Former Pakistan skipper Salman Butt said he did not understand the “context and logic” of Monty Panesar’s statements on Virat Kohli, Team India, and Ravi Shastri.
One of the main reasons behind Team India’s success in the recent past has been, and without a shred of a doubt, the partnership and the relationship between skipper Virat Kohli and head coach Ravi Shastri. The player-coach duo has worked together relentlessly to pull the team to the top along with invaluable contributions from the rest of the team. The two have always appeared to be in sync over the years and both have created a winning mentality in the team
But for former England, spinner Monty Panesar, in an interview with India Today, said it is Shastri who has had more influence on Team India than skipper Kohli and said that Team India is more of Shastri than of Kohli.
He said: “If one analyses the performance of India in the past few months, you can see that it is more of Ravi Shastri’s team than Virat Kohli’s. At least that’s what I feel.”
