Sunil Gavaskar praised Team India’s Head Coach Ravi Shastri. He said that Shastri has the ability to guide young players in the right direction and instill confidence in them. India was successful in winning two consecutive Test series in Australia as his coach.
Gavaskar further said that while spending 10-15 minutes in a practice session with Shastri, you will understand that he has an amazing ability to instill confidence in young players. This is really incredible. If he (Shastri) believes in the ability and skill of the players, then there is no better person than him in encouraging him. He will scold you, but will tell you what you can do to improve yourself.
