After that, the attention will switch to the ODI World Cup, where India will be the host of the tournament later this year. The Indian team last won an ICC event in 2013 when they lifted the Champions Trophy in England. Since then, India has had to seal an ICC trophy despite reaching the business end of tournaments in the past few years. However, Shastri reckons it’s only a matter of time before they win a title.

Ravi Shastri opined, “I think India are due. They have been consistent – they reached finals, semi-finals on a regular basis. Look at Sachin Tendulkar. He had to play six World Cups to win one ICC trophy. 6 World Cups means 24 years. And on his last World Cup, he won. Look at Lionel Messi. Classic example that is. I mean how long he has been playing. And when he started winning, he won the Copa America, and the the World Cup and scored in the final as well. So you have to wait.”
