Indian cricket team head coach Ravi Shastri has been one of the favourite subjects of meme makers for quite some time now. Whether the former all-rounder says something in interviews or shares any pic on social media, netizens somehow find ways of trolling him. While some of the memes are indeed funny, many are distasteful at times. However, Shastri isn’t really bothered about the jokes made on him. Addressing to media after India’s 3-1 Test series triumph against England, the 58-year-old was asked to react to the social media memes on him that often go viral.

I mean when you post those things, kitne jan haanste hai, bolte hai Ravi ke barein mein (when they post a meme, people laugh and they talk about me). “It’s okay as long as the team does well,” the Indian head coach added further.
