India made history by winning the test series in Australia, by defeating the Aussies depsite numerous obstacles that came their way.
Virat Kohli and his men, guided by Ravi Shastri have achieved the impossible and have proved their mettle. At a press conference, Ravi Shastri was asked about the win.
He said,”I will tell you how satisfying this is for me. World Cup 1983, World Championship 1985…this is as big or even bigger because this is in the truest format of the game, that is Test cricket.”

Team India performs well and earns all respect, Ravi Shastri loses whatever's left by giving stupid remarks series after series. Yes, #TeamIndia has done a great job but how fair is it to demean World Cup heroes of 1983? Does he know the diff b/w this Aus Team & 1983's WI Team? https://t.co/1NfALc9xzq

Clearly Ravi Shastri doesn't think before he speaks! The audacity of this man to dismiss the epic 1983 WC win like that. 😒

I like Shastri's role. He can get drunk on a Monday morning and get away with such remarks.
