Sourav Ganguly Hailed Virat Kohli And Ravi Shastri After India’s ODI Win Against England: India concluded their 2022 England tour on a high with T20I and ODI series win, thrashing the hosts 2-1 in both the white-ball formats.
But, also, there will be regrets and disappointment of not being able to win or draw the Edgbaston Test meant that the 5-Test series which had begun in August last year and was suspended after the fourth Test due to covid, ended in a draw 2-2, India profligating their chance to win a Test series on England soil after 2007.
Nonetheless, the Men In Blue will take great heart from their thumping T20I and ODI series wins over a powerful England team who, before this loss, had lost only two ODI series at home between 2015 and 2022.

Sourav Ganguly is reportedly not on good terms with Shastri-Kohli
BCCI President Sourav Ganguly’s latest tweet is going viral. In his tweet, wherein he lauded Team India for success on this England tour, he also mentioned former head coach Ravi Shastri and former skipper Virat Kohli.
It was indeed under the Kohli-Shastri regime last year that India had taken a 2-1 lead in the first four Tests of this series. For the fifth Test, India were led by Jasprit Bumrah as new captain Rohit Sharma was down with covid and Rahul Dravid is the new head coach.
