Ravi Shastri's record as India's coach and his familiarity with Virat Kohli's team couldn't be ignored by the Kapil Dev-led Cricket Advisory Committee that also included former Test opener and coach Anshuman Gaekwad and former women's team captain Shantha Rangaswamy.

In 21 Tests since July 2017, under Ravi Shastri, the Indian cricket team won 13 of them. In T20Is, India registered 25 victories from 36 games with a win percentage of 69.44. The ODI record takes the cake with 43 wins in 60 games and a success rate of 71.67.
The Kapil Dev-led Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) finally got the go-ahead to pick the next India coach. The Committee of Administrators (CoA) received the ‘no conflict’ declaration from the members of the CAC, which also includes Anshuman Gaekwad and Shantha Rangaswamy.
Kapil Dev, Anshuman Gaekwad and Shantha Rangaswamy will comprise the three-member committee to select Indian cricket team’s next head coach, the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) decided on Friday.
