Dinesh Karthik is going to prove to be an important player for Team India in the Asia Cup and T20 World Cup. However, Dinesh Karthik has commented about former coach Ravi Shastri before the start of the Asia Cup. Dinesh Karthik says that as a coach, Ravi Shastri could not tolerate the realness of the players.
The pair of Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri has led Team India to victory in many matches. However, on many occasions, both of them were criticized because they do not back their players in bad times. Dinesh Karthik said, “Shastri’s approach was different. He could not tolerate those players who used to bat differently in net practice and bat differently in the match.
The wicket-keeper batsman further said, “Shastri did not support this. He knew what he wanted from the team. But he could not stand the reality. He used to inspire people to move forward.
Dinesh Karthik has made a comeback
However, Ravi Shastri’s tenure as coach has been very successful. Under Ravi Shastri’s coach, Team India managed to beat Australia twice in the Test series on the same soil. However, Ravi Shastri’s tenure as coach was completed after last year’s T20 World Cup. Ravi Shastri is now back in his old commentary role.
On the other hand, talking about Dinesh Karthik, he was dropped from Team India after his poor performance in the 2019 World Cup under the coach of Ravi Shastri. But Karthik performed amazingly in IPL this year. Dinesh Karthik managed to return to Team India after a long gap of three years and is now in the role of a finisher.
