Ravi Shastri Has Two Test Series Wins As Coach in Australia
He recently won his second Test series as coach on Australian soil. He became the first Indian coach to win two Test series down under, a record which is expected to stay in his CV for a long time. He spoke to Star Sports on the famous series win upon his return to India.
Coach Ravi Shastri also revealed how he motivated the Indian side post the drubbing at Adelaide. The Indian coach stated that he told the side to wear the badge of 36 all-out and never forget it when they went ahead during a match. He advised the young side to cash in when they were ahead in the match and never get complacent.

“Just seeing the way he has evolved, you knew that there was an uncut diamond there when I took over in 2014, but just to see him evolve… It takes time, everything doesn’t happen in a hurry,” Shastri said on Star Sports show Cricket Live.
