Former Team India head coach Ravi Shastri revealed that India can be optimistic despite their 0-1 loss in the three-match ODI series against New Zealand. Shastri also feels that the conditions in New Zealand were challenging and that the youngsters did well in difficult situations. After a close series win in the T20Is, Team India lost in the 50-over cricket. While the second and third ODIs were washed out midway due to rain, New Zealand won the first game in Auckland by seven wickets as well.

Speaking on Prime Video after the third ODI, Ravi Shastri said, “I think a lot of positives came from this one-day series. Shreyas Iyer getting runs in a couple of matches, willing to stay there and willing to go through the tough period. Suryakumar of course has the potential, has the talent, and he will deliver.”

“Washington Sundar, I thought was very good. And even Umran Malik, I like the way he bowled. There’s potential there. If he can persevere, it will be very good. All around, there was very positive Shubman Gill at the start of the innings. These conditions are tough, you don’t get these conditions often, and you don’t travel to New Zealand that often. So I think for young cricketers to come here and get this kind of exposure is excellent. The weather and the ground dimensions need to be taken into account,” Ravi Shastri concluded.
