Ravi Shastri Hints at Coaching Role: A New Innings Beckons?

Former Indian cricket team head coach Ravi Shastri has hinted at the possibility of taking up a managerial role in the Indian Premier League (IPL), expressing his interest in contributing to the sport by nurturing young talent. Shastri, known for his successful tenure with the Indian team from 2017 to 2021, recently shared his thoughts on coaching in the IPL during a conversation on Ravichandran Ashwin’s YouTube channel.

“If I ever go…,” Shastri began, “Not really. Not after doing India for 7 years. You never know what can come up in the future and how involved you might want to get.” He reflected on his time with the Indian team, highlighting the challenges faced during the Covid-19 pandemic. “You just wanted a break from the dugout, the dressing room, and everything,” he explained. “The broadcasting and the mic gave me the freedom to express myself again. And have some fun.”

While Shastri admitted to enjoying his current role as a broadcaster, he didn’t rule out the possibility of returning to a managerial role in the future. “You don’t rule that out,” he said. “Once you have been involved with the game and played the game and you wanted to contribute to the youth, then that will always linger in your mind.”

Shastri emphasized that his focus, if he were to return to coaching in the IPL, would be on nurturing young talent and helping them excel in the sport. “If I ever go there, it will be precisely for that reason,” he stated. “Not to see the superstars carrying on the way they are, but to cultivate, identify, and groom talent, and take them through the roof.”

He also highlighted the importance of passing on his knowledge and experience to the next generation of cricketers. “How you can get into the heads of the young kids and pass on the knowledge you have before you forget it yourself?” he questioned. “So never discount that, it would always be the case when you are handling youngsters.”

Shastri’s comments have sparked speculation about his future in cricket, with many fans eagerly awaiting his potential return to coaching in the IPL. His passion for nurturing young talent and his desire to contribute to the sport’s growth make him a valuable asset for any team looking to develop emerging cricketers.
