Former Indian cricketer Ravi Shastri is widely regarded as one of the greatest cricket commentators in recent memory. While the 58-year-old was a constant feature inside the commentary box particularly in India's matches, the 80-Test veteran has left the aforementioned duty ever since he took up Team India coaching role in 2017. However, it appears that several of his fans are still missing Ravi Shastri’s commentary role as evidenced from their recent posts on social media.

Dream11 IPL 2020: Ravi Shastri praises Anrich Nortje fastest ball, fans want him back for commentary

On Wednesday, October 14, Ravi Shastri took to his social media account to praise South African-based Delhi speedster Anrich Nortje for his role in Delhi’s win over Rajasthan. While he bowled his quota of four overs to end up with figures of 2-33, it was his scorching speed that made a difference to the outcome of the match. In the third over of Rajasthan run-chase, which was bowled by the 26-year-old South African, the right-arm pacer once clocked an eye-grabbing speed of 156.2 kph to Jos Buttler.

Ravi Shastri praised Anrich Nortje's speeds and the overall contest between the burly South African bowler and Rajasthan’s opening batsman Jos Buttler. The Indian head coach referred to the competition as “fire” meeting “fire” which made for “fabulous viewing” for the viewers.
