The three-member committee formed by the Committee of Administrators (CoA) has decided to retain the services of Sanjay Bangar and fielding coach R Sridhar while appointing Bharat Arun as the bowling coach of the Indian senior men’s team. In addition to serving as batting coach, Bangar will also serve as Ravi Shastri’s deputy.
The committee met India’s new head coach Shastri in Mumbai today (July 18) and made the announcements. The appointments were made by CoA chairman Vinod Rai who acted on the recommendations of BCCI’s acting president CK Khanna, acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary and CoA member Diana Edulji.
Shastri said that he was very clear in his mind what his core team should be and in his words – “what you’ve just heard is my core team.”
