Ignorance is bliss: Shastri

Ravi Shastri spoke about the social media trolling in an interview with a news channel. He explained about his response to trolling by stating that he is not worried at all. He said that he knows that he is giving his 100% to the job he is doing.

He further added that if you start worrying, then you start messing up a lot of other things. According to him, ignorance is bliss.

I only tweet, I don’t read anything: Shastri

The former India all-rounder said that he sleeps absolutely sound as he is used to his era where you would have one or two papers only so you pick it up and read it.

The India head coach stated that he has time only for that. He also mentioned that he doesn’t have time for anything else. He made it clear that he may be on Twitter or Instagram but he only tweets, and he doesn’t read anything.

Ravi Shastri came under the scanner after India lost overseas Test series against South Africa and England. Team India won only two Tests in these two tours and this lead to former cricketers and fans questioning the role of Shastri.

In the recent times, Shastri’s views have been challenged by former cricketers as well.
