Having worked with Virat Kohli closely during his long stint as India coach, Ravi Shastri knows the mind of the master batsman like no one else. He backed him during his slump, advised him to take a break and got emotional watching him play an iconic knock that had "two of the greatest shots played by an Indian batsman".
I got emotional when it was all unfolding. I have seen what he has gone through in the last couple of years. We all know the recent context. Did I have something to say to him at the end? Frankly, not a thing. We are a country with short memories; topi masters of the world! We flip, change in two minutes. Kohli knows what I feel. I know what he feels. What’s there to be said? Not a thing.
