Let’s have a look at four statements by the Indian head coach, that went under criticisms and trolls by Indian fans as well as former cricketers.

1.Kuldeep Yadav as no.1 overseas spinner for India

The left-arm chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav is with the Indian limited-overs squad since 2017. He along with the leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal was the go-through bowler for India with the white ball. While he was in his peak form, he got a chance to play the Sydney Test during India’s previous outing in Australia. There he managed to pick up a five-wicket haul too. With that performance, Ravi Shastri termed the spinner as the no.1 spinner for India overseas.

“Already! He plays overseas Test cricket and he gets five wickets, so he becomes our primary overseas spinner. Going ahead, if we have to play one spinner, he is the one we will pick,” Shastri told. The statement was trolled by fans at that time.

The Indian head coach made this statement when the team had two prominent spinners like Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja, who are serving their best in Tests for India for the last 7,8 years. Meanwhile, after a good performance by Ashwin in the first Test, the statement from Shastri is been trolled again by fans.
