Ravi Shastri, the current head coach of Team India, will leave his post after the T20 World Cup in the UAE. The BCCI has invited applicants for various positions for the senior men’s team.
“Applications for the position of head coach (team India- Senior Men) should be submitted by 5 PM on October 26, applications for the position of batting coach (team India- Senior Men) should be submitted by 5 PM on November 03, 2021, and applications for the position of bowling coach (Team India- Senior Men) should be submitted by 5 PM on November 03, 2021,” According to the Times of India.
Shastri wants to go slow after working for 42 years. The veteran of the game is likely to coach an IPL franchise after moving away from the national team.
“He’ll be selective. He’ll be open to working with an IPL franchise. Year-round travel is something he would like to avoid now,” a source close to him said. Shastri can also return to commentary. “He’ll be welcomed with a red carpet. Tell me a voice that is more identifiable than his.”
