The BCCI decision to advertise for head coach and assistant head coach means it could be the end of Ravi Shastri as the coach along with the trio of Sanjay Bangar, Bharat Arun and R Sridhar. The trio has been part of the management since the One-day International phase of England tour in 2014.

“The Board will advertise for the post of the Head Coach and Assistant Coaches of the Indian National Cricket Team (men),” the BCCI said in a statement on Sunday.

Ravi Shastri was roped in as a team director midway of England tour in 2014 along with Bangar, Sridhar and Bharat Arun as batting, bowling and fielding coaches.

Shastri’s tenure ended after the semifinal defeat to West Indies in the ICC World T20 held in March-April this year.

We will advertise for the post of coach today and by June 10 anyone can apply and we will make a shortlist after that,” said newly-elected BCCI president Anurag Thakur  at the BCCI headquarters.

“We are keeping it open, we want people to come. They can come forward, apply and then we can look at the proposals, who are the applicants and who are best for BCCI,” he added.

Under Ravi Shastri’s coaching, India won the T20 series against Australia, Asia Cup 2016, reached the semi-finals of ICC World Cup 2015 and also semi finals of World T20 2016. The India team defeated South Africa 3-0 in the Test series.

India lost to Bangladesh in the One-day International series and also lost the home series against South Africa in T20 and One-day Internationals.
