Former Indian Player Chetan Chauhan on Sunday Blames Team India's head coach Ravi Shastri for the 4-1 Test series loss and also said that the former captain should be removed before Australia tour in November.

Speaking to media, Chetan Chauhan said "Ravi Shastri should be removed as head coach before the Australia tour. He is a very good cricket commentator and he should be allowed to do so."

Chauhan is the latest cricketer to demand Shastri's resignation after former captain Sourav Ganguly and Virender Sehwag.

"Team India should have performed better. Both the teams were evenly matched. But the Indian team failed to check tail-enders of England," Chauhan said.

The former Test opener also criticised Shastri for calling Kohli-led Indian Team as the 'best travelling team in the world'.

"I do not agree. In the 1980s, the Indian team was the best travelling team in the world," he said.

After a thumping victory over England at Trent Bridge in the third Test on August 16, Shastri had claimed the present India side was the best travelling team in the world.

Speaking on India's chances in the ongoing Asia Cup in Dubai, the 71-year-old, who has played 40 Test matches and scored 2,084 runs between 1969 and 1981, said a better result is expected as the team is balanced with experienced and young players.

The Merrut-born player made his debut in 1969 against New Zealand in Mumbai and played his last Test against the same country in 1981 in Auckland. He also played 7 One-day Internationals for India.
