Ravi Shastri unlikley to get renewal, Bharat Arun, Sanjay Bangar on the way out
New Delhi: The BCCI's decision to advertise for the head coach and assistant coaches could well mean the end of the road for Ravi Shastri along with trio of Sanjay Bangar, R Sridhar and Bharat Arun — team's support staff since the limited overs phase of the 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 yesterday.
Bangar, Arun and Sridhar were with team as bowling, batting and fielding coach respectively ever since Shastri was roped in as team director midway through the England tour.
Shastri's tenure had ended with the World T20 in March-April. It is possible that whoever comes in as the head coach will handpick his own set of support staff.
Bangar has had a tough time being the head coach at Kings XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League. The team finished last in two consecutive seasons including this edition.
