"The Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) hasn't contacted me yet. If they want my opinion, I'll go and speak to them. With Ravi Bhai, we share a great camaraderie, and will definitely be very happy if he continues. But I haven't been contacted so far," Kohli told reporters before leaving for West Indies.
The Board of Control for Cricket (BCCI) has invited applications for the position of the head coach for the men's cricket team, which has been held by foreign coaches in 15 out of the last 17 years.
In a statement, the BCCI said it was inviting applications for the positions of head coach, batting coach, bowling coach, fielding coach, physiotherapist, strength and conditioning coach as well as an administrative manager.
Former India all-rounder Shastri was appointed in 2017 and succeeded former captain Anil Kumble, who stepped down after a falling out with skipper Virat Kohli despite a successful run while in charge of the team.
