Ravi Shastri is working as team India’s coach since July 2017. Under his tenure, India won 11 Tests out of 21 in which seven lost and three draws. In ODIs, India won 45 out of 63 games, lost 15, tied 2 and one no result whereas in T20Is India won 25 out of 37 and lost just 11 with one no-result game.

Despite such records, Ravi Shastri was not a favorite choice for many experts and fans in India as India lost the semi-final of World Cup 2019. Ravi Shastri has the backing of Indian skipper Virat Kohli which also helped him to retain the position of Indian cricket team coach.
