England are jealous of India, says angry Ravi Shastri
Ravi Shastri, former India captain and commentator, has reacted strongly to comments made by former England skipper Nasser Hussain on not having LBW referrals in the Decision Review System in the India-England series.
Hussain had called the non usage of the DRS in this series by India an absolute disgrace. This came after Harbhajan Singh’s controversial LBW wicket.
A much infuriated Ravi Shastri blasted Hussain and the English Cricket Board and called them jealous of India’s success.
“What right does he have to say disgrace, its for both teams, there are certain things that can be corrected, fair enough England is trying to hit at everything that the BCCI does, everything damn thing that they do, A they are jealous about the way the IPL is going, they are jealous about where India is in World Cricket, they are jealous about the fact that India are world champions, they are jealous because of the too much money being made by BCCI, bottom-line is that they have never been number 1 in the world in Test cricket,” Shastri said.
