Ravi Shastri, in fact, went on to bill COVID-19 disease as nothing more than a ‘flu’. Team India would have won the fifth Test against England at Manchester last year if he was allowed to be in the dressing after six days, says Shastri.

Dravid had not travelled with the Indian ODI team for the Zimbabwe tour and VVS Laxman had taken over the coaching duties. Team India will be led by Rohit Sharma, who will be back in charge after missing the Zimbabwe ODI series. Dravid, along with batting coach Vikram Rathour and bowling coach Paras Mhambrey, had been given rest for the Zimbabwe ODI series.
There was obviously some logic in trying Suryakumar as opener as India prepares for the T20 World Cup 2022 set to take place in Australia later this year but fans did not like the experiment. Dravid and Co went from getting Rishabh Pant to open in England to straightaway letting Suryakumar open in West Indies.
