“Why This Farce”: BCCI Savagely Trolled After Ravi Shastri’s Reappointment As India Coach

Why This Farce: BCCI Savagely Trolled After Ravi Shastri

Here are some of the tweets…

Shastri was re-appointed for a two-year period by the CAC, a decision that was expected. His term will again be up for review after the 2021 T20 World Cup in India.

Shastri pipped former India teammates Robin Singh and Lalchand Rajput along with former New Zealand coach Mike Hesson and Australian Tom Moody to the post. Former West Indies and Afghanistan coach Phil Simmons pulled out of the race, citing personal reasons.

Kapil Dev, head of CAC, denied claims that Indian skipper Virat Kohli had any say in the reappointment of Ravi Shastri. Announcing their decision, Kapil Dev said, “If we take his (Kohli’s) views we would have taken the entire team’s views too. We haven’t asked anyone. There was no scope for that”. 

Kapil Dev accepted that all the candidates worked really hard and put in lot of work in their presentation. He also explained what according to him was Shatri’s biggest plus-point and worked in his favour.

“All of them were excellent. Sometime I felt Shastri had more skills of communication, they may have felt differently but we didn’t discuss about that, we have given the marks after listening to their presentations,” Kapil Dev explained.

Shastri in his next tenure will have three major ICC tournaments including two T20 World Cups in next two years and also a newly-minted World Test Championship which will culminate in 2021.

India will kick-start their World Test Championship campaign against the West Indies on August 22.
