Ravi Shastri

Legendary Cricket All-Rounder | Coach and Commentator


Ravi Shastri, a brilliant cricketer and the 'Champion of the Champions' in the World Championship of Cricket in 1985 in Australia, is one of the best cricketers to come out of the country. He was of the most prolific all-rounders in the Indian team after Kapil Dev.

His trademark defensive batting style was famously known as the 'Chapati shot'. 

The stroke was a leg-side flick off the pads that became a Shashtri special. Although Ravi Shastri was a defensive batsman, he had the ability to accelerate his innings and improve his strike rate when required.

Ravi is also well-known as a coach and commentator. He debuted as a commentator post-retirement with the 'Word Masters Tournament' in Mumbai in 1995. After a long run as a commentator for various channels, including ESPN Star Sports, he became the official commentator for BCCI. 

He was appointed as the Head Coach of the Indian Cricket team in 2017 by the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC). 

Although he retired young due to a damaging knee injury, his passion for cricket helped him keep going! He has been associated with Indian cricket for decades and continues to be reckoned as a 'Cricket Master'.
