I've to be a good value addition to team: Bharat Arun

'Ravi Shastris, Anil Kumbles will come and go': Chief coach sends out clear message as second stint begins

Former Australian cricketer Matthew Hayden has come out in support of Ravi Shastri, the newly-appointed Indian head coach, and said that he would make a fantastic coach for the Indian side. These Ravi Shastris, Anil Kumbles will come and go.

Kumble described his partnership with Kohli as "untenable" before stepping down last month after the Champions Trophy.

Captain Virat Kohli and coach Ravi Shastri addressed the media in a pre departure press conference before leaving for Sri Lanka, where they will be up for their first assignment together as a coach-captain duo.

With these appointments the process of choosing coaching team has come to a full circle as this will have a direct impact on the performance of Team India which gears up to take on Sri Lanka from 26th of July onwards. Our main aim is to win the series.

India lost the first of the three-test series against their South Asian neighbours but won the next two matches.

Here, we look at the timeline of events ever since Kumble's appointment as head coach a year ago.

The decision to appoint Arun, on a two-year contract, was taken after Shastri met the Committee of Administrators (CoA) and BCCI officials, including acting President C K Khanna and Secretary Amitabh Chaudhary. We also want that as players. "I only have the bat in my hand, my job is to do my best, lot of speculations around", Kohli concluded.




"The fabric of Indian cricket will remain and the credit should go to everyone who's participated in this Indian team".

The kind of hype surrounding the India team coach's appointment over the last few weeks gave the impression that it was the most important job after the country's prime minister.

It is then that Kohli told Sehwag he had reservations."Paaji, I have a lot of respect for you for what you can bring to the table but you have to understand that there is a professional set-up in place, therefore this cannot happen".

"We have worked with this team for the past three years so I think we have great understanding".

"That tour for us was start of the belief that we can win, win away from home and we have the side to win away from home". Everyone of us has faced hardships in the past.

"I certainly don't take added pressure because the responsibility has been given to me. I was very clear in my mind what my core team would be, and what you heard is my core team". Days after the announcement Bhara Arun was appointed as the bowling coach by the BCCI on Shastri's nod, which left the future of Rahul and Zaheer uncertain with the team. That happens with good communication with the support staff.
