Indian Cricket Team ended up its Windies tour with a clean sweep by conquering all the three format games. The host was left unanswerable for India’s cricketing dominance in their home. After the series whitewash, Ravi Shastri celebrated in his way as he was one of the extremely delighted ones. Ravi Shastri posted a picture on social media which was later trolled for not carrying a drink alongside him. Eventually, the head coach returned with a new picture and this time with a glass of drink.
The straight forward coach
Reason for Shastri’s cheerfulness was seen because of his two-year extension period as India’s head coach. However, there was a lot of question raised regarding Shastri’s reappointment as head coach. Virat Kohli and some other team members lent their support to the former commentator which was also criticized by many.
Under Ravi Shastri, Team India has performed very well in both overseas and home series. Men in Blue had also topped the points table in the round-robin World Cup tournament. Hence, CoA pannel lead by Kapil Dev did not take much introspection to retain Ravi Shastri as India’s head coach.
Adding another series under his supervision, Shastri seems to be exhilarated with team India’s performance in this tour. The 57-year-old is known for being a big party freak. He has never stepped back whenever an opportunity comes to booze around. He has also been criticized for having such a straight forward attitude but has never shied off having a drink publicly.
After India beat West Indies in its first test in Antigua, Shastri was spotted hanging around in the beach of the island. He posted a picture captioning “Hot hot hot. Time for some juice. Coco Bay Sheer Rocks Beautiful. Antigua.” After his picture went viral on the internet, Shastri was trolled for not having a drink in his hand while clicking the picture.
