India’s supremacy in both 50-over and red-ball cricket isn’t a new phenomenon. The men in blue have found staggering consistency which has helped them earn the top and second spot in Tests and ODIs respectively. However, the shortest format of the game seems to need a few fixes and coach Ravi Shastri has no hesitation in accepting it.
After being reappointed as the head coach of India, the 57-year old shared his plans on revamping India’s T20I side. While assessing India’s performance in the 20-over cricket, Ravi added that one-day cricket and T20Is hold different identities, so it would be unwise to see them through the lens of white-ball cricket.
For this reason, he sees a need of changing perspective. With the next two years scheduled to have two T20 World Cup events, it is only natural to focus on the format. Moreover, the Mumbai born believes that India has enough talent to rule the cricketing world in all the three forms of the game.
