"Ravi Shastri open to working with an IPL franchise"

Bowling coach Bharat Arun too is willing to work with an IPL team

From playing cricket to doing commentary, and then serving as coach of the Indian team, Ravi Shastri has been working for almost 42 years and now wants to "slow down" in life. According to a report in Times of India, the 59-year-old will now return to the commentary box or work with one of the franchises in the Indian Premier League 2021.

"He’ll be selective. He’ll be open to working with an IPL franchise. Year-round travel is something he would like to avoid now," say those who have his ear.

Shastri, along with bowling coach Bharat Arun and fielding coach R Sridhar, will complete tenure at the end of India's T20 World Cup campaign next month. The report also suggested that Bharat Arun too is willing to work with an IPL team. Meanwhile batting coach Vikram Rathour "could possibly apply for the role of the head coach as well as batting coach."

A couple of days after convincing former India captain Rahul Dravid to take up the responsibility, the BCCI on Sunday issued advertisement for the post of head coach and three support staff as per Lodha Committee mandated constitution.

It is a foregone conclusion that Dravid, who is currently heading the NCA and has been the guiding force behind the India A and U-19 programmes, will take over unless something miraculous happens. Dravid already informally agreed during his discussion with top BCCI officials in Dubai on the sidelines of the IPL final.

However, the BCCI needs to have a Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) in place and they will have to make a formal recommendation to the BCCI apex council, if one goes by the book. The last date of application for all posts is October 26.

For the bowling coach's position, the long-standing India A and U-19 coach Paras Mhambrey, a trusted ally of Dravid, is expected to get the job.
