Ravi Shastri throws name in India coach hat
 
(NEW DELHI,Jan 27, 2017):Former India allrounder and captain Ravi Shastri, who was team director of the men's team from August 2014 to April 2016, has apparently decided to submit his name for the vacant position of head coach. According to the New Indian Express, Shastri has thrown his name into contention after the BCCI, in the aftermath of Anil Kumble's resignation last week, decided to invite more applicants despite criticism by the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators.

"Yes, I have decided to apply for the job," he was quoted as saying to the newspaper.

This means that Shastri, 55, joins a list that comprises Virender Sehwag, Tom Moody, Lalchand Rajput, Dodda Ganesh and Richard Pybus. Interestingly, Shastri had been vocally critical when the BCCI's Cricket Advisory Committee comprising Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman had last year approved Kumble for the coach's role.

The BCCI in May, just days ahead of the Indian cricket team's defence of the ICC Champions Trophy title, advertised for the head coach's job but "endorsed and extension" to Kumble's one-year deal. Virat Kohli denied reports of a rift with Kumble, who proceeded to step down as head coach after a year in charge, because his "partnership" with the captain was "untenable".

In his statement of resignation, Kumble said that the BCCI had "attempted to resolve the misunderstandings" but felt it was "best to move on".

His resignation came less than two days after India were beaten by Pakistan in the Champions Trophy final.

Under Kumble, India won Test series against West Indies, New Zealand, England, Bangladesh and Australia to cement their place as the No 1 team in the ICC Test Championship, as well as limited-overs series over New Zealand and England.
