Ravi Shastri admits that WTC loss was a big disappointment

1 min read

           Ravi Shastri appears to have eased down weeks after his term as Team India head coach ended.

Shastri’s term as India coach was filled with highs and lows, and he admitted his “greatest disappointment” throughout his tenure.

It should come as no surprise to Indian cricket fans that Shastri’s defeat in the final of the inaugural World Test Championship is his “greatest disappointment.” Shastri claimed that India did not deserve to lose that game and that a draw would have sufficed.

“Losing the World Test Championship final was the most disappointing game of my career since we didn’t deserve to lose that game.” We should have sketched it at the very least. “Being No. 1 for five years is no joke because of the type of cricket we played for five years,” the former India coach stated on Star Sport’s ‘Bold and Brave: Ravi Shastri Way’ broadcast.

Despite New Zealand’s superior adaptation to the circumstances, Shastri believes India had no business losing the game.

“You may take as much as you want about the preparation, the quarantine, the conditions that were there, New Zealand already being in England.” That game was completely out of our hands, and we had no right to lose it. That was, to put it mildly, unsatisfactory.
