Coach Ravi Shastri Indulges In 'Banter' On Twitter
The Indian cricket team's landslide win over England in the third Test match seems to have allowed coach Ravi Shastri to indulge in humor on Twitter. In a rare reply to a tweet, Shastri on Saturday wrote: "love the banter" on his handle.
The tweet has a reference to India's 10-wicket win over England in the third Test in Ahmedabad, Gujarat - a 'dry' state where liquor is prohibited. The win was registered inside two days of the five-day match, allowing players three days to practice and indulge in other activities.
It all started with a meme on social media. It carried a smiling photo of Shastri with these words attributed to the former India captain: "you thought I'd stay in a dry state for 5 days?" The reference was to the prohibition in Gujarat.
But whoever made the meme probably forgot that the next Test match will also be played in Ahmedabad, starting on March 4, so Shastri would have to stay put in the bio-bubble in the city.
