Ravi Shastri Can't Produce Instant Results: Sunil Gavaskar to NDTV
Sunil Gavaskar welcomed the appointments of Ravi Shastri as director of cricket and Sanjay Bangar and Bharat Arun as assistant coaches of the Indian team but warned against expecting instant results.
After India's 3-1 defeat in the Test series against England, the Board of Control for Cricket in India, in a clear snub to coach Duncan Fletcher, made three new appointments to fuel speculation that Fletcher will quit before India's home series against the West Indies later this year.
However, Gavaskar said that former India cricketers Shastri, Bangar and Arun, named in their positions only for the ODI series against England, will not be able to make any impact immediately.
The five-match ODI series begins on August 25 at Bristol.
