“Crap, Planted Stories”: Ravi Shastri Lifts Lid On Conspiracy Against Hardik Pandya


Former India coach Ravi Shastri believes that the fans' backlash towards Hardik Pandya could have been avoided if Mumbai Indians had shown “clarity in communication” while announcing him as captain. Shastri also advised Pandya to remain calm and weather the storm with a strong performance. “It's not the Indian cricket team that's playing. It's franchise cricket. They're paid top dollar. They're the owners. It's their right to decide who they want to be the captain. Well, that's where I think it should go.” Could have been handled better, with more clarity in communication, Shastri said on Star Sports' 'Cricket Live Show'.

“If you want to make Hardik Pandya the captain, then say we are looking at the future. We are looking to build. Rohit has done a fantastic job, as everyone knows, and we want him to continue in the next three years.” Help Hardik. The team moves forward.

“At the end of the day, there's nothing more important than results. You win matches, and things will change. There's a lot of bullshit out there too, you know, and some of the stories are just made up. A lot of it is just my name. Including in the name of other people,” he further said.

“That communication, that clarity should have come forward a little bit more so that all this would have ended. So it's not a case of you saying, 'No, we don't want Rohit Sharma,' or 'He was treated badly,' and Whatever things are coming out on social media,” he said.

Shastri is hopeful that the tables will turn once Mumbai Indians start winning. The team is currently facing defeat in three consecutive matches.

“So, my advice to Hardik would be to stay calm, be patient, ignore and just focus on your game. Keep putting in some performances. Mumbai Indians are a great team. If they get into rhythm, they can get three or four If we win consecutive matches, everything will calm down,” he said.
