Ravi Shastri To Continue As Team India’s Head Coach, Confirms COA Chief

Ravi Shastri will keep his job as the head coach of the Indian cricket team even if the members of the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) are found to be under the conflict of interest issue. COA chief Vinod Rai confirmed the update to Sportstar, quashing the report which suggested that Shastri will have to be re-appointed as the head coach.

Shastri’s contract as head coach was extended for another two years by the CAC headed by Kapil Dev last month.

Along with Shastri, BCCI would have conducted the process to re-appoint WV Raman, head coach of India women’s team, but no process will be followed now. The duo will continue to keep their positions.

It is to be noted that BCCI’s ethics office DK Jain had sent conflict of interested notice to CAC members Kapil Dev, Anshuman Gaekwad and Shantha Ramaswamy yesterday. They have to respond by October 10.

Rangaswamy, former India captain, resigned from the committee earlier today. The rest of the two members are expected to submit their response soon.

As per the rule of BCCI, no official can hold more than one position. Sanjeev Gupta, MPCA’s life member, had complained against the trio. He alleged that all the three legends of the game hold multiple roles.

It is unlikely that the other two members of the CAC will continue now and BCCI will have to appoint a new CAC when the board will look for a new coach for men’s and women’s team.

The current CAC had come into existence after Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman left their positions. They were also served with conflict of interest notice by BCCI’s ethics officer.
