Ravi Shastri the favourite to become coach of indian cricket: Gavaskar

Vastavam web: Former captain Sunil Gavaskar feels his ex-teammate Ravi Shastri is the favorite to become the head coach of the Indian cricket team. Shastri has become the front-runner for the high-profile job after he formally submitted his application to the BCCI.”After India lost in England, the BCCI asked him to come in as a team director…suddenly there was a change in the team’s fortunes over a period of time. Now that he’s applied, he’s probably the man who is going to get the job,” Gavaskar told NDTV.

During his tenure, India won limited-overs away series against England in 2014, reached the semi-finals of the World Cup and World T20 (2015 and 2016 respectively), won away Test series against Sri Lanka, home series against South Africa and T20 away series against Australia.
