5 Legendary cricketers who can be India’s head coach

The current Indian setup would need a new coach with Ravi Shastri's contract expiring after the World Cup, given he denies to extend the contract.

Ricky Ponting has been a part of the Mumbai Indians side as a coach which won the IPL and currently is doing a great job dealing with the young and exuberant Delhi Capitals. He perhaps doesn’t even need a CV if he has to appear for an interview for this job. A three-time World Cup winner and a prolific run-getter in International cricket, Ponting achieved everything possible as a player.

In some of the videos released by the Delhi Capitals’ social media handles, it is very evident that Ponting spends a lot of time talking to the youngsters and motivating them, which perhaps is the biggest responsibility of a coach. Virat Kohli would love to have someone as aggressive as Ponting in his coaching ranks and this will also help youngsters like Pant, Shubman Gill and Prithvi Shaw grow.
