The Team India head coach is yet to be decided. They were rumours that Ravi Shastri would be Head coach for a span of two years but BCCI has denied these rumours .

“The BCCI is yet to decide on the selection of the India head coach,” Choudhary said.

“No decision has been made on the appointment of the new coach, the CAC (Cricket Advisory Committee) is still deliberating over it,” he added.
“I think the three who will take a call on the subject are very tall figures,” Choudhary added, referring to CAC members Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman.

Reports of Shastri being appointed new India coach emerged shortly after Ganguly had gone on record saying that the name of the coach would be announced only after skipper Virat Kohli was consulted.

Sources had said that Shastri had applied for the post after being convinced to do so by Tendulkar.There were many differences between the Coach and the skipper,but after the loss of team India to Pakistan in the ICC Champions Trophy Anil kumble has submitted his resignation mid air when the players were traveling to West Indies.

He tweeted his resignation, stating that the relationship between him and skipper Virat Kohli was ‘untenable’.

While Kohli had stated during the Champions Trophy that there was nothing​ between him and Kumble, the latter’s resignation and the subsequent observations about maintaining the sanctity of the dressing room, made by Kohli in the West Indies, made it clear that there was no love lost between the two.
