Ravi Shastri’s tenure as the Indian head coach has come to an end with the T20 World cup 2021 campaign and he finished off with a brilliant motivating dressing room speech. Ravi Shastri might have not won ICC tournaments for India but he certainly has made a big statement with a number of bilateral series wins in limited-overs cricket and in the longer formats around the globe.
Ravi Shastri took over as the Indian head coach after the Champions Trophy final defeat in 2017 and since then India has strengthened their bowling attacks for the away tours. The fielding standards have also gone up and the Indian side has individuals who are peaking at the right time.
