Ravi Shastri, the ex. Indian cricketer and Indian team’s head coach is best known for his on-the-spot-Johnny replies and a person with an aura which rarely anybody can resist is again in limelight, with a yet another but hilarious manner.

Let us begin from where it all started. During India vs. South Africa, 2nd T2OI match in Assam, Guwahati, during the free hit De-Kock smashed a Short pitched delivery towards deep mid-wicket and the player standing over there was none other than, the captain Rohit Sharma, who dropped this catch,even though it wasn’t to be counted as a wicket for India.

Then what, all cameras started rolling at the Field coach, asking so many questions. During the Situation, the former cricketer Murli Karthik, having an eye for detailing captured the incident and posed a hilarious question to the former head coach Ravi Shastri, asking him,

“Every time something happens, (for example) a fielding lapse, we show the fielding coach, or when something is done wrong by the bowler, the bowling coach. Imagine you being the coach, did you know we were showing you when there was something wrong with the team?”

With record of handling such questions in style, Ravi Shastri quickly but hilariously replied saying,

“I was always snoring, I couldn’t be bothered. Television time is good time. I just hoped I wasn’t picking my nose or something of that sort,”


Indeed, it was the best reply we could have ever expected from Ravi Shastri. Shastri was the coach of the Indian cricket team from 2017 and 2021, and during the period particularly in test helped Indian winning two test series in Australia and then against England in five match test series leading by 2-1 but eventually under Rahul Dravid’s leadership was declared draw, when the fifth test match took place early this year.

However, the Indian team consisting of KL Rahul, captain Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav and last not least Dinesh Karthik posted a massive 237 runs for 3 with KL Rahul declared the man of the match. Playing very aggressively, India’s top four batters put up a fantastic game.

 The South African team though they started the game terribly, they started catching up with Team India only to fall short towards the end of the game. Hats off to Quinton de Kock and David Miller of South Africa, the latter who scored over a century for 47 balls and not out. His 106 runs included eight 4’s and 7 sixes but it could not save South Africa.

India won the match by 16 runs, and also the series by 2-1 straight.
