“Not a great Indian cricket team, this will go down as one of the great teams that have played the game over the last 5-6 years. Because the results are there to be seen. Yes, we didn’t have a great tournament, we could have won 1-2 ICC tournaments that didn’t happen but that is sports, you will get another chance. You will be wiser and more experienced when the next opportunity comes,” Shastri added.

“For me, the most important thing in life is not about what you accomplish, it is what you overcome. So what you have gone through in the last two years will covid, the hurdles that come on the way, the write-offs that happen, everything and you go through all that and become stronger in the mind and tougher and ready to play the game at the highest level and compete and that is the best thing I like about this Indian cricket team,” Ravi Shastri concluded.
