Ravi Shastri was appointed as Team India director for the ODI series against England. He will now stay with the team till 2015 ICC World Cup
It was on the cards and the script folded as expected. The BCCI working committee on Friday extended Ravi Shastri's tenure as Team India director till the end of the 2015 ICC World Cup in Australia and New Zealand. Shastri was appointed as director for the ODI series in England last month. Duncan Fletcher will stay as head coach.
The BCCI working committee agreed to extend Shastri's contract after the former Indian all-rounder agreed to continue in his new role in spite of being a busy mediaman. He will start with India's upcoming home series with the West Indies and then travel to Australia later this year and then the World Cup.
