However, as soon as the tweet was made public, the network members expressed their displeasure that they were surprised that former Indian cricketer Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri did not recognize the role of creating a setup that would win many tests abroad.
“Don’t degrade Ravi Shastri hasn’t made a profit at home since 2013, neither Dravid nor Rohit have done anything new,” one fan tweeted.
