Recently Indian Head coach Ravi Shastri in an interview with Gaurav Kapur on the Youtube interview series Breakfast with Champions disclosed the Ladies’ man of Indian cricket.
Ravi Shastri is truly the destiny’s child. He enjoyed a prolific career as an all-rounder in the Indian national team. Starting humbly as lower order batsman, Shastri slowly graduated to become an opener. After his playing career was offer, he had a very successful stint as a broadcaster.
Now-a-days, Shastri is seen in his new avatar of the Head Coach. Recently, in an interview with Gaurav Kapur on the Youtube interview series Breakfast with Champions, Shastri spilled some beans about the Indian cricketers of his generation and the current ones.
Shastri was candid about his romantic side and did not shy away from the fact that he was Ladies’man in his younger days. Shastri said that he believed in the mantra ‘play hard and party harder’. Without mincing words, Shastri said, “When God has given you things to use, you use it. It’s important you make the most of the tools you have at disposal.
“I have never cared about what people think. That’s the kind of a person I am. My philosophy of life is very simple. It’s not important for anyone to graduate too quickly, if your shoe size is 10, wear a 10, not an 11 or 12,” current Head coach and the former all-rounder said.
Few days back on Vikram Sathaye’s show What the Duck season 3, when Kumar Sangakkara was asked who the Ladies ’ man in cricket is, he did not hesitate to name Indian skipper Virat Kohli. “Virat Kohli, yes right now, he is the Ladies’ man.” Veteran off-spinner Muttiah Muralitharan who was also a guest in the show agreed with Sangakkara as well.
