The Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators [CoA] will reportedly review Ravi Shastri-led India coaching staff’s performance after the conclusion of their England tour. India’s tour of England ends after the fifth and final Test which starts from Friday. England have already clinches the five-match series 3-1.

CoA member Diana Edulji said while the committee refrains from being involved in on-field activities, they will ‘definitely review the performance of the coaching staff’.

“We have consciously avoided getting involved in on-field activities and strongly feel that the team management and selectors are there to look into the performance of the players,” Edulji was quoted as saying by the Hindustan Times on Wendesday. “But yes, we will definitely review the performance of the coaching staff when it comes up for a review. As you are aware, they are all on a one-year contract.”

The practice is for the team manager to file report after a tour ends. However, Shastri has the calling shots on whether the current manager Sunil Subramanian will get an extension. Currently, the India support staff barring Shastri has been given a one-year contract.

However, Edulji said she expects Subramanian to file an ‘honest report’ and to be ‘fair in his assessment’. “I do get what you are trying to ask, but then, that is where the manager has to be honest to his role. The manager must file an honest report of whatever happened during the England tour. If you see black and then you decide to call it white, that doesn’t become white. I am sure he will be fair in his assessment,” she said.
