    Ravi Shastri’s comment did not go down well with the fans who questioned why the Indian coach was comparing different formats of cricket. Some also pointed out that the current Australian team was “weak” when compared to the West Indies team against which India won the World Cup in 1983.

    “I will tell you how satisfying it is for me. World Cup 1983, World Championship of Cricket 1985 – this is as big, or even bigger because it is in the truest (Test) format of the game. It’s Test cricket, which is meant to be the toughest,” Shastri said (Source: AP)
    Speaking about the victory in Australia, Shastri said, “I will tell you how satisfying it is for me. World Cup 1983, World Championship of Cricket 1985 – this is as big, or even bigger because it is in the truest (Test) format of the game. It’s Test cricket, which is meant to be the toughest.” He also tweeted calling the previous wins as “big” and the current test series win as “as big if not biggest.”
    Shashtri’s comments did not go well with people and this is how they responded.
