Shastri said after bowling in England for 135 points in the second inning after winning the innings and 25 points in the fourth test, “I’m going to dedicate it to the Groundsman.” I think Ashish Bhowmik is a brilliant field worker, he knows his job.

He said, “Who will complain about this land? There was a lot of entertainment on it, both for the teams and for the game. Also, the 3-1 result doesn’t show just how close this series was. Shastri praised the team for reaching the final of the Test World Championship, while last year the ICC changed the qualifying rules.
He said: “ For us to be at the top of the points table in the test world championship is two and a half years of hard work and to be successful in those years is six years of hard work. before that. The players focused on just one series at a time and they weren’t too worried about the World Test Championship as the “goal post” changed every time.
Indian team coach Ravi Shastri said: “We were at the top of the points table and after a few rule changes the percentage point system came when we weren’t even playing. But regardless, even if we got 520 points, we have the right to be at the top of the points table and to play the final.
