Contract with India’s team manager is not renewed
The senior men’s team’s permanent manager policy has been abandoned by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), who have likely returned to the former practice of selecting managers on a series-by-series basis.

Cricbuzz can confirm that Girish Dongre’s contract has expired and the BCCI has decided not to renew it. Dongre served as the administrative manager of the Indian team for the previous few years. For the recently finished West Indies series, the Indian squad had a new administrative leader, Dhaval Shah of the Gujarat Cricket Association (GCA), and there would be another one for the upcoming match against Sri Lanka, but with a different title.

Cricbuzz is aware of Saurashtra Cricket Association president Jaidev Shah.It is believed that the contract of Dongre, who was recruited by the BCCI under the previous Committee of Administrators (COA)regime, which was in place during the UAE Twenty20 World Cup. But he had left for South Africa, perhaps for a brief extension. He has not been connected to the team since the series ended earlier in January.
In the position, Dongre took over for Sunil Subramaniam in late 2019. As a result of numerous Indian players testing positive for COVID-19 on the tour of England last summer, which resulted in the cancellation of the fifth and final Test, he came under scrutiny.
