The Indian head coach, Ravi Shastri is surely a favorite for trollers on various social media platforms. Ahead of the historic day-night pink-ball Test at Eden Gardens in Kolkata against Bangladesh, seeking blessings, Shastri was recently posted a picture on his official Twitter account of him visiting the iconic Mahakaleshwar Temple in Ujjain. He was in the company of bowling coach Bharat Arun.
Shastri was dressed in a priests attire while offering prayers. Once the India head coach posted the picture on his social media accounts, fans were quick to come up with hilarious responses. Some fans felt that he was there because former Indian skipper, Sourav Ganguly had become the BCCI president and there were other funny responses as well.
Here is the picture posted by Shastri on Twitter:
