Former India opener Gautam Gambhir will not be proud of Ravi Shastri’s remarks through which he had termed the Virat Kohli-led aspect finest on the planet.
Shastri’s remarks didn’t go down properly with Gambhir saying, we can’t hear this sort of assertion from newly-appointed coach Rahul Dravid.
Shastri’s tenure as head coach ended after India’s forgetful marketing campaign within the recently-concluded ICC Men’s T20 World Cup. One of probably the most celebrated batsmen and legendary cricketer Dravid was appointed as the pinnacle coach of Team India.
Shastri had famously in contrast Team India’s Test sequence win in Australia with the 1983 World Cup title triumph.
Gambhir stated it’s high quality if this assertion got here from others, not from the outgoing coach.
“It’s really a pity that this statement came from him; you will never hear this kind of statement from Dravid. That’s the basic difference between Dravid and others,” Gambhir advised Times Now Navbharat.
“When you win, let others talk about it. You won in Australia, that’s a big achievement no doubt. You won in England, performed well, no doubt. But let others praise you. You won’t hear such statements from Rahul Dravid. Whether India play good or bad, his statements will always remain balanced. Moreover, it will reflect on other players,” stated the previous Indian opener.
Welcoming the appointment of Dravid after Shastri’s departure Gambhir stated, “The one thing I found surprising is that when you play well, you don’t usually boast about it. It’s fine if others talk about it; when we won the 2011 World Cup, no one gave statements saying that this team is the best in the world, let alone country.”
Shastri’s reign as head coach noticed India obtain no.1 rating in Tests and a number of abroad Test sequence victories in Australia, in addition to wins in England and South Africa.
