The present Director of the Indian team, Ravi Shastri said that he agrees with Rahul Dravid’s views on the fact that too many bilateral ODI and T20 series will not be good for the team. He also pointed out that much more emphasis should be given on the World Cup.

He further stated that too much bilateral series reduce the thrill and excitement of the game and also the quality of cricket decrease due to that.

He also said 5-match ODI series is totally unwanted and it can be reduced. This is even affecting the domestic tournaments of the country and domestic tournaments should be given much more importance. 

He also criticized about the 4 or 5-match test series. He said that interest in such a long series just flickers away after 2-3matches. Shastri also said that if interest in the game has to be sustained then the amount of cricket should be reduced, especially the unwanted bilateral series shall be cut-off from the schedule.

He also pointed of the fact that bowlers win matches for the team ahead of the batsmen. The first line bowlers also get tired because of too much cricket which often leads to serious injuries for them.

Presently, India will play West Indies in a 5-match ODI series which starts from tomorrow. India will look it as a kind of preparation for the World Cup to be held early next year. Also, the performance of various players like Virat Kohli will be monitored keenly in the series. This series will be valuable for the selectors in selecting the initial squad for the World Cup to be held next year.

India team has done quite will since Ravi Shastri has been appointed as the director of the team. They have thrashed England in the last ODI series by 3-1.
