Indian head coach Ravi Shastri is all set to get an extension after the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) invited applications for the role. Anshuman Gaekwad, a member of the Cricket Advisory Committee hinted the news.

“Speaking purely from the results perspective, he has done quite well. So, besides Ravi, all other positions, in my opinion, are open depending on who is applying, their credentials and whether they meet the criteria of the BCCI,” Anshuman said.

Former New Zealand coach Mike Hesson also applied for the position of the head coach with former Sunrisers Hyderabad coach Tom Moody. Former South Africa batsman Jonty Rhodes applied for India’s fielding coach.

“In the last 18 to 20 months, the work put in by Arun has been phenomenal. The current Indian attack is considered to be the best in the longest format. Mohammed Shami back at his best and (Jasprit) Bumrah's consistency is a few things Arun must get credit for. It's up to the selectors but they might find it difficult to replace him,” Anshuman added.
