The BCCI Working Committee on Friday retained Team Director Ravi Shastri and the coaching staff headed by Duncan Fletcher until the ICC World Cup early next year in Australia and New Zealand.
Shastri, Fletcher and the support staff of Sanjay Bangar, Bharat Arun and MV Sridhar will now draw a plan for India’s World Cup title defence after the board took the decision to extend their contracts. Shastri was appointed as director for the ODI series in England last month.
Shastri agreed to continue in the role, which means he will have to cut down on his media commitments until the World Cup next year.
Also the BCCI on Friday decided to postpone its Annual General Meeting to November 20. It will be held in Chennai.
