"At present the team is leaving for Sri Lanka and will only be accompanied by assistant coach Sanjay Bangar, bowling coach Bharat Arun and fielding coach R Sridhar", he said.
Shastri in the press conference said, "Shastri's and Kumble's will come and go, the team is more important". If India are the number one Test team today, it is because of the effort of the players. "Ravi Shastris, Anil Kumbles will come and go", said Shastri.
Shastri lavished praise on India's bowling coach Bharat Arun and said he has been excellent when it comes to coaching.
"That tour was a landmark tour for us because if you look at the average age, that tour for us was the start and we do have the culture to win away from home". (His coaching career) It's outstanding right from the junior teams, the "A" teams to the junior World Cup teams. "I did not know about the conditions of Kumble's contract that it was one year". You look at the last World Cup.

Since Shastri was earlier attached to the team and that too in major tournaments like the 2015 World Cup, 2016 Asia Cup, Kohli thinks it will not be hard for the squad to get accustomed with him. "There is track record, 15 yrs he has been coaching".
