A big news is coming out about the Indian cricket team. Actually, Team India’s head coach Ravi Shastri can soon leave Team India’s side. Shastri, bowling coach Bharat Arun, fielding coach R Sridhar and batting coach Vikram Rathor may part ways from Team India after the T20 World Cup to be held in October and November this year. The major reason for this is believed to be Team India’s failure to win the ICC title. Team India could not win a single ICC title under Shastri’s coach.
Shastri has also informed the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) about this. The tenure of the entire coaching staff including Shastri is also ending in November. According to the Indian Express report, BCCI wants to appoint new coaching staff after the T20 World Cup, so that Indian cricket can be taken to new heights.
