Former India batsman Sanjay Bangar has been named the head coach for India's upcoming tour of Zimbabwe. Bharat Arun and R Sridhar, the former bowling coach and fielding coach respectively, find no place in the touring party.

 

Former first-class cricketer, Abhay Sharma, who has worked alongside Rahul Dravid with the U-19 team, has been appointed the fielding coach.

The MS Dhoni-led team is scheduled to play three T20s and three ODIs in Zimbabwe, beginning June 11. The selectors have named a largely inexperienced squad for the tour, with Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja all being 'rested'.
