He recalled, how during the days of his playing, Ravi Shastri without any hesitation applauded him for his good cricket. Jatin takes us back which took place during between 1980s-the 1990s and was a Ranji Trophy match in Haryana. Jatin stated what Ravi told him exactly,

“This is one of the best innings I have seen by a left-hander in a long, long, time’. And I thought that here is a guy who is going out to bat himself. All batsmen going into bat are a bit nervous, but he stopped and spoke to me. I think he did that because obviously he enjoyed the innings, but he also wanted to send out a message to the rest of the team, which was a young side, that ‘I am here for you guys”

“He is one of the best readers of a cricket match. He is fantastic. He has great foresight about many things in life, more so about a game of cricket, foresight about talent. He is a perennially positive guy. You won’t hear one negative word out of his mouth. He is generous with advice and never petty about anything,”
