Shastri replaced Anil Kumble under controversial circumstances

Prior to Shastri, it was Anil Kumble who held this coveted post. However, skipper Kohli had reservations against his style of coaching. This dressing-room conflict between Kohli and Kumble soon turned into a public spat, which led to Shastri being appointed as the new coach.

Procedure

When could BCCI start looking for new coach?

Shastri's contract is scheduled to expire after the World Cup, but NewsBytes believes that he could be given a partial extension to continue until India's tour of Windies in July 2019.

Yet, the procedure is likely to begin during the two-week window post the World Cup final on July 14.

Notably, Shastri and Co. are likely to get shortlisted automatically.

Under Shastri, India attained the number one rank in Tests, including the historic first-ever Test series win in Australia.

Further, Kohli has praised Shastri's role as coach as he feels the latter has allowed him to grow, both as a player and a captain.

Still, it all depends on the World Cup performance, as a win or semi-final finish would seal Shastri's next tenure.
