Ravi Shastri recalls the reasons for India’s disappointing T20 WC campaign

Former Team India head coach Ravi Shastri, recalling India’s trip to the T20 World Cup on a Star Sports show, said the team’s “shy and cautious” approach cost them to qualify for the tournament. “Pakistan played well that day and we were shy against New Zealand. We were very shy. It showed in the game. We were careful instead of aiming at the carotid artery. You don’t mind losing as long as you are Throwing blows. ” But when you’re shy and careful, it hurts more. And if you lose too early in a tournament like this, you’re in trouble, “said Shastri on the brave and valiant ‘The Ravi Shastri Way’ show.

Previously, when speaking with Republic Media Network Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami about Team India’s early retirement from the T20 World Cup, Shastri had similar reasons, saying the team lacked the “daring” it took to keep up to win the game against Kiwi that day.

Ravi Shastri remembers the “greatest game of chance” as a cricket trainer

Recalling India’s historic 2019 Test series win against Australia, Ravi Shastri said he had to take a risk and would describe it as his “greatest risk” as coach of Team India. “Yes, we lost in Perth where the wicket matched their bowling and they pounded us. Virat played a stellar inning, one of the big hundreds you are about to see. And then came Melbourne … I think Jadeja had come back from an injury, Ash was injured. So we had to completely choose another side. 1: 1 in the series, that was the biggest risk for me during my tenure as a coach. Our opening players were struggling so we said that by doing another test they would put tremendous pressure and give the opponent the upper hand so we decided to go in with 2 new players. Mayank Agarwal… you know, he had just landed 3 days ago and I told him you were going to play. Just don’t think it’s Australia and think it’s a different game and you are wearing that shape. And Hanuma opened up and did a very good job. He may not have the volume of runs, but as an opening batter you know how tough this session can be. He roughed it out there, looked through the new ball. Quiet is history. ”He said.
