Ravi Shastri had everything to cheer about after the recently concluded series against West Indies where India completed a whitewash over the Caribbeans. Team India won the T20I series 3-0, ODI series 2-0 (one washed away due to rain) and Test series 2-0. Meanwhile, during the course of the tour, Ravi Shastri was also retained as the head coach of Team India and will continue the role till the end of ICC World T20 2021 which will be held in India. Ravi Shastri got the better of strong contenders like Mike Hesson, Tom Moody and others to retain his position. Recently, Shastri was saying having a gala time in West Indies. The former all-rounder had posed for a picture with the legendary Sir Vivian Richards and described Richards as the 'King of Antigua'. The ex-cricketer had then paid a visit to the Bob Marley museum where he had not only become a presenter but had also impressed one and all with his Caribbean accent. Now, after Team India's ICC World Test Championship campaign has got off to a flier, the head coach decided to enjoy the sunny day at Jamaica.
Taking to the micro-blogging site, Ravi Shastri wrote that it was sunny in Jamaica and that the punch in his left hand tasted divine.

Nonetheless, the fans showed no remorse in making fun of the Team India head coach and they made the most of it to troll him brutally.
Under Shastri, India have won over 70% of their matches. These victories include whitewashing Sri Lanka in their own backyard in Tests, ODI's and T20Is in the 2017/18 season, home series win against Australia and New Zealand, limited-overs bilateral series wins against South Africa, Asia Cup 2018, the historic Test series wins against Australia Down Under followed by bilateral ODI series wins against the Aussies and the Kiwis. Away Test series losses against South Africa and England, losing to Australia at home earlier this year and a semi-final exit in World Cup 2019 are something which was witnessed during his tenure.
In the next two years i.e. from the 2019-2021 cycle, Team India will be taking part in two ICC World T20 tournaments apart from the ICC World Test Championship which kicks off from the ongoing West Indies tour. Next year, the International Cricket Council (ICC) will also begin the One-Day Championship.
