Ravi Shastri is the most powerful candidate!

Ravi Shastri was skeptical of whether or not he was the coach of the Indian cricket team. Shastri did not apply when the Indian Cricket Board (BCB) got the advertisement for the application as Anil Kumble’s successor. Before the Champions Trophy, Indian captain Virat Kohli requested Kumble to coach Shastri, but Shastri did not have any application from the Board of Advisory Committee of the BCCI or Board of Control for Cricket in India. Rather, the former coaching director of India had persistently asked the board to call him if he thought he needed a coach. But Shastri was always a strong candidate for India’s coach. During his 18-month career as a coaching director, his success and his relationship with Kohlid kept him cooperative. The problem was one, he did not appeal to the BCCI.
That’s the problem. Shastri himself has decided to apply for the post of coach. The deadline for applying for the post of coach will be up till May 31, but recently it was extended to 9 July, hoping for a better candidate. Many people say that Shastri should apply, so that the time limit has been extended only. The decision to apply to India’s former all-rounder is to get the credibility to be honest.
However, this Shastri was dismissed as coach and Kumble was appointed instead of Shastr. Shastri took the Indian team in very difficult situations in 2014. It was time when India lost 7 Tests in England and Australia. The storm of criticism is about Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s team. Shastri went ahead with a tie in front of the whole team. The team has given the lessons of ‘fearless’ cricket. After the T-20 World Cup in 2016, the Indian cricketers wanted to re-engage him. He also did the application. But he could not become ‘number one’ in the selection process of Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman’s advisory committee. Kumble was appointed as a coach instead of Shastri. Shastri, who was virtually angry at not receiving the guardianship of the newcomers, has been published several times. One of the Advisory Committee members, Sourav Ganguly, had gone with him.
Because of the fact that Kumble has to leave, there is a lot of possibility of being the coach of Shastri. The relation between Kumble and Kohli, which is exactly opposite of Shastri. Most of the Indian cricket team want Shastri to take the team forward. In that case, the board would like to avoid the risk of hiring a new coach. As long as the coaching director, the 18-month success is very long.
