IPL 2022: 5 Teams Who Might Target Ravi Shastri As Coach

It might not have been even a month since the conclusion of IPL 2021 but the preparations for IPL 2022 are already in full swing. Teams might be working behind the scenes to get their squad sorted before the mega auctions. Lets look into details Which IPL teams Might Target Ravi Shastri As The Head Coach

The presence of a strong coach is equally important in a tournament like IPL. Ravi Shastri’s tenure as India coach came to an end post the T20 World Cup 2021. He will be someone who will be on top of the list for many teams as head coach.

We look at Which IPL teams Might Target Ravi Shastri As The Head Coach

#5 Sunrisers Hyderabad

The Sunrisers Hyderabad had a miserable IPL season this year. They had a season to forget both on and off the field. The exclusion and expulsion of their charismatic skipper, David Warner dominated the news. Their wooden spoon finish didn’t draw as much attention as their handling of Warner. 

To make matters worse for SRH, their team mentor, VVS Laxman, had to quit the coaching staff role as he has been signed as NCA’s director. SRH will be keen to get on board someone like Ravi Shastri who Amy uplift the entire squad singlehandedly. He is the tonic that SRH desperately need.

#4 Lucknow

The Lucknow franchise is the costliest franchise in IPL history. Goenka group owned team will go all-out to do what is best for the team. There is a big possibility that they might reach out to someone like Shastri to be the team’s head coach. Shastri’s reputation as not just a head coach but also as a man-manager are too hard to resist. For a new franchise like Lucknow, it will make complete sense to have Shastri at the helm.

#3 Punjab Kings

Punjab Kings miraculously seem to get stuck at the 6th spot in the points table. They try mighty hard but eventually fail to make the big leap. Kings’ have had the who’s who of the coaching staff but none of them have helped their cause. They will do well to approach someone like Shastri who knows a thing or two about winning the big trophies.

#2 Rajasthan Royals

Rajasthan Royals for far too long have underperformed in the pretext of being a money-ball team. They have failed to put in collective performances season after season. Their coaching staff has Kumar Sangakkara who calls the final shots. But he is too good a gentleman to talk tough with the players when needed.

What RR need is someone like Ravi Shastri, who will tell the players things as they are. This soft franchise needs a tough coach like Shastri who can ignite the winning spark.

#1 Ahmedabad 

The rumour mills are already abuzz with the news that the Ahmedabad franchise are keen to rope in Mr. Shastri as their head coach. Ahmedabad franchise is new to the setup. They need someone like Shastri to guide them. Ahmedabad could even appoint him as Cricket Director!
