Another achievement for him. Won ODI series versus a very strong England ODI team in England this year.

He is the most biased Indian captain i have seen. There is clear bias in team selections. Also, his strategies are awful in terms of consistency. In few instances he has dropped the best performer of the playing 11. Examples are Bhuvi and Kuldeep. They were worse than blunders. It was horrible. It will be very tough for India to win even one ODI cup or T20i cup under his captaincy.

Shastri is another member of think tank who is supporting Virat in his blunders. Both of them need to be sacked from captaincy and coach positions respectively.

Ravi *modded* Shastri has always been a sycophant. That always came across as a pundit/interviewer

Just in his nature, I suppose

Virat is a big draw now in terms of marketing for broadcasters and sponsors. His clout is too strong. I am not saying that other Indian captains at their peak where saints, but Virat is crossing limits. Rhiti sports management and the Bunty group are now two main parts. Dhoni too had stake before in franchisee but there are lot more games happening by the sports management agencies in Indian cricket. Virat is supporting Shastri because Shatri is totally a "Yes boss" kind of person now. He has no guts to question Virat. So Shastri will keep enjoying the big pay check until he keeps saying "Yes Boss". He will be in favor of a safari in SA rather than the extra warm-up match. It is the partnership fo Virat- Shatri which is causing more downfall to our performances in SA, Eng, NA and maybe even Aus. But then cricket is much more than sport, especially in India it has become a huge business opportunity. No wonder these things will creep in gradually and we will see increased corruption and stupidity like in other professions.
