Look at Twitterati’s reaction to Shastri’s response:

Recently, Shastri revealed that he used to argue with Bhuvneshwar Kumar, the senior pacer with the Indian team during his time over the fast bowler’s fitness.

Shastri told ESPNCricinfo,

“Every time I meet Bhuvi (Bhuvneshwar Kumar), I have an argument with him. I say, if he can only focus and work harder on his fitness… his experience and ability in all formats of the game is remarkable. Every time we toured England or New Zealand, the guy was unfit,” 

He also added,

“I said, ‘you lost yourself 50 red ball wickets in the last couple of years’. If he stays fit, he is an automatic choice in the Indian team, forget Sunrisers.”
