Ravi Shastri served the Indian team in several ways – he was a left arm spinner who was a prominent part of the attack, he was a stubborn opening or middle order batsman and he was a vice-captain to a couple of captains. During his era, he was a glamour boy of Indian cricket as he was handsome and tall. Shastri himself acknowledged that he was not particularly talented but had reached his position through hard work.

In 1985, when the World Championship of Cricket was played in Australia, Shastri won the Champion of Champions title and the Audi car. In the One day game, he proved he was an excellent utility cricketer and rarely let his team down. His consistency, commitment to the team’s cause and immense value to the side was admirable. In 1987-88, he led India against the West Indies in a Test match and India was victorious.
