India's Shastri under fire after England series defeat

By

AFP, New Delhi :
India coach Ravi Shastri has come under fire for his side's humiliating 4-1 Test series loss to England - a second consecutive away defeat for the world's top-ranked side.
The thrashing in England, following the loss in South Africa earlier this year, piles pressure on Shastri ahead of a tour to Australia in November and next year's World Cup - as well as a massive clash with arch-rivals Pakistan next week.
Critics and former captains have rounded on the coach, particularly for his mid-series claim that his team is the best to come out of India in 15 years.
