The Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) led by Kapil Dev, who was appointed to select the new coach, interviewed Shastri and four others in Mumbai on Friday.

Shastri appeared in a Skype interview of the West Indies, while Rajput, Hesson and Singh appeared in person in front of a panel composed of Kapil Dev, Anshuman Gaekwad and former Indian women’s captain Shantha Rangaswamy.

Speaking at Friday’s press conference, Kapil Dev said about the candidates: “Tom Moody was number 3, Hesson was number 2. Ravi Shastri is number 1”.

In addition to Shastri, the other big names that made their presentations to the three-member committee include former Australian all-terrain and Sri Lankan coach Tom Moody, former New Zealand coach and Kings XI Punjab coach Mike Hesson, the winning cricket manager of the 2007 World T20 in India.

“Number three was Tom Moody, number two was Mike Hesson. Number one is Ravi Shastri as everyone expected … (But) It was a very close race,” Kapil Dev said at the press conference to announce the decision here . .

Ravi Shastri was elected as head coach of the Indian Team for the first time in 2017 by the then CAC composed of Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman. Prior to that, Shastri served as Team Director during the 2015 World Cup.

During Shastri’s tenure, India became the number one team in the ICC Test ranking and had an exceptional performance in the 2019 World Cup, losing only two games from the nine games they played.

In addition, the first victory of the Indian test series in Australia was also under the mandate of Ravi Shastri as head coach of the team.

When the BCCI invited to run for the post of head coach after the 2019 World Cup, Virat Kohli expressed his opinion that he and the team wanted to see Ravi Shastri continue to lead.

In his pre-departure press conference before the West Indies tour, Kohli had said: “The CAC (Cricket Advisory Committee) hasn’t contacted me yet. If you want my opinion, I’ll go talk to them. With Ravi Bhai, we share a great camaraderie, and we will definitely be very happy if it continues. But they haven’t contacted me so far. ”

Ravi Shastri has been the head coach of India since July 2017, during which India won a series of tests in Australia, beat South Africa, Australia and New Zealand in ODI away from home and won the 2018 Asian Cup.

In 21 tests since July 2017, when Shastri was at the helm, India won 13 tests with a winning percentage of 52.38. In T20Is, this record is 25 wins in 36 games, with a winning percentage of 69.44. The ODI record is even better, with 43 wins in 60 games and a success rate of 71.67.

The only drawback in his record is the fact that India was eliminated in the semifinals stage both in the 2015 World Cup (when he had been Team Manager) and in the 2019 World Cup.
