The focus is currently on Team India’s next coaching staff. Ravi Shastri & Co. will be out of contract by the time India’s tour of West Indies comes to an end. Their contract would have ended after the World Cup only but the BCCI handed them a 45-day extension. The process for the selection of the coach has started already.
The BCCI has already advertised for the post of all coaches – head coach, batting coach, bowling coach and fielding coach. The current staff has had a good stint with the Indian team. Ravi Shastri took over as head coach in mid-2017 and had Bharat Arun, Sanjay Bangar and R Sridhar as his colleagues. Arun served as the bowling coach, Bangar as the batting coach and Sridhar as fielding coach.
The Indian cricket fraternity is now busy speculating who would be the India’s next coaches. So before BCCI finally appoint the men, we take a look at a team which can be nothing less than a dream
4. Fielding coach – Jonty Rhodes
Jonty Rhodes is one of the best if not the best fielders to have graced the game. He is arguably the only player in the history of the game who made a name for himself as a fielder more than as a batsman or bowler. He has an ample experience in coaching. The former South Africa star was Mumbai Indians’ fielding coach for nine years from 2009 to 2017.
