The opener is also excited by Anil Kumble's appointment.

Rohit Sharma said that he is going to miss Ravi Shastri in the future.

Rohit Sharma quoted that Ravi Shastri was “a big influence on the Indian Cricket Team for the last 18 months. As soon as he came, he created a positive atmosphere around us.” He also added that Shastri, “took up the responsibility when we were in shambles.”

For Anil Kumble, he said that,” Kumble’s thinking about the game is so different from the rest… It just amazes you…. The kind of stuff he talks about and what he brings to the table is absolutely brilliant.”

He also added, “I have two years of experience at Mumbai Indians and I know the kind of things we spoke about. I was the captain and he was the coach and mentor of the team. I got to learn a lot from him. Kumble would tell the Mumbai Indians to never give up till the end. You have to keep fighting no matter what. If the game is slipping away from you, don’t give up till the last ball is bowled.”

India will be travelling to the West Indies for a four-test match series, which is Anil Kumble's first assignment as the coach of the Indian Cricket Team.
