Shastri claims "Just walking into the dressing room" was enough to change mood in Indian camp

He also bigged up the 2015 Series win by Kohli in Sri Lanka...

saying that Kohli has achieved something that even teams with big names like Tendulkar, Ganguly, etc. could not achieve...

Hope he doesn't have to change his tune when India play in non-subcontinental conditions or not against West Indies who have now sunk to below Bangladesh in terms of their Test cricket....smiling smiley

But one thing is for sure...he shares with Kohli the "arrogance" gene....smiling smiley

What does that even mean? Change the mood? What point in time he is talking about? Maybe CT loss? But he wasn't in charge then. Or he means Indian team members were still thinking about that defeat when he took charge? That will be silly to think.

I think he is referring to the "mood" under Kumble which was strict and "overbearing" according to media reports...

Now it is all "chilled" and "relaxed"....smiling smiley

If that is the case, then it is a very good thing to happen. Definitely you don't want any undue pressure. But nobody other than Virat ever talked about it. Maybe others were scared. Dhoni , I think, would be unaffected by Kumble's presence.
If Kumble's presence was such a big trouble, then Virat should be lauded for his efforts to bring about a change.

We know NOTHING about the "mood" in the dressing room... but so far it seems the performance of the team has not been diminished with the departure of Kumble...

I am most worried about the bowling unit. Kumble was a believer in bowling as a unit.. and horses for courses where India mixed and matched the unit depending on conditions....

Too early to tell if the bowling unit will be impacted...India did pick the same bowling unit for both Tests... no mix and match (but it may not have been needed)...so too early to tell...
