He said the motto of the Coaching Beyond team is to unlock children’s potential to perform in sport and beyond.

“Our endeavor is to move young children from ‘potential to performance’ in sport and beyond using the best coaching and sport science practices available in the world today. We seek to develop intelligent and compassionate coaches and allied support staff who are well versed with knowledge of modern scientific principles and the wisdom to apply them appropriately,” added Shastri.

When asked about Virat Kohli playing 100th Test, the veteran cricketer said playing 100 Tests for a country was a remarkable achievement.

“It’s a remarkable achievement to play the 100th Test and be called a great of the game when he still has six to seven years to go to continue playing at the highest level,” Shastri said.
