Former player Ravi Shastri has been appointed as India’s team director for an upcoming one-day series in England after losing the test series 3-

Though Zimbabwean Duncan Fletcher will continue as head coach, bowling coach Joe Dawes and fielding coach Trevor Penny have been “given a break” with former India players Sanjay Bangar and Bharat Arun appointed as assistant coaches and R. Sridhar as the fielding coach.

The ODIs run from Aug. 25-Sept. 5 and will be followed by a T20 international on Sept. 7.
