Ravi Shastri was named as the next head coach of the Indian cricket team.

BCCI secretary Amitabh Chaudhary insisted that there was no decision yet, but was expected by the end of the day, Shastri, who has been in charge of the team twice before, was appointed for the next three years, till the 2019 World Cup.

“Besides Shastri as the chief coach, Zaheer Khan would be joining the team as its new bowling consultant. Rahul Dravid, who has been given charge of the India A and India Under-19 sides, would assist the team as batting consultant but only during overseas Test tours,” Choudhary confirmed to The Hindu.

However, it was not clear whether the decision was finalised after consultation with the captain Virat Kohli as the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) consisting of Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman had wished for a day earlier and confirmed by Ganguly – or gone ahead without it. Shastri had been a frontrunner for the post ever since he officially applied for the job. Considered close to Kohli and enjoying a good relationship with the captain in his previous stint, the former India batsman was among the six candidates interviewed for the job
