IND vs NZ 2021: Gautam Gambhir has pinpointed one major difference. Between former head coach Ravi Shastri and Rahul Dravid. Shastri recently completed his hugely successful stint. As the Indian men’s team’s head coach following the culmination of the T20 World Cup. India may have failed to win a major ICC title during his tenure. But the consistency of the team across all three formats. Also, dominance in Test cricket, especially in overseas conditions. And remains a high point on his CV. Navbharat said this during a recent interview with Times Now. Shastri’s legacy was brought up by Gambhir. Shastri’s words in the media were condemned by the 2011 World Cup winner. As well as following India’s Test victories around the world.
IND vs NZ 2021, “The one thing I found surprising is that when you play well, you don’t usually boast about it. It’s fine if others talk about it; when we won the 2011 World Cup, no one gave statements saying that this team is the best in the world, let alone country,” Gautam Gambhir said.
Additionally, under the leadership duo of Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri. The team India rose from no.7 to become the top-ranked Test side in the world. Virat Kohli-led unit held on to the numero uno spot for 42 consecutive months. In addition to sustained dominance at home. They registered back-to-back series wins in Australia. They won two of the four Tests in the five-match series in England. The final Test will be played in Birmingham next summer.
Gautam Gambhir praised Shastri for India’s remarkable progress in Test cricket. He did believe, however, that the former coach should have avoided making such bold statements. Every victory is reported in the media. Shastri referred to the current team as “Kohli’s team.” During the 2018 England tour, the best Indian Test team of all time.
“When you win, let others talk about it. You won in Australia, that’s a big achievement, no doubt. You won in England, performed well, no doubt. But let others praise you. You won’t hear such statements from Rahul Dravid. Whether India plays good or bad, his statements will always remain balanced. Moreover, it will reflect on other players,” said Gambhir.
