"Get the feeling a lot of people who play for Mumbai these days take things for granted"

Mumbai couldn't qualify beyond the league stage in both Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and the Vijay Hazare Trophy this year

Ravi Shastri has been involved in the Indian cricket ecosystem for far too long to understand every bit of detail and that does include keeping a close eye on the Indian domestic cricket. Being a former Mumbai player, he has the incentive to keep a close tab on Mumbai's performance and it is fair to say that he is not a happy man after the side's recent Vijay Hazare Trophy debacle.

"I might have been a coach of India, traveling around the globe, and also when I was doing television work here and there, but I keep an eye on Mumbai cricket because I'm a proud Mumbai player who likes to win. He plays it fair, he plays it hard, but he plays to win," Shastri said while speaking as a chief guest on Sunday at the prize distribution function of the Police Shield at the Police Gymkhana on Marine Drive, reported Times of India.

 "I might have been coach of India, traveling around the globe, and also when I was doing television work here and there, but I keep an eye on Mumbai cricket because I'm a proud Mumbai player who likes to win. He plays it fair, he plays it hard, but he plays to win," Shastri said.

Mumbai couldn't qualify beyond the league stage in both Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and the Vijay Hazare Trophy, despite having a new coaching structure in place. Shastri stated that players need to take their game seriously and shouldn't take their game for granted. 

"I get the feeling a lot of people who play for Mumbai these days take things for granted. They think that when we have a Mumbai stamp, then we will win, but this doesn't happen. You have to go and respect the game. Respect the work ethics, respect where you have come from and then go out and play as a team, that is the Mumbai cricket team, with pride," he asserted.
