After a long period of suspense and wait, BCCI announced the new Indian Cricket Team Head coach as former Indian cricketer Ravi Shastri. Before announcing, there had been a number of discussions in the Cricket Advisory Committee CAC members like Ganguly, Sachin, and Laxman.
Finally, Ravi Shastri was given the post as the head coach. In the race who applied for the position, Virender Sehwag is also one of the persons. There had been a tough fight between Ravi Shastri and Sehwag to become the Indian head coach.
However, Sehwag missed out on coveted India head coach job. Everyone who doesn’t get what they want, they might feel sad. But Sehwag looks chilled after BCCI naming Ravi Shastri as the coach. For everyone’s surprise, a day after missing out on the coveted India job, Sehwag shared photos of himself chilling it out in Canada.
Losing out on a dream job would have demanded more than self-assurance, but Sehwag, typical of his batting, flipped the situation by gifting himself a holiday.
Here’s what Sehwag had shared on social media sites:
Sehwag is looking chilled and enjoying the moments, isn’t it?
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) confirmed former Team Director Shastri as Kumble’s replacement late on Tuesday evening, with Rahul Dravid and Zaheer Khan joining the support staff as batting consultant for overseas tours and bowling coach respectively.
After a heated conversation between Ravi Shastri and Sourav Ganguly about the bowling coach, it’s altogether another matter that the BCCI on Thursday released a statement, saying Zaheer’s appointment was limited to a consultant’s role.
Earlier, reports of new India head coach Shastri pushing for Bharat Arun’s return as the full-time bowling coach was doing the rounds.
