Ravi Shastri feels that it’s unfair to pick on one particular side when most of the nations have fared poorly on away tours. India have lost two away Test series in 2018, against South Africa (1-2) and England (1-4). This was after both tours were seen as the best chance for Virat Kohli’s men to set the poor overseas record straight.
Asked how important it is for India to win the series in Australia, Shastri said: “You have got to learn from your mistakes. When you go overseas and when you look at teams that travel around now, there aren’t too many sides (that travel well). Australia did for some time in the 90’s and during the turn of the century. South Africa did it for a while and other than these two, in the last five-six years, you tell me which team has travelled well. Why pick on India?” questioned Shastri.
