England and India are currently involved in an intriguing contest on the first day of the Edgbaston Test.
The hosts were lucky to win the toss on a belter of a track as there was no doubt in the mind of Joe Root about batting first. Though the visitors bowled well and kept them on the tenterhooks during the post-lunch session. However, amidst the battle on the 22 yards, Team India head coach Ravi Shastri was seen taking a nap in the dressing room as Harbhajan Singh caught him clearly and poked fun at him.
The incident took place in the 45th over of England’s first innings. Shastri was sitting alongside Sanjay Bangar who was listening to the commentary with the earpiece attached to his left ear. The Cameraman hilariously spotted the 56-year-old slipping into a snoozing mode.
At the same time, Bhajji was in the commentary box who is covering the series for Sky Sports. He was quick to poke fun at the visitors’ coach and advised him to watch him the exciting game while also requesting Bangar to give his message to Shastri.
“Ravi Shastri having a nap there. Wake up, Ravi. Sanjay, can you convey my message to Ravi?” he said as the panel his fellow commentators enjoyed the moment.
