New India cricket coach Ravi Shastri plans to adopt a more hands-off approach to the role than his predecessor Anil Kumble, with the 55-year-old saying he has no intention of trying to act as a tutor the players.

Kumble stepped down last month citing a breakdown in his relationship with skipper Virat Kohli, who according to media reports, resented the former captain's 'headmasterly' methods.

Shastri was handed the coaching reigns on Tuesday, a year after losing the job to Kumble, and the former all-rounder promised a fresh outlook to the job.

'At the highest level, cricketers are more or osswaldundosswald.com less settled,' Shastri told the Times of India newspaper.

'So it is more to do with working on their mental strength, helping build their confidence, helping them stay organised in their daily activities as against tinkering with their style of play.

'It's not about 'tutoring' them about everything and telling them what and what not to do.

There's very little coaching at the highest level. It's about fine-tuning and mentoring, about effective communication.
