Sachin Tendulkar steps in to convince ‘apprehensive’ Ravi Shastri for India coach job: Report


New Delhi: Just two days ago, Ravi Shastri confirmed that he is going to apply for the post of Team India’s head coach after Anil Kumble controversial resignation.

While many are linking Shastri’s interest in the top job with his apparent ‘excellent rapport’ with skipper Virat Kohli, it has actually come out that not Kohli but Sachin Tendulkar was the one who convinced the former Team India Director to apply for the job.

Earlier, reports claimed that Shastri was apprehensive in applying for the post, claiming that he was deliberately ignored last year despite doing a good job and hence does not want to stand in the queue this time.

As per a report , Tendulkar spoke with Shastri to reconsider his stance on the subject. Interestingly, both are in London.

Sachin is part of the three-man Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) which also has Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman. The CAC has been given the responsibility of selecting the coach once again.
