Former Team India head coach Ravi Shastri said that he will happily support the national team in the future until he can watch the sport. Shastri’s tenure as the head coach ended with a disappointing outing in the T20 World Cup.

Shastri’s contract ran out following the conclusion of India’s campaign, with the Men in Blue being knocked out in the group stages. He will be replaced by Rahul Dravid, who was officially appointed by BCCI as the new head coach.

Now that the penny has dropped… thank you so much for making me part of this incredible journey. Memories that I will cherish and a team that I will continue to back till the time I’m able to watch the sport #TeamIndia @imVkohli @ImRo45 @ajinkyarahane88,” Shastri wrote on his Twitter account.

“No regrets” – Ravi Shastri on his tenure as the head coach

Under Ravi Shastri, the Indian team achieved new heights in Tests. They defeated Australia in Australia twice and currently lead England by a 2-1 margin. However, one blemish in an otherwise successful career is the fact that the team failed to win an ICC trophy.

No regrets, when you’ve had a journey over five years the way I have had and the team has had and when they have been overachievers. The highs, it has to be Australia, just cannot take that away. Back-to-back wins in Australia after almost 70 years is something that was unimaginable. Makes it extremely special. And of course, leading the series in England,” Shastri added.

Shastri’s record as the head coach is quite good – 25 wins in 43 Tests, 51 wins in 76 ODIs, and 43 wins in 65 T20Is.
