Ravi Shastri’s Take on Sachin Tendulkar’s Statue & the Future of ODIs
Former Indian head coach Ravi Shastri recently shared his thoughts on the statue of Sachin Tendulkar unveiled at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The statue depicts Tendulkar playing a lofted cover drive, but it sparked mixed reactions from the public.
Shastri mentioned that he would like to ask Tendulkar about his thoughts on the statue, emphasizing that Tendulkar’s facial expression would reveal his true feelings. The batting legend, Sachin Tendulkar, is widely regarded as one of the greatest cricketers, having amassed 34,357 runs and 100 centuries in his illustrious 24-year career.
Additionally, Shastri expressed his opinion on the future of One Day Internationals (ODIs), suggesting a reduction in the format to 40 overs. He highlighted the diminishing attention span of spectators and the need to adapt to the changing times. Shastri observed that modern-day crowds tend to focus on specific segments of the game, indicating a shift in viewing habits.
As the ICC World Cup 2023 continues, Shastri’s insights provide valuable perspectives on both the legacy of cricketing icons and the evolution of the sport’s formats.
