Ravi Shastri, like most us, is a working-class person. The only difference is the number of zeroes in his salary.
Well, since his reaffirmation as the coach of the Indian cricket team, Shastri is to get a hike, an appraisal of 20%, according to Hindustan Times.
This takes his annual package to somewhere between Rs 9.5 crore and Rs 10 crore.
Meanwhile, Vikram Thakur, the man who's replacing Sanjay Bangar as batting coach will start from somewhere between Rs 2.5 crore to Rs 3 crore.
The reason why I came in here is the belief I had in this team, the belief that they could leave a legacy which very few teams have left behind which other teams going down will try and emulate.
Well, the pressure's on him to achieve those goals. After all, he's getting a lot of money for it.
