Ravi Shastri had been doing an incredible job in the commentary box before becoming the head coach of Team India. Skipper MS Dhoni’s finishing the 2011 World Cup final with a six that ended India’s 28-year drought for a World Cup trophy still remains to be one of the iconic moments in India’s cricketing history. The memorable moment was also called by Ravi Shastri back in the day when he was the commentator. Now, as his stint as the head of Team India ended, he has hinted that he might return to cricket commentary.

Under Shastri, India played the last match of the T20 World Cup against Namibia. Now, he outlined his future plans moving forward. Talking to media after India’s win against Namibia, Shastri reflected on his time with the team and while doing so, dropped hints about his return to the commentary box.

He said that he could be returning to the commentary role for the pending fifth Test against England which was rescheduled to next year due to a COVID-19 outbreak in India’s camp in September.

Here is what he said: “I mean, if you look at — if you want the real highlights, nothing beats Australia. England, we’re up in the series. It will be the longest time we’ll be up in the series until next year. I might be commentating on that game for all you know, but I’ll keep that one area. It feels good.”
