Ravi Shastri who has just been appointed the Head coach of the Indian Cricket Team has said that this Indian Team led by Virat Kohli has the potential to become the best test side in Indian cricket's history.

"It can be a better Test team than any Indian team we have had. This is a team you can travel with. There is a battery of pacers which can do well in all conditions. Their age is such that they are playing at the right time," Shastri was quoted as saying by a news channel from London.

Asked about the challenges of coaching the Indian team

"I have always relished a challenge and I am looking forward to my stint with India. When you are asked to open the batting in overcast conditions, it is a challenge."

"I am used to challenges, bring on another one," Shastri said.

Shastri will have Zaheer Khan and Rahul Dravid by his side. Zaheer Khan is the bowling coach whereas Rahul Dravid will be the batting consultant on overseas tours.

On his equation with former India captain Ganguly, Shastri said: "We are two former captains (Sourav Ganguly), there will be arguments. But there is mutual respect."

Shastri and Ganguly were engaged in a bitter war of words last year when the former failed to appear in person during the coach selection interview and later lost out to Kumble.
