Ravi Shastri
When it comes to Virat Kohli's time as a Test captain, Ravi Shastri has offered his thoughts on the subject.


Ravi Shastri has given his thoughts on Virat Kohli’s Test captaincy era to the cricket world.

For the following two years, Kohli could have been the Test team’s skipper without a problem.

India’s Test skipper Virat Kohli has an opportunity to enhance his legacy by doing so.

Ravi Shastri, the former head coach of the Indian cricket team, has given his thoughts on Virat Kohli’s captaincy era.

Kohli stepped out from the Test team earlier this month after his team’s 2-1 series defeat by South Africa. India’s most successful captain in the longest format of the game was Kohli, who won 40 of his 68 Test matches as captain. It was under Kohli that India finally won a Test series in Australia and became the world’s No. 1 Test team. During Ravi Shastri’s tenure as head coach of the Indian cricket team, he had a significant impact on the team’s success as it reached new heights.

The Indian squad would be playing lower-ranked teams over the next two years, and Shastri believes that Virat Kohli could have led the Test team with ease.

The next two years India would be playing at home, and who is coming over? Nine and ten jacks, if you look at the rankings,” Shastri told Sports Tak. “He could have led India for at least two years.”

However, Kohli could’ve done more as India’s Test captain, which may have been difficult for some people to accept.

A lot of people wouldn’t have been able to accept that he could have led the team to 50-60 victories, he said.

As a result of Kohli’s effective leadership of the squad over an extended period of time, Shastri asked that everyone support his choice to step aside as Test captain.

“The five years that Virat Kohli helmed India in Tests were the most successful of those years. This kind of record is unmatched by any other Indian captain. Only a select few captains in history can boast a resume like this. Because no one can match the record of 40 victories in 68 games held by the most successful captain, the decision to step aside as captain is a personal one “furthermore, he added.

A two-match series against Sri Lanka will be India’s next Test match in February and March.
