With the contracts of India’s current coaching staff set to come to an end soon, the BCCI has invited fresh applications for the various positions.
The contracts of the coaching staff were originally due to end with the completion of the 2019 ICC World Cup but the BCCI granted a 45-day extension of Ravi Shastri (head coach), Sanjay Bangar (batting coach), R Sridhar (fielding coach) and Bharat Arun (bowling coach).
The four coaches were granted the minor extensions for India’s upcoming tour of the West Indies which runs from August 3 to September 4.
India’s physiotherapist Patrick Farhart and strength and conditioning coach Shankar Basu had earlier ended their association with the team after the World Cup by opting not to renew their respective contracts.
The BCCI has invited applications for the six coaching positions along with that of the administrative manager with the final deadline for candidates being July 30.
It remains to be seen whether the likes of Shastri choose to re-apply for the respective roles although the BCCI has stated that the current incumbents will gain an automatic entry in the recruitment process.
The BCCI’s five-man selection committee is set to meet on Friday to announce India’s squad the upcoming tour of the West Indies. India are set to play two Tests, three ODIs and as many T20Is against the Caribbean side in their month-long tour.
