Former Indian head coach Ravi Shastri shared his photos from the Wimbledon centre court on Friday, 8 July. He was in attendance to watch the men’s semi-finals between Novak Djokovic and local boy Cameron Norrie.

Tweeting out his images, Shastri said that it was great to return to court.

“Great to be back in Centre court on a scorching afternoon for what should be a humdinger. Joko vs Home boy. Djokovic vs Norrie,” he said.

Cameron Norrie, a local lad from the UK was the ninth seed while coming into the tournament. Experts did not give him much chance against the first seed Novak Djokovic, but he stunned the crowd by winning the first set of the match. However a slip on his right ankle in the second set made things difficult for him. After winning the first set 6-2, he lost the second one 3-6 and is currently 1-2 behind against the Serbian in the second set of the game.

Former Indian head coach Shastri shared his images from the court expecting a humdinger, a wish that might come true. Shastri is in the United Kingdom as a part of the Sky broadcasting team to commentate on India’s tour of England.

He has had several memorables already with Kevin Pietersen and Nasser Hussain in the commentary box. Shastri has been quizzed about the direction of the Indian team and what Dravid brings for the side. He has mentioned that the current Indian head coach has done the hard yards and is the best candidate to take over after his tenure ended.

Under Dravid’s tutelage, India lost the fifth, rearranged Test match, but came back strong in the white ball series against Jos Buttler’s England, winning the first T20I by a huge margin of 50 runs. Hardik Pandya was adjudged the man of the match for the game after scoring his maiden T20I fifty and taking four wickets.
