Ravi Shastri’s stint as the Director of team India is likely to come to an end as the former all-rounder is expected to pad up for a new innings soon.
As per the reports in TOI, the 52-year old has expressed interest in contributing to Mumbai Cricket and is likely to be appointed as an advisor/consultant to the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA).
During an interview, MCA joint secretary PV Shetty quoted:
“He (Shastri) approached me and expressed his interest in contributing to Mumbai cricket during the recent IPL Governing Council meeting in Delhi. I welcomed his suggestion. We are looking for a big role for him. His role will be decided in the Managing Committee meeting of the Mumbai Cricket Association.”
Ravi Shastri was appointed as team India’s director after the side’s poor show against England last year. His appointment started to do wonders as the team that lost to England in Tests (3-1), returned the favour back in ODIs (3-1) and white-washed Sri Lanka (5-0) at home. The team also did a wonderful job in the ICC World Cup 2015 by winning seven consecutive matches before losing to Australia in the semis at SCG.
