Former Australian wicketkeeper-batter Adam Gilchrist hilariously trolled erstwhile Team India head coach Ravi Shastri, that left former England captain Michael Vaughan in splits.

Ravi Shastri resumed his commentator duties after his tenure as head coach came to an end following India's early exit from T20 World Cup last year. Former India captain is currently part of commentary team of Fox Sports for the ongoing Test series between Australia and Pakistan.

In a video that went viral, Adam Gilchrist was talking about Audi Car that Ravi Shastri received when he won Player of the Tournament award in 1985 World Championship of Cricket. He added that despite Shastri claiming to be 'Ambassador of Audi', the former all-rounder was spotted wearing a Ferrari cap during the morning walk with commentary.

"We focused on him (Ravi Shastri) on winning the Player of the Tournament from World Championship of Cricket as it was in 1985. And he showed the footage of receiving Gold Audi." Gilchrist said on the show 'Club Prairie Fire'

"Shastri proudly say that it was the first ever Audi in India, he took it back home and Governement waived any excise duty on it. He still proudly says this day 'I'm an Audi Ambassador'. Next Day, on the walk, he's wearing a Ferrari cap." he added.

Former England captain Michael Vaughan couldn't control his laughter at hilarious dig by Gilchrist at Shastri.

Ravi Shastri's Audi story

Former Indian all-rounder Ravi Shastri received golden Audi 100 after he was adjudged Player of the Tournament award for his incredible all-round performance in the inaugural edition of the World Championship of Cricket in 1985.

Shastri considered it as an 'unforgettable moment with a high recall value'. Then Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi gave a special order to waive off customs duty on transporting the Audi sedan to India from Australia.

The Audi 100 was so dear to former Indian cricketer that even his father had to take permission from him to drive the car around. According Shastri, car didn't belong to him but belonged to India.

Ravi Shastri still owns the car number 'MF1' on Audi 100 and he keeps on giving the car to exhibitors in order to display it around the country. Audi 100 gained a lot of limelight in India as Shastri was the first person to own this car.
