Shastri confirms India job application

Shastri confirms India job application

"I can work under Ravi Shastri or Virender Sehwag or whoever becomes the head coach and bring in my experiences as an global cricketer and a former coach", Prasad told Cricbuzz.

Former Indian fast bowler and junior national chief selector, Venkatesh Prasad, has applied for the post of team India coach.

Here, it's pertinent to mention that during Kumble's short-lived reign, there was no bowling coach as Jumbo himself assumed that role.

CoA is also learnt not to be happy with BCCI extending the deadline of application for the head coach post without any prior intimation to them. "Whether it's (Virender) Sehwag or Ravi Shastri or whoever it is, I am very very keen to be associated as an assistant coach or a bowling coach which I have done before". However, Goenka had tweeted his opinions much before the announcement of Ravi Shastri applying for the post made it to the news.

Amidst the confusion surrounding the appointment of the head coach for Team India, one thing that is becoming clear is that the decision on the coach will not be taken only on the basis of his credentials but also on the kind of support he is able to drum up in the corridors of power.

Prasad brings with him bags full of experience, as he has not only played 33 Tests and 161 ODIs for India, but has also been a part of the Team India coaching staff during their 2007 ICC World T20 triumph.

Responding to Yonhap News Agency's query, a USA defense official also said, "We watch North Korea's actions closely". Trump has made halting the North Korean nuclear threat his number one foreign policy priority.

Lalchand Rajput, Dodda Ganesh, Richard Pybus, Tom Moody, Virender Sehwag, Ravi Shastri and Venkatesh Prasad have applied so far. If the CoA was more proactive, Kumble wouldn't have been insulted by the captain in front of three top Board officials.

The BCCI has already stated that Team India will get its new head coach before their tour to Sri Lanka beginning July 26.

Earlier on Thursday, various media reports suggested that the ex-paceman may have applied for the post, after Kumble stepped down following a reported rift with India captain Virat Kohli.

However, the 47-year-old revealed that he is yet to write to the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC), comprising of his former teammates Sourav Ganguly, Sachin Tendulkar, and VVS Laxman.

"Pl apply for Indian cricket coach".

Coming to the working experience of Shastri, joined back in 2014 as Team Director, he had a two-year long stint with the Men in Blue.
