Sources have made a statement that in less than a month after Anil Kumble stepped down as the Indian cricket team coach, former Team Director Ravi Shastri has been officially appointed the new head coach. Meanwhile the BCCI's Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC), comprising former players Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman, interviewed five candidates former Indian cricketers like Ravi Shastri, Virender Sehwag and Lalchand Rajput, Australian cricketer Tom Moody and Englishman Richard Pybus before finalizing Shastri to fill the vacant position of Team India's head coach.
Sources have stated that the decision has been taken only after consulting with skipper Virat Kohli, who allegedly caused former coach Kumble to step down. Currently Shastri has reportedly signed a two year contract, and thus he will remain the coach when India plays the 2019 ICC World Cup.
It was stated that the appointment of Shastri as Team India's coach has
not gone well with most of the Indian cricket fans who argue that he will just
act as a 'Yes Man' to skipper Kohli. As the news is confirmed officially it is
not known whether Ravi Shastri will be accepted as the new coach of Indian
Spinner Kuldeep Yadav with maiden hat-trick as India beat Australia by 50 runs in the second one day international in Kolkata According to sources Left arm spinner Kuldeep Yadav became only the third Indian to take a hat-trick as the hosts demolished Australia by 50 runs in the second ODI on Thursday, continuing their dominating run over the listless visitors. By chasing 253 on a tricky surface, Australia once again had no answer to the guile of wrist spinners Yuzvendra Chahal (2/34) and chinaman Yadav (3/54), who struck at crucial junctures to bundle out the opposition for 202 in 43.1 overs.
