If not coach, comment is free Ravi Shastri

Thu, Jun 30, 2016, 11:00 AM
Former India Captain Ravi Shastri is becoming bitter these days having seen the best of both the worlds -- in and off the cricket field. The denial of extension for him as Indian cricketing coach has cooked his goose.

Ravi Shahstri was singled out by former India Captian Mohammad Azharuddin and shown in his biographical film as a two-timing playboy. In the wake of it, the denial of coachship is simply too much for him.

So he is taking out his anger on the advisory committee appointed by the Board of Control for Cricket in India, of which Saurav Ganguly is a member.

Ravi asked what has Ganugly against me? Then he went on to charge that Ganguly was not present when he was interviewed by the Advisory Committee, which was `disrespectful.'

Ganguly replied: "I just feel his (Shastri) comments are very personal. If Ravi shastri feels that Saurav Ganguly was responsible for his not being the India coach, he is living in a fool's world."

The new India coach appointed by the committee Anil Kumble already remarked `Coach's job is not permanent.'

One has to acknowledge the deep interest Ravi Shastri has for cricket. There is more to cricket than being a coach, the fat salary and benefits apart. There is cricket commentary in which Ravi is too good. If not coach, comment is free.
