After Team India’s disappointing exit from the ICC World Cup 2019 in the Semi-finals, Head coach Ravi Shastri finds his position at risk. The team showcased splendid performance in the mega tournament where they finished first in the group stage matches with just one defeat to their account. However, their fabulous form failed to reflect in their semis performance against New Zealand as they suffered a devastating 18-run defeat.
Currently the teams Head coach Ravi Shastri and the support staff are on their 45-day extension period due to the upcoming West Indies tour. Post World Cup, BCCI invited applications for the post of Head Coach and support staff, although it was also specified that the current couching staff need not re-apply for the posts as it would be done automatically.
On Sunday, former Indian cricketer Robin Singh who is also an applicant for the post of Head Coach took a dig at Ravi Shastri suggesting a change will be ideal as the team under the current coach lost two ODI World Cups.
Robin Singh told The Hindu, “Under the current coach, India has lost in the semi-finals of two successive ODI World Cups and in the last four stage of the World Twenty20 Championship as well. Now is the time to prepare for 2023 World Cup and a change could be good for the side.”
