Ravi Shastri: Team India deserve No.1 Test side spot
Ravi Shastri is the Indian head coach under whom the side has attained glorious success in world cricket of late. The side managed to tame Australia Down Under in two successive Test series, thus cementing its place as the number one Test side currently.
The Indian cricket team continues to rule the sport, as it happens to be the number one side in the game's longest format. On Thursday, India retained the number one Test ranking in the annually updated order by the International Cricket Council.
Following the same, Team India head coach Ravi Shastri hailed his boys and praised them for their hard work, besides adding that they had earned it. He was notable of the fact that his side managed to adjust to the changes in the game midway and overcame all the obstacles to still emerge on top.
"This team has shown steely resolve & unwavering focus to be crowned No. 1. It is something the boys have earned fair & square. Rules changed midway, but #TeamIndia overcame every hurdle along the way. My boys played tough cricket in tough times. Super proud of this bindass bunch," Shastri said in a tweet.
India is coming off a terrific performance in the format ever since the introduction of the ICC World Test Championship. Although its 0-2 loss in New Zealand put a threat to its bid for the final, it outplayed Australia Down Under, followed by England at home to seal its spot against New Zealand in Southampton next month.
Shastri has played a pivotal role in the side's success overseas, having helped India win consecutive Test series in Australia. He would have a massive task at hand when India travels to England for the WTC final, followed by the five Tests against the host nation.
