No extension clause in Ravi Shastri contract: BCCI

He will have to go through the fresh recruitment process

Ravi Shastri remains favourite to continue as the Indian cricket team’s head coach after the World Cup, but the BCCI will be forced to restart the process as the former India all-rounder’s service contract doesn’t have an extension or renewal clause.

Unlike most of the big football or NBA clubs, who have a renewal or an extension clause for their coaches, the BCCI, from Anil Kumble’s time as chief coach, never had that particular clause.

It has also been learnt that this year, the mini-IPL for women will role with three teams and four games on a round-robin basis. Last year, one exhibition match was held.

“The Indian women’s coach W.V. Raman and the national selectors have given 30 names and there will be 12 foreign players. So there will be three teams of 14 players each and they will play once against each other and then the final,” the official said.
