Ravi Shastri’s tenure as the head coach of the Indian cricket team has come to an end. Now Rahul Dravid has taken over this post. Team India’s performance in the ICC T20 World Cup tournament has been very disappointing, in such a situation it is natural to fall on the head coach. Cricket fans are trolling Shastri fiercely on social media, while the players of the Indian team also tied moments of praise of Ravi Shastri.
Indian cricketer Dinesh Karthik has praised the former coach and talked about his achievements. According to Karthik, Ravi Shastri should also be judged on the number of bilateral series he has won as the Indian head coach and not just focusing on the ICC trophy count.
He added that “we should also speak about how many bilateral series we won under him”. According to him Ravi Shastri has left the Indian team in a strong position. Karthik praised Shastri as well as the coaching staff.
“We Should Also Speak About How Many Bilateral Series We Won Under Him” – Dinesh Karthik Bats For Ravi Shastri’s Achievements
Ravi Shastri and coaching staff Bharat Arun and R Sridhar have opted not to extend their tenure. And now a new bowling coach and a fielding coach are set to be appointed. Over the years, India has dominated the number one spot in the Test rankings under Ravi Shastri and also made it to the final of the World Test Championship with the 50-over World Cup semi-final in 2019.
Dinesh Karthik heaps praise on Ravi Shastri and the Coaching staff
Dinesh Karthik, while appreciating the head coach and the coaching staff, said that we have achieved many victories in the bilateral series. He wanted people not to forget their achievements instead of counting the ICC trophy. He also praised R Sridhar and Bharat Arun for raising the standards of fielding and bowling of the Indian team.
Dinesh Karthik did not say that we always talk about how Shastri was not able to win the ICC title but we should also speak about how many bilateral series we have won under his leadership. I wish people would remember this set of the coaching staff for everything they have achieved in terms of batting, bowling and fielding.”
Dinesh Karthik Feels Ravi Shastri Has Left Indian Team On A Strong Position
According to Karthik, the pairing of Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri as captain and coach will be remembered for a long time. He said that Shastri has left the India team in a very good position. His combination with Virat has been exceptional. This tournament should not be what the coaches should be used to judge. Shastri has left the Indian team in an incredibly strong position.”
