Southampton: India head coach Ravi Shastri is facing a tough time currently after his team’s 60-run loss to England in the fourth Test here as Virat Kohli and co eventually lost the series 3-1.

While Twitterati has urged him to step down as the coach of the Indian cricket team, former India opener Virender Sehwag too hit out at the 56-year-old Shastri.

 

"Best travelling teams are made by performances on the ground and not by sitting in the dressing rooms and talking about it. One can talk whatever they want to talk about but unless the bat does the talking, they can never become the best travelling team," Sehwag said to IndiaTV.

Captain Kohli has aggregated 544 runs from four Tests so far, scoring three fifties and two hundreds. He scored knocks of 97 runs and 103 runs in Nottingham during India’s successful third Test as they beat the hosts by 203 runs.

The visitors will now play for pride when the two teams faceoff in London for the final Test match as they conclude the long tour.
