Team India have started have started their preparations in full swing ahead of the highly-anticipated clash against Pakistan in T20 World Cup 2021 on Sunday. Considering the rivalry between the two Asian giants, there will certainly be lot of pressure on players to deliver on the big stage. But one just cannot deny the fact that the coaching staff also comes under lot of scrutiny in such big games.
Ravi Shastri, the head coach of Indian team, is someone who is always in the limelight for some reason or the other. The 59-year-old is towards the end of his tenure as the coach of national team and is looking to guide the Men in Blue towards their first ICC trophy in 8 years. But despite being under so much pressure, he does not look much worried ahead of Indo-Pak clash on October 24.
Funny video of Ravi Shastri goes viral on social media
In a hilarious video doing rounds on social media, the Indian head coach can be seen in his usual candid and carefree habitat, something which he is known for. As Ravi Shastri and Bharat Arun were walking, they could hear voices of someone talking about them which left the former absolutely puzzled.
This is when Bharat Arun unravelled the mystery as he asked Ravi Shastri to look up, which is where the person-in-question was calling him from. He looked like an acquaintance of the 59-year-old as he waved towards him and smiled after finally locating the source of the voice.
He hilariously said, “Kidhar se awaaz aa raha hai, main udhar peeche dekh raha hu” in his usual tone, which is something that is leaving the fans in splits.

Ravi Shastri won’t be under any pressure: Sunil Gavaskar
Reflecting on talks around the Indian head coach that he would probably be under pressure with the arrival of MS Dhoni as mentor, former Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar opined that nothing like this would happen. While talking to Aaj Tak on show ‘Salaam Cricket’, he said, “A mentor (MS Dhoni) coming into the Indian team won’t put this coach (Ravi Shastri) under any pressure, it won’t matter to him much. In fact, this coach will welcome a mentor.”
As the trio of Ravi Shastri, MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli re-unite once again, fans would certainly be hoping for them to lead India to much-awaited T20 World Cup trophy in UAE.
