kohli he has stepped down from the post of Head Coach
Kumble opted not to renew his contract following rumours of a rift between him and Kohli, despite the captain denying the truth in them. However, Kumble in a statement, confirmed that he was in the loop of the "reservations" that Kohli had with him continuing as the coach.
Factoring all the recent developments, Shastri seems like the ideal candidate for the post, given that he had shared a affable working relationship with Kohli and his side. So much so that there were reports earlier of Kohli recommending Shastri for the post to the Cricket Advisory Committee.
As of now,the BCCI has officially received five applications, including those of Virender Sehwag and Tom Moody.
