Indian coach named Kuldeep Yadav as the team's number one spinner
Shastri also praised Pujara, hero of victory in the Australian series
Wellington. Coach Ravi Shastri has compared Captain Virat Kohli to the legends of his time like Sir Vivian Richards and Imran Khan. Together, Kuldeep Yadav was named the number one spinner of the team. In a conversation with cricket website Cricbuzz, Shastri said, "I have seen that great player closely. Virat is one of the players who knows how to answer. He wants to dominate and play. There is no player committed to him like that. '
Virat-like Leader meeting fate: Indian coach
He said, 'I believe the Indian team is lucky because he has a Virat-like leader. He reminds me of Imran Khan in this case. He sets the example and standard. He defines them in their own way and tells them to come forward and move forward. "Shastri also believes that as a captain Virat will improve himself.
Ashwin's poor form given
Referring to Ravichandran Ashwin's poor form, Shastri said, 'Everyone has time. Now Kuldeep will be our number one spinner abroad. Kuldeep took five wickets in the rain-affected Sydney Test. Most batsmen in Australia failed to understand their balls. "They gave example of taking Chinnaman spinner Kuldeep's 5 wickets in the Sydney Test against Australia. He said, "Kuldeep has already played Test cricket abroad and has taken five wickets. In such a situation, he will be our main spinner. "
Pujara's lack of technique: Shastri
Shastri also praised Cheteshwar Pujara, who was the hero of the Test series in Australia. However, Pujara did not find a place in the last XI in the first Test played in Birmingham in England. On this, Shastri said, 'There was no shortage in his technique, but he changed the way he stood on the crease. It got the benefit of them. They did not have a technical problem. This was due to the way they stood on their crease. It was not a big deal, it was not a big deal. I thought it could be corrected. '
