India captain Virat Kohli took to social media on Thursday to extend birthday wishes to head coach Ravi Shastri.
Wishes have been pouring in for Ravi Shastri who turned 58 on Wednesday. Shastri, unlike the last few years, has been spending his special day at his home in Alibaug away from competitive cricket which remains suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Many seem confident but only few are brave. Happy birthday Ravi bhai. God Bless #throwback,” Virat Kohli wrote on Twitter.
While Shastri is helping the Virat Kohli-led Indian side achieve new milestones in international cricket, he has also done incredibly well for the Indian team as a player, both with the bat and the ball. Shastri represented the India national cricket team as a player between 1981 and 1992 in both Tests and ODIs.
Although he started his career as a left arm spin bowler, only to transform into a batting all-rounder. In a career spanning over 12 years, Shastri scored 3,830 runs in Test matches and claimed 151 wickets.
His major achievement as a player came when he helped Team India clinch Benson & Hedges World Championship of Cricket in 1985. Shastri finished with fifties in the last three matches of the tournament and forged a deadly partnership with Sivaramakrishnan. Both claimed 18 wickets between them in five matches.

A police officer said that the accused had organised betting during an IPL match between Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals on Monday night.
The officer added that Santhosh used to organise the betting racket after collecting data from Lotusbook247.com, Kingexchange.com and playwin99.com.
The official said these websites provide data in various forms such as win-loss ratio, balls-runs ratio, and death over bowling ratio etc by individual bowlers of a team.
“Bookies generally use these sites to organise their betting,” he said.
