After much anticipation, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Tuesday announced Ravi Shastri as new head coach of the Indian cricket team.
The Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) comprising of Sourav Ganguly, Sachin Tendulkar & VVS Laxman had conducted interviews for the national coach earlier in the day.
Shashtri was being considered frontrunner for the post as he shares a very good rapport with players especially skipper Virat Kohli.
While Indian cricketers have welcomed Shastri’s appointment as head coach, most fans have slammed BCCI for giving in to Kohli’s demands.
Take a look at some of the reactions:
