Shastri recalls 39-year-old memories on Basin Reserve, Team India will play Test match in the same ground from tomorrow

He said, the dressing room is still the same. Nothing changed.

20th February, 2020

Ravi Shastri, known as 'Khadus' in the Mumbai language, does not usually express emotion, but upon reaching the Basin Reserve, he went into the corridors of memories as he played the first Test for India on this ground 39 years ago. Big-eyed Shastri wore India's 151st Test Cap at the age of 19, 39 years ago. The six-foot-tall young cricketer had to wear three sweaters amidst the cold winds on the basin reserve.

Shastri tweeted with his picture looking at the boundaries of wooden benches and white grills, it's been 39 years. History repeats itself. Tomorrow will be this day, this ground, this team and this city, where I played the first Test 39 years ago. He said the dressing room is still the same. Nothing changed.

Shastri was actually called to New Zealand as an alternative as Dilip Doshi was injured during the Australia tour. At that time Shastri was playing the Ranji Trophy quarter-finals in Kanpur. According to the news published in 'Mid Day', Shastri got the news of his selection from the gatekeeper of the guesthouse in which the Mumbai team was staying.

Shastri, who played medium-fast bowlers like Madan Lal at home level, had scored 19 runs at number 10. He took three wickets for 54 runs and three wickets for nine runs from his spin bowling. India lost that Test by 62 runs but Shastri played 80 Tests and 150 ODIs for India for the next 11 years. While sitting or walking in the Old Basin Pavilion, the head coach of the Indian team will now be expecting his team to write a new script for victory.
