India have done well since Ravi Shastri was appointed as the head coach of the team. Apart from winning in Australia twice, they played exceptionally well in England as well. Recently, Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) newly-appointed chairman Ramiz Raja has claimed that India under Ravi Shastri have copied good strategies from the Pakistan team of the past.
Speaking to ARY Sports, Raja said that Team India head coach Shastri was always impressed with Pakistan. He believes Virat & Co. have followed all the good strategies of the yesteryear Pakistan team for achieving success across formats.
“Of late, India have adopted all good strategies of Pakistan team. And this was bound to happen as India’s head coach Ravi Shastri was always impressed with Pakistan. Ours was a very hard-working and dedicated lot, we used to take players who were less talented to 100%, and we refused to give up. They have changed their model on similar lines, worked a lot on skill, the level of their first-class cricket has significantly improved, which has connected all the dots for them. We have to work on a lot of things in the next 3-4 years to reach there,” Raja stated.
Shastri will not extend the contract with Team India after the T20 World Cup.
