Ravi Shastri, the head coach of Team India, is always in the news regardless of his side wins or loses. Whenever the team goes down, his role comes under the scanner and when they win, his gestures are scrutinised. The same has happened after the Melbourne Test as he was seen drinking beer even as the team was entering team hotel on Sunday.

The Indian team bus approached the hotel as the Bharat Army was ready to welcome their team after such a superb performance at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) and in the game which could eventually turn out to be a series clincher. The bus stopped and Shastri was the first to get down who didn’t even look at the fans and went straight in the hotel by having a sip of beer from the bottle which he had in his hand.


The video of the same is going viral at the moment and as usual, the social media has targetted the Indian coach for his gestures off the field.

Not for the first time

This is not the first time when Ravi Shastri is trending on Twitter for his off-field actions. Even after the first Test match in Adelaide, he had used some unwanted words on air while answering a question from Sunil Gavaskar on Sony Networks. “Sach kahu to goti muh mein aa gaye the (To be honest, our balls came in our mouth),” Shastri had said when Gavaskar congratulated him for the fantastic victory in a close game.

During the England tour as well, Shastri’s belly was targetted before one of the Tests and was trolled hilariously by the social media gimmicks. Having said that, the team is doing extremely well under him and the 56-year-old is certainly enjoying his job of guiding some of the talented cricketers in the country.
