From ‘spirited’ to spiritual!
Prior to Thursday’s match in Rajkot where Team India scored a decisive victory against Bangladesh in the second T-20 match, coach Ravi Shastri sought the blessings of spiritual guru, Bapa Mahant Swami.
“Ravi Shastri and a few players, including opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan visited the Swami Narayan Temple here and sought the blessings of Bapa Mahant Swami,” confirmed a source, who added, “Bapa wished Team India well in the series and also prayed for the good health of the players.”
India’s first loss against the visitors may have prompted Shastri to seek divine help. However, his visit to the temple was massively trolled in social media.
“Mandir wala with Madira wala,” wrote one Twitter user while another asked, “Thoda Shankar Bhagwan ka prasad milega kya?”
Yet another poked fun at him and wrote, “Everything alright Ravi? From being a spirited one to becoming spiritual-LOL.”
Meanwhile, there were a few stray supporters too. “Ravi, you are really blessed to get blessings from Mahant Swami,” wrote a devotee.
