India head coach Ravi Shastri is one of those persons who are quite popular among people who create memes on social media because of his attitude.

Even, he has revealed it publicly that too many times that he doesn’t hold back when it comes to drinking. And, for this, he has become the prime target of members and a lot of memes have already been going around as well. However, he recently became viral through a meme recently and later has addressed the issue too.

“I would say it’s banter all the way. They do it to have fun, it’s at my expense, but okay, have a laugh yaar. How does it matter? If I drink nimbu paani (lemon water) or I have milk honey, you enjoy your drink yaar, at my expense na, when you post that kind of memes, how many people have a laugh? so many get happy, you enjoy that stuff. As long as the team does well,” said Shastri during a virtual press conference on Sunday.

Team India recently won the four-match test series against England and reached the final of the inaugural World Test Championship (WTC) final. They will take on New Zealand in the final which is scheduled to take place in June this year. However, India head coach Ravi Shastri has opened up how the WTC rule change had taken him aback as well.

“I am sitting at home during Covid-19, right in the month of October-November. You have got more points than any other team in the world. 360 at that time, suddenly, a week later without playing any cricket, there is a rule that comes stating that the points would be decided on the percentage system and go from number one to three. Fine, that’s because of countries not wanting to travel, all acceptable and fine,” Shastri concluded.
