New Delhi: Former Indian cricket team coach Ravi Shastri has given a big statement. “There was a team in India that I wanted to see fail as a coach,” he said. He gave this statement to a newspaper in England. Ravi Shastri was the first director and then coach of the Indian team from 2014 to 2021.
in dispute about appointment
Ravi Shastri was made the director of the Indian team in 2014. Meanwhile, the Indian team was knocked out of the ODI World Cup after losing in the semi-finals to Australia. After this Shastri was removed from his post and Anil Kumble became the new coach of India. However, in 2017, Ravi Shastri was appointed as the full-time coach.
The role of the then captain Virat Kohli is considered important in making Ravi Shastri the coach of the team. Kohli has always wanted Ravi as his coach and this is the reason why Anil Kumble has been forced to resign without completing his tenure.
“I have thick skin,” Shastri told The Guardian. level 2? Everyone went to hell. And in a country like India there is always jealousy. There was a gang of people who failed me. You see my skin was thicker and thicker than the Duke Ball. Here you need thick skin. Rob (England cricket team manager) will do as he is told. Every day he will get justice like me. I am glad that he has the experience to captain Kent because the most important thing is to interact with the players.
Rob Key has recently been given the charge of England cricket. He has also been a famous commentator like Ravi Shastri. Also, he does not have a coaching degree like Shastri.
Same national team everywhere
Based on the experience of working with the Indian team, Ravi Shastri believes that the national team works the same way everywhere in cricket. He said, ‘Rob has to work harder for home matches, but when it comes to the national team, he is the same everywhere.’
Most importantly, you have to create the mindset to win and compete. To achieve this, you have to be domineering. Shastri says that when team culture is considered, what is happening should change.
