Ravi Shastri will lead India on their tour through Bangladesh in the not so distant future, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) said on Tuesday, as thoughts proceed more than a changeless trade for Duncan Fletcher.
The 53-year-old previous test skipper will be bolstered by aide mentors Sanjay Bangar (batting), Bharat Arun (bowling) and Ramakrishnan Sridhar (fielding) for the three one-day internationals and one test match.
Each of the three hold the parts they held under Zimbabwean Fletcher, whose term as mentor arrived at an end toward the apocalypse Cup in Australia and New Zealand prior this year.
Shastri will go to Bangladesh as “Director of the Indian cricket team”, a title he likewise held for the voyage through Australia around the New Year, which finished in a semi-last thrashing in the World Cup.
Another previous test captain, Sourav Ganguly, was among three previous India greats delegated to another BCCI counseling advisory committee on Monday alongside Sachin Tendulkar and VVS Laxman.
After the Bangladesh trip, India go to Africa to play three one-day internationals against Zimbabwe in July.
