Shastri makes another statement on captaincy row!!!


Former India head coach Ravi Shastri on Sunday opened up on the Virat Kohli’s sacking from ODI captaincy.

Virat, who had earlier left T20I captaincy wanted to lead India in ODIs and Test cricket. However, he was removed from captaincy in one-day internationals ahead of the series in the rainbow nation.

Speaking on Star Sports, Shastri said the entire saga could be a blessing in disguise for Rohit and Virat.

“It’s the right way to go. This could be a blessing in disguise for Virat and Rohit. For one guy to handle all 3 is not easy at all in this time of living in and out of bio-bubbles because of Covid.

“Virat can focus on red-ball cricket and lead for as long as he wants to lead in Tests. It will allow him to sit back and think on his game because he’s got a good 5-6 years left in him,” Shastri said.
