The Indian cricket fans are eagerly waiting for the final ODI between India and England to be played on Sunday at Manchester. Before the tour can even get over, the Indian team is already having its eyes on the upcoming tour of West Indies, which begins on 22nd July with the first ODI at Port of Spain. Before the series former Indian player, captain and coach and now commentator Ravi Shastri is hogging all the headlines. Ravi Shastri known for his booming voice and strong personality was spotted in an ad ahead of the start of the India tour of West Indies series.
The Story as it happened -
Ravi Shastri is currently in England as a part of the SKY Sports booth commentating for the India- England series. The former Indian coach recently took to Twitter to give a little teaser of his ads along with known YouTube personality Ashish Chanchalani as the two come together for an ad. The two can be seen having hilarious conversations as a part of promo for FanCode which is going to broadcast the India tour of West Indies. Once the ads came out and featured Ashish Chanchalani who has a huge fan base and millions of followers, the ad created a huge buzz on social media.
