Ravi Shastri Birthday: Wishes Pour In On Social Media | Cricket News

Written by corres2

Former India all-rounder Ravi Shastri is celebrating his 60th birthday on Friday and wishes are continuing to pour in on social media. Shastri, known for always being a team man, was a part of the 1983 World Cup team and was also the Player Of the Series in the 1985 World Championship which the Sunil Gavaskar-led India won. After retiring, Shastri became renowned for his commentary and he then went on to coach the senior national side.

Shastri never said no to any role and that is why he is one of the few players to have batted as an opener and as a No.10 in different games.

The right-handed batter played 80 Tests and 150 ODIs for India, registering more than 6,500 runs across both formats. He also went on to take 280 wickets in his international career.

Here are some of the birthday wishes for Shastri:

During his playing career, Shastri had also matched the then world record of Sir Garfield Sobers of hitting six sixes in an over. Shastri had achieved the feat in a Ranji Trophy game in January 1985.

Shastri had played his last Test against South Africa in December 1992.
