Ravi Shastri: What he said, really meant and definitely didn’t

Ravi Shastri sanctifies the dressing room and makes it a holy shrine.

What he said:

“For me, sitting in the dressing room is all about pride. This room is like a mosque, temple, gurdwara, church, you name it. It’s a sacred place.”

The Indian team director, Ravi Shastri, is quite clear that the team dressing room should be off-limits.

He added:

“When you’re playing for your country, there are just 14 or 15 players there and you should know what that means. I’m a big one for understanding and preserving the sanctity of the dressing room. When I enter it, my hair stands on end. The day I finished playing cricket I never went into the dressing room. That’s why I also believe no one – barring the players – should be allowed in unless he has a good reason to be there.”

What he really meant:

“No sneaking girl-friends or bookies into the dressing room either, chum. “

What he definitely didn’t:

 “All this came to me after meditating heavily.Where else, but in the dressing room!”
