Mumbai, July 12: Ravi Shastri, the head coach of Team India, is due to retire in November this year. Will Shastri remain the coach of Team India even after this? No official statement has been made yet. Rahul Dravid has been selected as the coach of Team India for the tour of Sri Lanka. Since then, there have been rumors that Dravid will be the next coach of Team India. Former India all-rounder Ritender Singh Sodhi has reacted to the issue of coaching.
“If India wins the T20 World Cup in November, it will be impossible to remove Ravi Shastri from the post,” Sodhi said. The UAE will host the T20 World Cup in October-November. “If the ICC Trophy drought ends in November, Shastri’s position will not be touched,” he said. After India won the Champions Trophy in 2013, Team India has not won a single ICC tournament.
Speaking to India News, Sodhi said, “It is not appropriate to see how successful the coach is after winning the ICC Trophy. It is difficult to say that Ravi did not do well. He has done a great job as a coach. If India wins the T20 World Cup, it is impossible to remove him from the coaching post.
When Ravi Shastri was the coach, India lost in the 2019 World Cup semi-finals and the World Test Championship final. When India beat Australia twice in their home Test series, Shastri was the coach of Team India.
