MUMBAI: The Indian team’s support staff, led by head coach Ravi Shastri, has joined hands with Ironwood Education for its cricket coaching programme.

“I personally realise the great role of standardised and systematic coaching practices in bringing Indian cricket to its present status and capacity. Such initiatives will lay the foundation of further growth of India’s biggest sport,” he said in a press release.
