Birmingham. An Indian cricketer has revealed the reason behind India’s turnaround in the ongoing ODI series in England. The cricketer claimed that it was all a conspiracy by players to keep Ravi Shastri out of commentary box and presentation parties.
“During the test series, a lot of us were distracted since we were constantly betting on which cliché would Ravi Shastri mouth next, in the commentary box. Shikhar was so ecstatic when he correctly predicted Ravi’s ‘that went like a tracer bullet‘, that he dropped a sitter in excitement, and it cost us the match,” the part-time Faking News source from Indian team revealed.
The player further disclosed that it was a joint conspiracy by both Indian and England team to keep Ravi Shastri out of the earshot of players and their families.
“So tortured and pained were the English cricketers listening to Ravi in dressing room, that they even agreed to BCCI’s demand of losing the ODI matches in return of keeping Ravi away,” the insider cum player revealed.
According to the sources, Ravi Shastri was appointed as the Director of the Indian team as part of this deal.
However, Indian captain Dhoni has rejected any conspiracy. Although he accepted benefits of Shastri out of commentary box.
“Well of course the boys are playing well and are concentrating better on the field, all thanks to Srini sir,” he said.
Ravi Shastri could not be reached for a comment but we heard a message from his voice mail that said, “At the end of the day, the game of cricket is the real winner.”
