Ravi Shastri was on Friday was reappointed as the Head Coach of Team India for the period from September 2019 till the end of the T20 World Cup to be played in India in 2021.
The CAC interviewed five candidates and evaluated them on the basis of the following parameters:
1) Coaching philosophy
2) Experience of coaching
3) Coaching achievements
5) Knowledge of modern coaching tools
The five candidates were provided rating points out of 100 and the CAC further shortlisted three candidates in order of priority, which is as follows:
1) Ravi Shastri
2) Mike Hesson
3) Tom Moody
An official statement was sent by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) with complete details on their official Twitter handle. Take a look.
