There were far too many scandals that rocked Indian cricket toward the end of Ravi Shastri reign as the team’s head coach and the start of Rahul Dravid era. Virat Kohli was first relieved of his duties as the ODI team’s captain, and he then resigned as the Test team’s captain.
Additionally, there were rumors of a potential conflict between Virat Kohli and Sourav Ganguly, the then-president of the BCCI. When discussing events that occurred during his tenure, Ravi Shastri dropped a huge bombshell by revealing that many people actively participated in team selection meetings and deemed them to be unlawful.
Ravi Shastri comments follow several stories that claim Sourav Ganguly, a former BCCI president, was a major factor in Virat Kohli’s removal as the team’s ODI captain. Shastri acknowledged that he never went to a selection meeting and that he wasn’t even invited.
“I don’t have any personal experience. I never set foot in a selection meeting throughout the seven years I was a member of the team. I was also not invited. Yes, I believe, in the long run. As a coach who spends a lot of time with the players, it’s crucial to at least hear what the selectors are considering before casting their votes.

“I have no idea how the meeting began, how it ended, or who was present. I understand that many people who weren’t intended to be there attended the selection meetings throughout the course of the last three to four years. It violates the constitution, Shastri continued.
