Ravi Shastri Should be Removed as the Head Coach – Chetan Chauhan
Meanwhile, the top-ranked Test team had their best chance to win a series in England. However, Virat Kohli & Co lacked consistency as they lost the series by 4-1 margin.
However, the role of Ravi Shastri has now come under the scanner, and he has been at the receiving end of many criticisms. Latest to join the bandwagon is current Uttar Pradesh sports minister Chetan Chauhan.
“Ravi Shastri should be removed as head coach before the Australia tour,” said Chauhan. “Ravi Shastri is very good cricket commentator and he should be allowed to do so,” he added.
However, what has irked many former cricketers, more than the defeats, is Shastri’s comment during the series. Ravi Shastri admitted that this is the best travelling in the last 15 years. Sunil Gavaskar had refuted Ravi Shastri’s claims and Chetan Chauhan, Gavaskar’s opening partner also echoed similar sentiments.
“I do not agree. In 1980s, the Indian team was the best travelling team in the world,” he added.
Commenting on India’s chances in the ongoing Asia Cup, Chauhan feels the men in blues have a good chance. He also asserted that this side has a perfect blend of experienced and young cricketers.
Chetan Chauhan played 40 Test matches and scored 2,084 runs between 1969 and 1981.
He made his debut in 1969 against New Zealand in Mumbai and played his last Test against the same country in 1981 in Auckland. Besides, Chauhan also played seven one day internationals.
Chauhan is the latest cricketer to demand Shastris ouster after former captain Sourav Ganguly and Virender Sehwag.
