Indian batting legend Sunil Gavaskar feels that Ravi Shastri is the man who will get the job for the Indian team coach. He feels that Ravi Shastri has all the qualities that are required for this job and has also been successful as the Director of the Indian Team in the past so Shastri should be able to get the job.

Shastri has become the front-runner for the high-profile job after he formally submitted his application to the BCCI.

"Ravi actually was the one (during his tenure as Team Director) the turnaround actually started for the Indian cricket team back in 2014," Gavaskar told media

"After India lost in England, the BCCI asked him to come in as a team director...suddenly there was a change in the team's fortunes over a period of time. Now that he's applied, he's probably the man who is going to get the job," Gavaskar told media

Ravi Shastri shares a good relationship with Indian captain Virat Kohli and other players of the team as well and under his tenure from August 2014 to June 2016 India achieved great heights and Shastri was the man behind India's improved performances.

India won a One Day International Series in England and reached the semi-finals of both the t-20 and the ODI World Cups, they also won against South Africa at home in the test series and defeated Australia in a T-20 series in Australia.
