Ravishankar Jayadritha Shastri is a former Indian cricketer. He was an all-rounder who batted right�handed and bowled left arm spin. His international career started when he was 18 years old and lasted for 12 years. He started his career purely as a bowler but gradually became more of a batsman who could bowl. As a batsman, he was essentially defensive with the "chapati shot"(a flick off the pads) being his trademark shot, but could raise his strike rate when required. Due to his above-average height (he stood 6\' 3\" tall) and an upright stance, he had a limited number of shots against fast bowling, but was able to put the lofted shot to good use against spin bowling. Shastri played either as an opening batsmen or in the middle order. The highlight of his career was when he was elected the Champion of Champions in the World Championship of Cricket in Australia
