Indian cricket team did not have the greatest 5-match Test series against England as they couldn’t make it and lost the series 3-1 with one match remaining. Virat Kohli & Co couldn’t continue their winning streak in the Test format as the hosts dominated in the first two Test matches. However, team India fought back and won the third Test to remain the hopes of the series.
In the fourth Test, the visitors again can’t face the English bowlers and lost the match and the series. Eventually, team India’s performance in the series has been highly criticized. As soon as the team lost the 4th Test and the series to England, everyone started talking about the strategies and loopholes that need to be filled.

However, the India head coach Ravi Shastri has come ahead in the defense of the team very strongly, so much so that he called it the strongest team in the last 15-20 years.
Ravi said that the current Indian team put up a good show overseas than any Indian team in the last 15-20 years. He also said, “the current team has won nine matches overseas besides three series and that’s something never achieved before by any team.” This statement did not go well with Twitterati who has been trolling him badly.
Coach is protecting him self…I tell u fact that without Ravi shastri team can perform better…you are a coach by playing politics… there are more better options as a coach.

We need a tough taskmaster like Kumble and Dravid or a leader like Ganguly who have the guts to take the responsibility and give the team perfect motivation to win abroad. Right now Ravi Shastri is just there to satisfy the over inflated egos of the seniors in the team.

Someone please ask Ravi shastri what his contribution is to this Indian team other than being an overconfident dooshbag in his media appearances.India made some huge tactical errors in this game. Not playing sweep against Moeen. Ashwin bowling far quicker than he should have.

Ravi Shastri in PC: "Last three years, we won nine matches overseas and three series. I can’t see any other Indian team in the last 15-20 years who’ve had that kind of run in such a short time. And you’ve had some great players in those series."
Those series? Vs WI, SL & SL.

The series could easily have been 3-1 in India's favour – Ravi Shastri
