On Friday, Three-member Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) led by Kapil Dev re-appointed Ravi Shastri as the head coach of Team India.
The 57-year-old was given an extension of 45-days after his contract expired after the Cricket World Cup.
Former Indian all-rounder has been handed a new contract which runs out after the ICC T20 World Cup 2021.
Shastri, however, insisted that his endeavour would be to help the current team build a legacy.
After his re-appointment, Shastri thanked the CAC for having faith in him. He further added that it’s an honour to be a part of the Team India setup.
Shastri, however, insisted that the focus is to build a legacy which very few teams have left behind which others teams going down will try and emulate.
He emphasized that the focus is to do the same and the team is on the right track. Although, he did say there’s always room for improvement.
The 57-year-old was Team India’s director between 2014 and 2016, was appointed the head coach after Anil Kumble’s resignation after defeat in the final of Champions Trophy 2017.
Team India won its first-ever series in Australia, under Shastri.
However, Team India exited the World Cup in the semi-final despite being the table toppers.
Shastri made it clear that the management is not afraid of making experiments and will invest in youth. He added that his dream is to see Team India as the best fielding side.
He signed off by saying that he wants to see a smooth transition taking place with the setup.
