Former player Venkatesh Prasad applies for the job of India's coach

Former player Venkatesh Prasad applies for the job of India's coach

In the race with Shastri are the likes of as well as the other applicants like Virender Sehwag, Tom Moody and others.

Indian cricket team fielding coach R Sridhar feels that Ravi Shastri and Anil Kumble are two different personalities and their way of leading a side can not be compared. A lot of people have been applying for the team's head coach position including Virender Sehwag.

"I have not applied for the head coach's role yet and might not do so before the deadline".

And this is where Shastri becomes the front-runner for the job as earlier, a source close to developments had told CricketNext at the Board had approached Shastri on the insistence of captain Virat Kohli.

The speed gun, who represented India in 33 Tests and 162 ODIs, had applied for the post in 2016, but he did not make the final list.

That would focus the aid more on people with lower incomes than the House legislation, which bases its subsidies on age. Health care stocks pulled back Friday, but the sector was still on track to post a weekly gain of more than 3 percent.


The deadline of the application for the India coach post is July 9. For one, they alleged, "Anil Kumble treated players like school kids."The coach reportedly gave the players a "dressing-down" after the team lost the ICC Champions Trophy final to Pakistan at The Oval on June 18".

The tweet came after Anil Kumble resigned from the position of Team India coach last week hinting at differences between him and the Men in Blue's captain.

Many in the cricket fraternity believe Shastri is the frontrunner for the job, given his successful relationship with Kohli during his tenure as Team India director. However, the former India paceman hasn't officially given his name for the job of the head coach but wishes to join the team in the capacity of a bowling or assistant coach.

Interestingly, Team India fielding coach R Sridhar has already compared Shastri's working style to that of Kumble.

As it appears that Ravi Shastri might be selected monotonously, and at this moment, one must be aware of the flaws and positive impact that can be found under the coaching of Ravi Shastri. He said, "May be I will write, but this is what I am very keen about (the support staff job)".
