It was on Friday (January 19, 2019) when team India witnessed a historic win against Australia at the third ODI encounter in Melbourne. Our men in blue beat the Aussies by 7 wickets amidst a super-hit partnership of MS Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav and damn, the ground broke into hysteria! Well, after a much-deserved win, while our players must be gearing up for the upcoming India VS New Zealand ODI match, we spotted a stress-free Ravi Shastri, not observing rather enjoying a match amidst the audience at a stadium in Australia. Well, the only difference being, it was a Tennis match.
The Indian cricket team coach took to his Instagram and shared a relaxed picture of him enjoying the on-going Australian open tennis match. The gentlemen in his caption made sure to highlight that he felt great to watch a ‘tennis’ match with ‘zero’ pressure. Unlike his regular Indian coach jersey, Shastri was dressed up in a quirky beach themed t-shirt along with a hat and glasses, well, he sure seemed to have fun. He was accompanied with the fielding coach of the Indian cricket team, R Sridhar.

Shastri was recently in the news for his befitting response for the ‘agenda-driven’ criticism that shall come towards the Indian team or his way. Shastri, in his interview to The Daily Telegraph, said, “You expect it. I am one of those that if it is constructive, then fine. If I find it is agenda-driven, I don’t care who the individual is, then I will throw a punch back straightaway. I mean it. I don’t care if he is a legend or a normal person. If I feel I have to punch back I will.”
