Ravi Shastri contract ended, Committee to take call on new coach

After the loss to West Indies in the semi-finals of the ICC World T20 2016 tournament yesterday night, Ravi Shastri contract has ended. The Cricket Advisory Committee comprising of Sachin Tendulkar, Saurav Ganguly, and VVS Laxman said that contract can be renewed if Ravi Shastri is deemed fit.

“Ravi Shastri’s contract has ended. We are looking at a full-time coach and the decision will be taken by the Cricket Advisory Committee. There won’t be a Team Director and a full-time coach. It will be only one post and even Ravi’s contract can come up for renewal,” BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur told PTI today.

“The meeting of the CAC is expected to happen post-April 3. It can happen before the start of the IPL also. We will have to decide on the date,” said Thakur.

Ravi Shastri became the director of the Indian team in 2014 after India lost the test series in England 1-3. India had won the One-day international series in England, lost the test series in Australia 0-2, failed to reach finals of CB Series.

Under his coaching, India had reached the semi-finals of the ICC World Cup 2015 held in Australia and New Zealand; Virat Kohli-led team won the test series in Sri Lanka after a gap of 22 years, trashed South Africa 3-0 after losing the ODI and T20 series.
