Virat Kohli May Relinquish Captaincy In Other Formats Too: Ravi Shastri

Mumbai: Former India cricket head coach Ravi Shastri said that Virat Kohli might relinquish captaincy in other formats too after doing so in the T20 format.

Talking to India Today, Shastri was queried about Kohli giving up captaincy in other formats to manage workload.

“In red ball cricket, India have been number one for the last five years under his captaincy. Unless, he wants to give it up or he is mentally fatigued where he says he wants to focus on my batting which can happen in the near future.

“It won’t happen immediately but it can happen. The same might happen with white ball cricket, he might say he had enough and he focuses on Test captaincy. It is his mind and body that will make that decision. He won’t be the first.

“A lot of successful players have given up captaincy to focus on their batting for their side,” Shastri said.

“He is hungry for sure, fitter than anybody in the team. No doubt about that. When you are physically that fit, your longevity only increases. On the captaincy part of it, it will be his decision but I see if anything he might say no to white ball cricket but red ball, he should carry on because he has been the best ambassador for the Test cricket. That will make him carry on,” Shastri said.
