This will be Shastri’s fourth stint with the national team. He served briefly as the Cricket Manager (2007 tour of Bangladesh), Team Director (2014-2016) and head coach (2017-2019).

Shastri pipped former India teammates Lalchand Rajput and Robin Singh as well as former New Zealand coach Mike Hesson and Australia’s Tom Moody to the role. Former West Indies and Afghanistan coach Phil Simmons pulled out of the race, citing personal reasons.
