The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on June 23 selected former Indian captain Anil Kumble as the new head coach of Indian cricket team.
Though, news reports claimed Kumble, aka Jumbo was always at the forefront of the selection race, Ravi Shastri was also a formidable competitor.
But soon after Kumble was selected as head coach, cricket fans on Twitter took the opportunity to troll Ravi Shasrti for loosing the race.
This is what they had to say:
All those celebrating Kumble’s appointment as coach should calm down & think about what this means: Ravi Shastri in the commentary box.

Debating Anil Kumble vs Ravi Shastri for coach is like considering Dilip Kumar and Dino Morea’s qualifications for the same movie role .

Anil Kumble is the new coach of Indian Cricket team. The worst thing is Ravi Shastri is going to return to Commentary box.

Ravi Shastri wants to be coach. Modi in Tashkent. I think the last time Shastri and Tashkent were in news together was 1966.

I hope Anil Kumble remembers to quickly send his degrees to Kejriwal, patriotism certificate to Subramanian Swamy, and regards to Arnab.

Why hasn’t Modi been blamed yet for not allowing 100% FDI for coaches? #AnilKumble

When the Indian Test team tours abroad, its Coach would still be the best spinner available.
