Indian Team head coach Ravi Shastri has always been in the spotlight due to his lavish lifestyle and intaking of alcohol in open. There were rumors that Ravi Shastri will be removed from the position of the coach after India’s unsuccessful stint in World Cup 2019, but Kapil Dev-led Cricket Advisory Committee has shown some faith over him and has extended his tenure for next two years.

Earlier this year, under Ravi Shastri’s guidance, India finished the drought of 71 years and won their first series in Australia after 10 subsequent tours. It is one of biggest moments that India cherished. Shastri has played his role as coach very significantly but it will be very important to see how he performs in the future.

Shastri has always been a star among memes creators, Twitter went mad when a photograph of him with a beer came across after India won their Melbourne Test and Indian fans started talking about him being unprofessional when he is on national duty and now in a chat show he revealed that he enjoys his alcohol.

Recently, on the occasion of Navaratri, a major festival in India, Ravi Shastri tweeted, “On the auspicious occasion of #Navratri, let us celebrate Maa Durga and all the goodness that she represents. A very happy Navratri to you and your loved ones #happynavratri”

Here is Ravi Shastri’s tweet:

But in return, Twitter looked in no mood to set Shastri free from getting trolled and everyone started mocking the coach in numerous ways over his tweet.

In July 2017, Ravi Shastri was appointed as the head coach of India who replaced the Indian spin legend, Anil Kumble. Shastri played in 80 Tests and 150 ODIs for India and got more than 6000 international runs and 250 wickets across all the formats.

Even before we know the likes of Herschelle Gibbs and Yuvraj Singh, he had become famous for smashing six sixes in an over. In 1985 Ravi Shastri went for 6 sixes against Baroda in a first-class match and became the second player to hit after Garry Sobers in 1965. In the same innings, he made the record of making the fastest double ton with respect to time that came in just 113 minutes.
