New Delhi: Aug 19, 2014

BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel on Tuesday said that the Indian team will be re-energised under Ravi Shastri, who has been appointed as the Team Director for the One-Day International (ODI) series against England.

“We are quite sure that the boys will be re-energised under the guidance of Shastri. His on-the-field and off-the-field knowledge will be very helpful to to bring the team back into the game,” the BCCI secretary Patel told reporters.

“Since last two weeks BCCI is discussing the entire issue. As a combination of much debate and discussion yesterday, the decision was taken to appoint Shastri,” said Patel.

BCCI has also given break to the bowling coach Joe Dawes and the fielding coach, Trevor Penney, for the One-Day series and appointed Sanjay Bangar, former Indian all-rounder, and former India fast bowler Bharat Arun as the Asst. coaches of the team.

“At the moment, two other coaches have also been replaced by three Indian coaches as you know. This will obviously bring some fresh air into the team,” he said.
