Lannister posted a topic in Cricket TalkTaking note of India’s batting collapses during the Test matches in England, the Committee of Administrators (CoA) overseeing the BCCI is learnt to have communicated to the team’s head coach Ravi Shastri that such performances despite adequate preparation time for the series are “unacceptable”. In the first Test at Edgbaston, India faltered in their chase of 194 for victory in the fourth innings, losing the match by 31 runs. The Virat Kohli-led team lost the second Test at Lord’s by an innings and 159 runs to trail 2-0 in the five-match series. “The CoA has already mentioned this to Ravi Shastri, that after having sent the team so much in advance, allowing adequate preparation time (in English conditions), this kind of performance from the top order is not encouraging at all. The Committee has also mentioned in its communication that they need to discuss this with the head coach,” sources told The Indian Express. “When the team returns, the CoA will have a meeting with the selectors at the first opportunity to discuss some of the procedures,” sources said. https://indianexpress.com/article/sports/cricket/administrators-to-indian-coach-ravi-shastri-batting-slump-unacceptable-india-vs-england-5305371/
