Dear Ravi Shastri, Sachin Tendulkar can not join as consultant - here's why

Minutes after BCCI secretary Amitabh Choudhary announced in a press conference yesterday that Bharat Arun was appointed Team India's bowling coach, Ravi Shastri, seated alongside Choudhary, said: "I was in England watching the tennis (when he was made the team's head coach)".

A four-member panel, formed by the Committee of Administrators (CoA), has decided that newly-appointed head coach Ravi Shastri would get a salary of Rs 8 crore per annum.

It's been six weeks since the hunt for the coach began after the fall out between Kohli and Kumble that saw the latter withdrawing from the race, and every passing day has produced twists, turns, controversies, melodrama.

French military head quits over Macron budget cuts
On Friday, de Villiers wrote on his Facebook , "no one deserves to be blindly followed", referring to the French president. President Macron's plans for military cutbacks have been criticised by opponents and even some in his own party.

On the upcoming Sri Lanka tour, Kohli said, "I don't think there is added pressure". India play three Tests, five ODIs and a Twenty20 with the first Test starting in Galle on July 26.

"I don't think there is added pressure because what has to happen will happen". Mine will be a refresh button that will be pushed and I carry on from where I left.

Arun will be remembered for slipping and falling while running in to bowl his first ball in Test cricket while taking the lay-up.

Matthews wins Stage 16 in Tour, Froome keeps yellow jersey
Romain Bardet (France) and Rigoberto Uran (Colombia) are also both within 30 seconds of the lead with only five stages remaining. "I'm just happy to get through today's stage", said Froome, adding he was looking forward to the race reaching the Alps.

Sanjay Bangar, who has been the batting coach for the last three years, was elevated to assistant coach. "Regardless of what happens in the outside world, as a team we aspire to achieve what we want to achieve". I don't come in with any baggage. "I have done commentary with him and I know that he is a strong communicator, which is critical for the coach's role".

For years-make that decades-we have complained about all the murky wheeling and dealing that goes on behind the scenes, about the lack of transparency in Indian cricket. "Lots of speculations have been going around, but those things are not in my control. We showed that we have the ability and we can win from any situation". It is understood that Shastri had clearly expressed his preference for Arun, his team-mate from Under-19 and India days, in his meeting with Johri on Monday. We would want to continue the way we played the last time.

The odds were against India the last time they toured Sri Lanka in 2015, but Virat Kohli led the inexperienced side to a comeback win in the test series which changed the team's mindset, the captain said yesterday. "I started as a player and you only focus on the series that you have to play", the Indian captain said. I did that because I take them along and also not give an opportunity to say that we took a decision behind their back and all that.
