The T20 World Cup 2021 in UAE was the last assignment of the former India head coach Ravi Shastri.
In a recent interview with the Times of India, he has shared the experience he had while holding the post.
“There was always a lot of negativities around but luckily, I had no time for all of that. But those who know me well will know what a thick-skinned guy I am for such things to affect me.
“The more I saw people getting jealous of what this team kept achieving, the more I laughed at their insecurities. The more some people wanted this team to fail, the better we did,” he told TOI.
“Later, sometime before we left for England this year, I had made up my mind to move on. What precipitated it was a couple of reasons. First, I was pushing 60 and there were these Supreme Court rules and all. Second, I knew the quarantine and the bio-bubbles won’t go anywhere for another two years. Cricket will be played in isolation and that’s what we’re seeing right now too. So, I said enough. For how long will this carry on,” Ravi Shastri concluded.
