Shastri MISSED Beamer, Bouncer, Flipper, Skipper, Yorker

On Monday, Ravi Shastri, the Indian cricket team’s head coach, revealed how much he misses his four-legged buddies back home.

Shastri tweeted a video of his dogs digging into their meal and wrote: ‘My buddies Bouncer, Beamer, Flipper,  Skipper, Yorker tucking in to their lunch on a rare sunny day on the west coast in India. Miss you guys. See you soon.’



Last year, Shastri posted an adorable picture of himself and his dogs in a ‘social distancing huddle’ during the pandemic — the post went viral.

Just ahead of the WTC final in June, Shastri played with his new special buddy Winston Lee — a redhead cocker spaniel belonging to Southampton pitch Curator Simon Lee.

We love Shastri’s affection for dogs, but confess we are intrigued by their names — Ravi never bowled a bouncer, beamer, flipper (as much as we can remember) or yorker during his cricketing days.

Sadly, he captained India just once — winning that Test, of course — and we believe Indian cricket would have acquired winning ways much earlier had he been given a longer tenure as skipper.
