Shastri: Not yet time for Dhoni, Yuvraj to quit

No surprise here.

 

"Mumbai: Newly appointed Team India head coach believes that it is not yet time for senior cricketers Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh call curtains on their respective careers as of yet.

Both Yuvraj and Dhoni are in their mid thirties, but have played a crucial role in India’s limited overs sides, ever since Virat Kohli took over as the captain in January, 2016."

When Yuvi is on the field, he literally looks like he is playing a veteran's game. He is kept near the boundary on purpose and yet cant even move quickly enough to stop boundaries. With due respect for his achievements in the past and being a cancer survivor, he should not be humiliated further and gracefully retire. Dhoni can make it if he works really hard for couple of years. His experience will help.

Dhoni does work really hard. That much we must give him. Too bad his hand eye coordination and reflexes have slowed considerably, and no amount of hard work will help restore those.  And that his experience will help is really more a knock on Kohli's ineptness as captain.

 

As for Yuvi, the less said the better. Hard to feel sorry for someone who isn't even putting in the hard work.

Only hope is that Australia send a pacy attack when they tour for the ODI series in November(?). Then there's the series against Saffers in SA. Pray hard that these two series show up the two has-beens for what they are - liabilities.

 

Realistically. these two seasoned players know exactly which injury to fake to avoid these two series.

They'll just blame the Kumble regime, and say that the Shastri-Kohli regime needs time to undo the damage from the past and build their own foundation. Not surprisingly Shastri got a 2 year contract vs Kumble's one year contract

I don't even care now, the day Cheerleader was made coach and Virat with Captain, i expected no youngsters to get into the team. Maybe i should now look for something else to invest my emotions till 2019. I won't care if this team losses to SriLanka next month.

They are not really subtle about it are they? 2 more years to go.  So many youngsters are coming through. Zaheer, Sehwag may come back from retirement.

There are enough actual pictures of Shastri and Virat that you don't need to comparative ones! Like ICF's favorite Shastri-Kohli picture

There is genuine man love between Kohli and Shastri. But I wish they would keep it to their private lives and not let it spill over into their professional lives.

A coach is a mentor to a team. He is a friend and an elder buddy.

 

The BCCI press release explains the duties of new India coach Ravi Shastri

Of course, why not? The boys will continue to play till they stop enjoying cricket. I would suggest drafting Yuvraj re-enter test cricket to rectify his record. Maybe he can come in the place of Pujara.

The captain is the leader and the gladiator on the ground. Any team is always built around the leadership qualities and professionalism of the captain. He is the face of the team. The coach has to provide backroom support."

 

:adore:

During Shastri's last stint this is what he said: "My endeavour is to get Raina back in Test team": Ravi Shastri. Then Raina played a test and thankfully bagged a Pair.

 

So another Raina test comeback on the horizon? Or is it going to be a Yuvi comeback first?

Tbf the actual quotes are completely different from the headline.

 

"2019 is a long way to go. They're two champion cricketers. We will deal with them when time comes,” Shastri said to India Today. “Will spend time with captain and take things forward. I've not spoken to him (Virat Kohli). I will speak to him."

 

Hopefully 'when the time comes' is sooner rather than later
