After the upcoming T20 World Cup 2021, India’s head coach Ravi Shastri is expected to step down. Bharat Arun, the bowling coach, and R Sridhar, the fielding coach, have also opted to go, with the BCCI looking for replacements. After the World Cup, Rahul Dravid is expected to take over as head coach, while the support staff is still being finalised. Meanwhile, it’s been reported that CVC Capital, the Ahmedabad franchise owners, have invited Ravi Shastri and Co. to join the backroom team. Shastri, on the other hand, is said to have requested extra time to make a decision because he is now focused on the T20 World Cup.

It’s also been reported that Arun and Sridhar are interested in joining the coaching staff. The current India head coach is willing to take on a coaching role in the IPL in exchange for a return to commentary. If he receives a commentary contract with the BCCI and also accepts a coaching position with an IPL franchise, he will be in a conflict of interest situation. Ravi Shastri, on the other hand, may directly connect with the broadcaster while still being involved with the IPL squad, like VVS Laxman has done in the past.

The BCCI has decided to let the two new IPL franchises sign up to three players outside of the auction to begin assembling their squads. CVC Capitals is also anxious to finalise the arrangement with the backroom personnel as soon as possible since they want the pros to be engaged in decisions about player retention and other matters.

They’re also trying to hire a CEO and an administrative manager as soon as possible to handle a variety of tasks. There were doubts regarding their participation in the IPL only a few days after they purchased the Ahmedabad team for INR 5600 crore last month. For their stakes in a betting firm in the United Kingdom, CVC drew unfavourable attention. The BCCI, on the other hand, has cleared them and is said to have inked the franchise agreement as well.
