Former Indian all rounder Ravi Shastri will be applying for
the job of Indian Cricket Team. The team is vacant right now after their former
leg spinner Anil Kumble last week resigned from the post of head coach after
recently concluded Champions Trophy where India finished second losing against
their arch rival Pakistan.
Shastri had already worked as director of team India from
August 2014 to him till 2016. Under his tenure as Director India made into the
semifinals of 2015 World Cup and 2016 T20 World Cup.
Shastri had also applied for the post of 2016 too but was
not selected. After his rejection Anil Kumble was appointed as the coach of
Indian cricket team.
It is also believed that as Shastri has good relation with Indian
captain Virat Kohli, it is likely to appoint Shastri as the coach. At the end
of Kumble’s tenure both Kumble and Virat had cold relation which might open
door to Shastri.
