BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel today said that the Indian team will be re-energised under Ravi Shastri, who has been appointed as the Team Director for the 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.

“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 Mr 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.
