The Shastri-Kohli duo along with bowling coach Bharat Arun and fielding coach R Sridhar were part of a set-up that won two Test series in Australia.
To point to the lack of success at ICC events and criticise the leader(s) involved is very natural, very human. To do so by excluding all else smacks of a lack of basic understanding of the dynamics of professional sport.
Gavaskar felt Rohit was the ‘best man’ to lead India to an ICC trophy, with the Men In Blue having won one last in the 2013 Champions Trophy under MS Dhoni.
Shastri also heaped praise on outgoing bowling coach Bharat Arun and fielding coach R Sridhar, whose tenures too ended with the team's World Cup campaign.
Shastri was appointed Team Director by erstwhile BCCI president Srinivasan back in 2014 after India lost the Test series in England 1-3.
As a new leadership group prepares to take charge, the immediate task is straightforward – get the house in order with the next World Cup in Australia, 11 months away, in mind. This trophy-less drought has gone on too long, honestly.
Rohit, who will be taking over T20 captaincy from the New Zealand series, is also being tipped to lead India in the 2023 ODI World Cup and the formal announcement in that regard may happen sooner than later.
India paid the price for losing back-to-back games against Pakistan and New Zealand early on as Virat Kohli and his men failed to reach the semifinals of the showpiece event.
The outgoing India bowling coach also said the team was in a much better position now than when he joined the side seven years ago.
Asked if the absence of a gap between the Indian Premier League and the T20 World Cup became a factor, India bowling coach Arun responded in the positive.
Besides Kohli and Rohit, other Indian stars like Jasprit Bumrah, Ravichandran Ashwin and mentor MS Dhoni were also seen talking to the Scottish players.
India will have to redefine their T20 culture and integrate their talent with the right attitude if they aren’t to remain static in a fast-evolving landscape.
BCCI announced the appointment of former captain Dravid as the head coach of the national team on Wednesday. He will replace Ravi Shastri, who formed a successful partnership with skipper Virat Kohli.
Chand, 28, had called time on his playing career in India earlier this year and is currently representing the USA team.
Dravid’s appointment isn’t a case of entitlement; he is the best person to take Indian cricket forward as it finds itself on the cusp of transition.
Rohit Sharma welcomed the appointment of Rahul Dravid as the head coach of the team
T20 World Cup 2021: Decision making can go wrong when you are on road for long time, says Rohit Sharma
Rohit Sharma admitted that some of the "decision making" during the first two games of the ongoing T20 World Cup against Pakistan and New Zealand was a result of fatigue.
Afghanistan have won their two games against Scotland and Namibia, and were on the verge of an upset victory against Pakistan before Asif Ali took the game away with four sixes in one over.
'Lot of work to be done': Vikram Rathour says he has reapplied for Team India batting coach's position
Rathour is the only one from the current support staff, who is keen on a second stint as head coach Ravi Shastri, bowling coach Bharath Arun and fielding coach R Sridhar have decided to move on.
In a surprise late-night post on Instagram on Monday, 39-year-old Yuvraj posted a clip of his final century for India when he smashed 150 against England in Cuttack in January 2017 and posted a message about his possible comeback.
