head coach of indian cricket team(Ravi Shastri)’s tenure will end after the T20 World Cup. Recently, it was reported that Shastri no longer wants to be the coach of the Indian team. But now he has said something like this in an interview, after which the situation seems to be clear to a great extent that he does not want to extend his tenure. He has said that he has got what he wanted.
got what was wanted
Ravi Shastri was given the responsibility of the head coach of Team India after the 2017 Champions Trophy. When his tenure ended in 2019, he once again became the coach of the Indian team. But now he does not want to take this responsibility any further. Even though he has not said this in clear words, but it seems so from his latest statement. Speaking to The Telegraph, Shastri said,
“I believe that whatever I wanted has been achieved. Staying as number one (in Test rankings) for five years, going to Australia to win twice and also beat England at home. This time I spoke to Michael Aarthton and told him that nothing could be more for me than this, defeated Australia in Australia in the time of Corona and also beat the England team at his home. We took a 2-1 lead and the way we played at Lord’s and the Oval was fantastic.”
Ravi Shastri expressed his desire to win T20 WC
There is no doubt that during the tenure of Ravi ShastriHas done exceptionally well with consistency and has achieved many big achievements. But Shastri has not been able to win the ICC trophy for the team so far. That’s why he has said that if India manages to register a win in the upcoming T20 World Cup, it will be gold. They said,
“We have beaten almost all the team in limited over format by going to his house. If Joe manages to win the T20 World Cup, it will be icing on the cake. Now nothing can be more than this. I would definitely like to say one thing that whatever I wanted from this team, it has achieved more than it has given. Going out to beat Australia and lead the series against England in the time of Kovid, this is the most satisfying moment for me in four decades of cricket.
Who will be the next coach of Team India?
Who will be the team head coach after the head coach of Ravi Shastri? This question has been echoing in the cricket corridors for a long time. Rahul Dravid’s reapplication for the post of NCA chief has made it clear that he does not want to be the head coach. If recent reports are to be believed, the BCCI has approached Anil Kumble, VVS Laxman and Mahela Jayawardene to apply for the coach’s post. If any one of them takes the responsibility of coaching Team India, then surely it will be good for India.
