Shastri has always had a positive mindset: Saha
India wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha on Wednesday said that new coach Ravi Shastri has always had a "positive" mindset when he was the team director and that he was looking forward to working with him again on the Sri Lanka tour.
Shastri took over as India coach from Anil Kumble, making this his third stint with the national team.
The 55-year old former India captain was earlier the manager during 2007 tour of Bangladesh and then team director from 2014 August to 2016 June during which India won an overseas Test series versus Sri Lanka, reached the semi-finals of 2015 World Cup and World T20 semi-finals in 2016. "He is a very positive coach. When he was team director, he always used to tell us to back our strengths and not be defensive," Saha, an integral part of the Test team, said moments before leaving for Lankan shores.
