Shastri unlikely to get renewal, Arun, Bangar on way out
“The Board will advertise for the post of the Head Coach and Assistant Coaches of the Indian National Cricket Team (Men),” the BCCI said in a statement on Sunday.
Bangar, Arun and Sridhar were with team as bowling, batting and fielding coach respectively ever since Shastri was roped in as team director midway through the England tour.
Shastri’s tenure had ended with the World T20 in March-April. It is possible that whoever comes in as the head coach will handpick his own set of support staff.
Bangar has had a tough time being the head coach at Kings XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League. The team finished last in two consecutive seasons including this edition. Sridhar has also been with the franchise since 2014.
Arun on the other hand joined Royal Challengers Bangalore last season but RCB’s bowling has been considered as their weakest link.
