Ravi Shastri: People like me and Anil Kumble will come and go

In a clear snub to the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC), newly appointed India coach Ravi Shastri seems to have managed to convince the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Advisors (CoA) to take Bharat Arun on board as bowling coach.

Talking to Times of India, he said, "I don't know the inner workings of Indian cricket but what I can tell you is that Ravi Shastri will make a fantastic coach after being a great director of cricket".

Kumble described his partnership with Kohli as "untenable" before stepping down last month after the Champions Trophy.

The Sri Lanka tour marks the start of a challenging season for India as they are set to play South Africa, England and Australia away from home in the next one year.

"I don't think there is added pressure because what has to happen will happen". I will carry on from where I have left.

"We do have the culture now to win Test matches and series away".

The first test match between the two teams will begin on July 26.

Sanjay Bangar, who has been the batting coach for the last three years, was elevated to assistant coach. He wants the BCCI to compensate him if it also means a pay cut.

Chinese growth beats expectations at 6.9pc
Analysts polled by AFP had forecast growth of 6.8 percent after the economy expanded 6.9 percent in the first quarter. In 2016, China's GDP grew 6.7 percent, which is its worst performance in the past 26 years.

"I never come with any baggage".

Shastri in the press conference said, "Shastri's and Kumble's will come and go, the team is more important". On this entire speculation fiasco, Kohli said, "I only have the bat in hand. I want the players to only think about their roles".

When asked about India's success in the recent past, Shastri says the team deserves all the credit. At the late time that we got to know it was only fair that we follow a process to bring about either a change or extend Kumble.

Shastri, reflected on India's last tour of Sri Lanka, where the team bounced back to win the Test series 2-1. "I started as a player and you only focus on the series that you have to play", the Indian captain said.

"We showed more belief in our abilities that we could win from any situation and that really turned our mindset around". That happens with good communication with the support staff.

"I certainly don't take added pressure because the responsibility has been given to me".

"We have worked together for three years".

It has now been announced that another committee involving officials from the BCCI, CoA and the head coach Shastri has been formed to decide whether Dravid and Zaheer are even required and if yes, then in what capacity.
