Shastri brushes aside book launch criticism, says “whole UK is open”

India head coach Ravi Shastri brushed aside the critism of the launch event of his book ‘Star Gazing: The Players The Players in My Life’ in London on September 1. Shastri was tested positive for COVID-19 days after the event along with bowling coach Bharat Arun, fielding coach R Sridhar.

“The whole country [United Kingdom] is open. Anything could have happened from Test One,” said Shastri in an interview to mid-day on Sunday.

Physiotherapist Nitin Patel had to isolate for being his close contacts from the fourth day of the fourth Test played at The Oval.

“It’s been the best summer of cricket England has seen in a long time certainly from an Indian cricket team. It’s Covid times, awesome summer though. The boys were fantastic either side of the Thames,” observed Shastri.

The fifth and final Test between India and England was cancelled after another support staff was tested positive for the virus.

“No team played in Covid times like this Indian team did in Australia and England. Just ask the experts here. Nothing has given me more job satisfaction in the game and I have been around for a bit as you would know,” added Shastri.

Shastri’s next assignment with the Indian team will be the men’s T20 World Cup in the UAE from October 17-Novermber 14.
