Team India coach, Ravi Shastri is thoroughly disappointed. He eventually faces wrath as visitors lost the series against England owing to a scoreline of 4-1. It resulted in a second consecutive away defeat for the world’s top-ranked Test side with the culmination of The Oval Test.

However, India lost to South Africa earlier in this year following the latest loss against England which put pressure on the chief coach, Shastri.

India will face Australia in November before much-awaited next year’s World Cup 2019. Meanwhile, they will also play the Asia Cup 2018 before taking on the Windies.

Moreover, commentator Harsha Bhogle said that India had cherished their moments, but the scorecard is saying 4-1. They were not as good as should have been. They ranked at the top of the table. Bhogle also added that this is the second overseas disappointments in a row as they lost the first one against South Africa.

“India had their moments. But the scorecards say 4-1. And India weren’t as good as they should have been. This is two overseas disappointments in a row now,” said Bhogle.

Shastri said that India won nine overseas matches and three series in the last three years.

Moreover, he can’t see any other Indian team in the last 15-20 years nearing the results. Shastri also wants his team to maintain the same pace as they were doing before.

“If you look at the last three years, we have won nine-match overseas and three series. I can’t see any other Indian team in the last 15-20 years that has had the same run in such as a short time,” Shastri said.

Moreover, former Indian cricketer, Virender Sehwag said that the best travelling teams are decided on their performance on the ground.

“The best travelling teams are made by performances on the ground. And not by sitting in the dressing room and talking about it,” Sehwag added.

However, India showed some poor performance in the tour against England and they would try to rectify their mistakes.

Well, for Asia Cup 2018, Ravi Shastri is all set to guide the Men in Blue in the United Arab Emirates (UAE)
