Shastri has guided the Indian team to Test series wins in Australia twice. Under him, India also reached the semi-final of the 2019 World Cup and the WTC Final but went down to New Zealand in both the knockout games.
Shastri is with the Test team for the five Tests against England, while Rahul Dravid is at the helm in the white-ball tour to Sri Lanka. Shastri's contract ends after the T20 World Cup in October-November.
Kapil Dev famously became the first Indian captain to lift the Cricket World Cup 38 years ago. Their route to the final saw them comfortably make it through Group B with four wins from six, before seeing off hosts England at Old Trafford in the semi-final.
