New Delhi: Former England spinner Monty Panesar has given a big statement about Team India. According to Monty Panesar, India is more Ravi Shastri’s team than Virat Kohli.

The way India returned after being all out for 36 runs in Adelaide in the Test series on Australian soil last year was nothing short of a miracle.
