    To hell with the nets!: 

    "To hell with the nets," was what Ravi Shastri said after India's memorable 31-run win in the opening Test against Australia. The coach of the Indian cricket team was stressing the fact that the players needed to rest in order come out prepared for the upcoming Perth Test.

    Knowing that the fast bowlers will have a crucial role to play, Ravi Shastri hinted at ditching net practice ahead of the clash. "They have to rest up, to hell with the nets. You just come there, mark your attendance and get away to the hotel. We know the Perth track is quick, it's a drop in surface, there will be something there for the fast bowlers."

    The current Indian Test team is the best Indian team in the last 15 years: 

    After facing defeat against England in the England vs India Test series, Ravi Shastri said in the Indian team was the best Indian side in the last 15 years. The statement was met by a backlash and Sunil Gavaskar retorted by saying, "What I can say is that teams in 1980s have won in England and West Indies. Rahul Dravid also won series in West Indies in 2005, in England in 2007 and captained when India beat South Africa for the first time (in South Africa). "Dravid gets very little credit for his leadership and his team's wins. There have been teams who have won overseas."

    He flashes and flashes hard: 

    Ravi Shastri was once again at his wittiest best while making a comment on Virat Kohli's batting.
