Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri to be questioned: The captain and coach of the Indian team will be questioned by the Committee of Administrators.
India captain Virat Kohli and coach Ravi Shastri will be questioned by CoA (Committee of Administrators) regarding India’s performance in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. While India were spectacular throughout the tournament, a loss in the semi-final against New Zealand saw them getting knocked out of the tournament.

It is also understood that CoA will also interrogate chairman of selectors MSK Prasad. CoA will be led by chairman Vinod Rai, Diana Edulji and Lt Gen (Retd) Ravi Thodge.
“We will certainly have a review meeting once the coach and the captain are back from their breaks. I will not put a date and time but we will speak to them.
“Also we will speak to selection committee head on road ahead. India’s campaign has just ended. How, when and where are not the questions that I will be able to tell you now,” CoA chief Vinod Rai told PTI from Singapore.
As far as the selection committee is concerned, many believe that Sarandeep Singh and Devang Gandhi have had virtually no inputs and are likely to be questioned. “Agreed that none of them [selectors] have stature of Dilip Vengsarkar but together they can still hold their ground on cricketing logic.
“Neither Sarandeep [Singh] nor Devang [Gandhi] has any tangible inputs. MSK [Prasad] got some respite once Jatin Paranjpe and Gagan Khoda re-joined,” a senior BCCI source was quoted as saying.
Firstly I want to thank all our fans who came in huge numbers to support the team. You made it a memorable tournament for all of us & we definitely felt the love showered upon the team. We are all disappointed & share the same emotions as you. We gave everything we had.Jai hind🇮🇳 pic.twitter.com/rFwxiUdqK5

Kohli and Shastri will be questioned on why Ambati Rayudu was persisted till the last series before the World Cup if the team management had plans to drop him, why there were three wicket-keeper batsmen in the squad for the World Cup and why Mahendra Singh Dhoni was sent in to bat at No. 7 in the semi-final.
