New Delhi: The Test series between India and Australia is starting from 9 February. The battle between the two teams on the cricket field is very interesting. When both the teams came face to face last time, Team India had a historic victory. An anecdote has also come to light from this series, where the Indian cricketer lied to former head coach Ravi Shastri.
Former Indian team fielding coach RK Sridhar has mentioned an anecdote in his book. R Sridhar has said that everyone remembers Gaba's battle in the 2-1 series win against Australia, but the partnership between Hanuma Vihari and Ravichandran Ashwin did wonders in the third Test which was a draw. Actually, it so happened that Team India had to save the match and these two batsmen were left. Then Team India's head coach Ravi Shastri called Shardul Thakur, who was not playing in that match. He told Shardul to tell Hanuma Vihari and Ravichandran Ashwin that Vihari will play fast bowlers, Ashwin will play spin, and will not take any single.
Shardul Thakur said OK to Ravi Shastri here, but when he reached Vihari-Ashwin, he said that many things have been said from the inside, but both of you are doing better and just keep playing on your own terms. R Sridhar said in his book that Shardul had taken the right decision then which had the right effect on the batsmen. Let us tell you that in the last series between India and Australia, Team India won 2-1. India was bowled out for just 36 runs in the first match, after which Team India came back and won the series.
