India’s cricket board is not looking for foreign coaches and Ravi Shastri is going to continue in his role as head coach, reports from Indian media suggested.
IANS quoted a Cricket Advisory (CAC) member as saying that Shastri will continue at the helm.
“We are not keen on bringing a foreign coach. If someone of the stature of Gary Kirsten applied, we might have given it a thought. But even then, an Indian would always have been the top priority. The team has done well under an Indian head coach, so why look for a change. As things stand now, Shastri does look to be the favourite to be handed a fresh contract,” the CAC member said.
The CAC, which consists of Kapil Dev, Anshuman Gaekwad and Shantha Rangaswamy, have been appointed to select the next coach of India.
