Bharat Arun, who is back as bowling coach, can no longer be part of IPL franchise RCB and TNPL side VB Thiruvallur Veeran due to conflict of interest.

"That tour was a landmark tour for us because if you look at the average age, that tour for us was the start and we do have the culture to win away from home". So, I don't need to elaborate too much on what he is good at, what his strengths are.

"You look at the last (2015) World Cup". He was earlier a cricket manager during 2007 tour of Bangladesh and then Team Director from 2014 August to 2016 June during which India won Test overseas series versus Sri Lanka, reached the semi-finals of 2015 World Cup and World T20 semi-finals in 2016.

India capitulated in the first Test at Galle before bouncing back to win the next two Tests and win the series 2-1.

Now that Kohli and Shastri have come together again, the performances will be further scrutinised.

On Monday batting coach Sanjay Bangar came to the BCCI headquarters to meet the CEO Rahul Johri and General Manager MV Sridhar with whom he had spent a lot of time in the West Indies last week.

A former allrounder who played 80 Tests for India, Shastri's first task with the national side will be a tour to Sri Lanka where they will three Tests, five ODIs and a T20I, starting on 26 July. I don't carry any baggage.

"We have worked with this team for the past three years so I think we have great understanding", countered Kohli. We also want that as players. "I want the players to only think about their roles". "The CAC did a fair job in assessing all candidates and came with the best possible decision", sources said. "I certainly don't take any added pressure", he added.

The Kohli-Kumble rift brought to light the lack of communication between the captain and the coach with even reports emerging that the two were not in speaking terms for over seven months. In fact, in terms of sheer work ethic and commitment to training and diligence, there is no equal of Dravid in Indian cricket.

From the very beginning of the selection process, it is well known that skipper Virat Kohli is backing Shastri in every moment, the same is happening now and Shastri is picking the supporting staff as per his convenience with the support of Kohli. "I would like to thank the CAC because it is a privilege and an honour to be the head coach of the Indian cricket team and I would like to thank them for thinking I am worthy enough to do the job", he said on Tuesday.
