New Delhi: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has invited fresh applications for the post of Team India head coach and its support staff which includes batting, bowling, fielding, physio, strength and conditioning coach and administrative manager for the Indian team.
Current head coach Ravi Shastri and his team will get an automatic entry into the recruitment process. While all above-mentioned coaches are set to get an automatic entry in the recruitment process but the team is all set to have a new trainer and physio as Shankar Basu and Patrick Farhart left immediately after India’s semi-final exit in the World Cup.
Shastri was appointed India chief coach in 2017 after Anil Kumble’s tenure ended prematurely in controversial circumstances. While the team did well under Shastri’s campaign to reach the semis of the showpiece event, selection of several players raised questions marks and reportedly, the board is also contemplating split captaincy for different formats between Kohli and Rohit Sharma.
India is scheduled to play three T20 Internationals and as many One-day Internationals before two Test matches on a month-long tour to the West Indies. For this, the BCCI has done away with a direct appointment and following a proper recruitment process.
“The interested candidates have to send in their applications on or before July 30, 2019, by 5 pm at email@example.com. Pertinent to note, that the decision of the board for the said position, will remain final and binding,” the BCCI said.
