Virat's first choice is Shastri, chances are that he will be the next coach
As coach, Ravi Shastri has always been the first choice of Team India captain Virat Kohli.

Other members of the CAC, Sachin Tendulkar was still in favor of Ravi Shastri, but by 2-1 votes, the CAC chose Anil Kumble as coach.
