Ravi Shastri, the former cricket captain of Indian team, was on 2 June 2015 re-appointed as the Director of Indian cricket team for the Bangladesh tour. His appointment was made by BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India).
Team India's tour to Bangladesh will start from 10 June 2015. During the tour, India will play one Test and three One-Day Internationals matches.
His appointment is a stop-gap arrangement for the short tour as the BCCI is yet to decide on a full-time coach. The post had been lying vacant since 2013 when Duncan Fletcher vacated the office.
Shastri was appointed as Director of Indian team for the first time during India’s tour to Australia and in the subsequent 2015 World Cup. Till now, Shastri represented India in 80 Tests and 150 ODIs and was part of the side, which lifted the 1983 World Cup.
