Ravi Shastri to apply for India's head coach post

In the race with Shastri are the likes of as well as the other applicants like Virender Sehwag, Tom Moody and others.

The latest name to be associated with the team management Kumble's former India and Karnataka teammate, Venkatesh Prasad, who has served as the Indian bowling coach before.

Meanwhile, Prasad played the role of bowling coach with Team India just ahead of the 2007 World Cup.

Here, it's pertinent to mention that during Kumble's short-lived reign, there was no bowling coach as Jumbo himself assumed that role.


The BCCI had extended the deadline to apply for the post of head coach till July 9.

Probably, this is where Kumble lacked as in his parting message on Twitter, he revealed: "The captain had reservations about my style and my continuing as the Head Coach". However, things have changed now and the BCCI might face a tough time choosing Anil Kumble's successor as a number of high-profile individuals have applied for the top job. Prasad, who is now working as the junior India chief selector, had also applied for the post in 2016. For one, they alleged, "Anil Kumble treated players like school kids."The coach reportedly gave the players a "dressing-down" after the team lost the ICC Champions Trophy final to Pakistan at The Oval on June 18". If the reports are to be believed and the 47-year-old has indeed applied for the job then he'll be contesting against former Indian cricketers Ravi Shastri and Virender Sehwag.

As it appears that Ravi Shastri might be selected monotonously, and at this moment, one must be aware of the flaws and positive impact that can be found under the coaching of Ravi Shastri. The cricket world is aware of the good relationship that Ravi Shastri has with Virat Kohli. He has also had experience of coaching junior teams, which would work in his favour. In a statement, which seems to back the former's approach, the support staff says that it is important for a leader to "yield to the demands of the group".
