Ravi Shastri Talks In An Exclusive Interview:

Ravi Shastri, the Indian Coach, said that “winning a World Title is a passion for India”. For the T20 World Cup in Australia this October, he said that the forthcoming six ODIs against New Zealand and South Africa will act as a platform for his India’s preparation.

In an exclusive interview, Ravi Shastri talked about issues, including the imprint he will leave, arrangements for the T20 World Cup in Australia, team culture and injuries to his players. 

“That toss will be taken from the condition, we will play well no matter of conditions, of opponents and in each nation of the world. That is the thing that our point is and that is the thing that we are pursuing. The World Cup remains a passion for every nation and we will do all to satisfy that desire,” Shastri said ahead of India’s tour to New Zealand.

India will play two Test matches, three ODIs and five T20 Internationals beginning with the T20I series on January 24. In March, an ODI series is to be held against South Africa.

“The word ‘I’ isn’t there in our wordbook. It’s ‘we’. That is what this team relies on. It commends each other’s accomplishments since the group wins,” he added.

When asked if there was a likelihood that the ODIs held for this present year will be in addition to the T20Is, the Indian coach said, “Indeed, I trust it’s particularly potential.”

The 2-1 series win against a full-quality Australian side was a testimony of the Indian team’s “mental power,” which returned firmly in the wake of being defeated in the opening game.

“The Australia series was the verification of mental power and the capacity to play under tension. After the pounding at the Wankhede, to return and play like how we did, justifies a great deal of credit and applaud” added former Indian cricketer.

“It demonstrated mental fortitude and as Virat utilized the word brave, it indicated we are unafraid to play bold cricket and with the plan,” said Shastri.

Team Captain Virat Kohli has as of now said that KL Rahul keeping wickets is an alternative and Shastri supported the view, saying he agrees that the team has got a versatile player of Rahul’s class.

“We love possibilities,” he said.

We are sad about Some Unfortunate Injuries:

Shikhar Dhawan‘s injury disappointed him as the Indian opener has been ruled out of the team which is going for New Zealand tour due to a shoulder injury.

Shastri dismissed gossips that Kedar Jadhav has outlasted his utility as an ODI player even though he is bowling infrequently in international games.

It’s been a long time since Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal starred together in the playing XI in white-ball games. Will, they been seen together?

“We will take that a call. We were playing with different people are suited to different things. We will pass judgment on it toward that path,” said Shastri. 

Shastri said he wasn’t overly bothered about the sort of surfaces New Zealand will provide.
