45-day extension for Shastri and co:

The coaching staff comprising Shastri, bowling coach Bharat Arun, batting coach Sanjay Bangar and fielding coach R Sridhar were given a 45-day extension following the World Cup, covering the West Indies tour from August 3 to September 3.

World Cup exit cut short Shastri and co's Extension:

A BCCI official told Republic TV that if India had won the World Cup, the scenario might have been different, indicating that Ravi Shastri was all set to get an out-of-turn 2-year-extension as the chief coach if the Men In Blue returned home victorious from the World Cup.

Shastri was appointed India chief coach in 2017 after Anil Kumble's tenure ended prematurely in controversial circumstances. The 57-year-old was also India's director of cricket from August 2014 to June 2016. However, India has not won a major ICC event under his guidance although the team did make history by winning a maiden Test series in Australia earlier this year.

Former Tamil Nadu captain Sunil Subramanian was appointed team manager in 2017 on a year-contract but he got an extension. It was the first time that the BCCI had followed a transparent procedure for hiring the team manager, in accordance with the Lodha committee recommendations.

What is the recruitment process?

For all positions, the BCCI has done away with a direct appointment and follows a proper recruitment process. The BCCI's CoA (Committee of Administrators) is scheduled to hold a meeting with coach Ravi Shastri and skipper Virat Kohli to discuss the Team India's performance and the team combination, keeping in mind that the preparations and grooming of players for the 2023 World Cup needs to begin at the earliest, as per sources.
