Ravi Shastri will have to re-apply the Indian team to stay coach

The BCCI will soon send a new application to the support staff including the main coach of the Indian cricket team and thus Ravi Shastri will have to re-apply because his contract will end after next month's tour of the West Indies. The support staff included Shastri, bowling coach Bharat Arun, batting coach Sanjay Bangar and fielding coach R Sridhar. Due to the West Indies tour that started from August 3 to September 3, their tenure was extended to 45 days after the World Cup.

They can apply all over again, but the team is sure to get a new trainer and physio because Shankar Basu and Patrick Farhat have left the coaching staff with the defeat in India's World Cup semi-finals. After the West Indies tour, India's domestic series will be against South Africa from September 15.Shastri was appointed chief coach in 2017 after the term of Anil Kumble was terminated in the middle of the controversial circumstances. This 57-year-old former captain was also the director of the Indian team from August 2014 to June 2016.

Although India did not win any major ICC tournaments while keeping his coach, the team made history by winning the first Test series in Australia earlier this year.The BCCI official told PTI, "On our website, applications will be made for these posts in a day or two. In addition to the support staff, new application for the post of Team Manager will also be requested. ''Former Tamil Nadu captain Sunil Subramaniam was appointed the team manager for a one year contract in 2017 but later his term was extended.
