The Indian cricket team and Ravi Shastri, who was recently reappointed as Indian Men’s Cricket team head coach, got a day off after team India defeated West Indies in the first test in Antigua within 4 days. Ensuring, the team and the staff juice up for their next assignment (beginning from August 30), they were all headed to Coco Bay to relax.

Giving netizens a glimpse from the trip, Shastri on Monday posted a picture of him on Twitter captioning it “Hot hot hot. Time for some juice. Coco Bay Sheer Rocks Beautiful. Antigua.”
In the picture, Shastri, with his hands spread out, can be seen soaking a beautiful view of mountains and blue sky from what appears a balcony of his resort-room. However, in what Shastri would have thought will inspire netizens to take on roads untaken, turned into a viral meme fest. Ever since, netizens have been trolling the former cricket.

India’s Tour Of West Indies
India started their World Test Championship campaign with a dominating win against West Indies. Although West Indies sent some scare into the Indian dressing room on Day-1 reducing the visitor to 25-3, however, India bowlers later wreaked havoc sealing a 318 run win over the host.
Alongside Ajinkya Rahane, who played exceptionally well in both innings (81 & 102), Jasprit Bumrah and Ishant Sharma impressed with the bowl. Ishant in the first innings claimed a 5-wicket haul while Japrit Bumrah wreaked havoc on the fourth day claiming his share of five-wicket haul in just eight overs.
West Indies players, on the other hand, never looked in control in the last innings and eventually helped India register their biggest win in terms of runs outside Asia. With the win, India is now on top of the World Test Championship points table.
