Ravi Shastri Appointed Indian Cricket Team Coach

Former Indian all-rounder Ravi Shastri has been appointed Indian Cricket Team Coach until 2019 World Cup.

Shastri will replace former captain Anil Kumble, who stepped down as coach last month after falling out with Captain Virat Kohli.

The Indian Cricket Board also named former India Seamer Zaheer Khan as team's bowling consultant, while former batting great Rahul Dravid was appointed as batting consultant for overseas test series.

The first challenge for the new coaching set-up will begin later this month when India tour Sri Lanka to play three tests, five one-dayers and one twenty20 international.
