Former cricketer Ravi Shastri has made a comeback in the commentary box after his stint with the Indian team as a Head coach ended. He is part of the English commentary panel along with Nasser Hussain, Ian Ward, Michael Atherton, Kumar Sangakkara, Mark Butcher, and Kevin Pietersen for the fifth Test match between England and India. On Sunday, Nasser Hussain poked fun at the former India cricketer over his Twitter post.
Recently, Ravi Shastri posted a picture on this Twitter profile with his co-commentators. However, Nasser Hussain was missing from the photo. This was pointed out by the other commentators to Nasser. The former England skipper reacted by saying that he has been canceled from Shastri’s life.
“I have been cropped out of Ravi Shastri’s life,” said Nasser. He also pointed out that Ravi Shastri tagged everyone except him in the post. Former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen, who was in the commentary box, burst into laughter hearing Nasser’s comment.
