Ravi Shastri said – the decision to take ODI captaincy from Virat Kohli is right, told – what will be the benefit of this

New Delhi. After taking the captaincy of ODI from Virat Kohli, a new controversy has arisen in Indian cricket. Different opinions are coming out regarding this decision of BCCI. While one side is supporting the decision to make Rohit Sharma the new captain of the ODI, one does not feel it right. Meanwhile, former head coach Ravi Shastri, who took the Indian cricket team to the pinnacle of success with Virat Kohli, has given a big statement on this controversy.

Ravi Shastri Said in a special conversation with Star Sports that Virat Kohli Replacing Rohit Sharma as the captain of the ODI and T20 team is the right decision for the future.

Ravi Shastri also gave the reason for his statement. He said, “I think it is right to have different captains for Test and ODI teams. In a way, this can prove to be like an opportunity in disaster for Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. Because in the circumstances arising out of Corona, it will not be easy for the same person to handle the captaincy of the team in all three formats. Because it is not easy for anyone to stay in the bio-bubble for a long time.”

Shastri further said that after stepping down from the ODI captaincy, now Virat can easily focus on Test cricket and can do so as long as he wants to take over the reins of the team in Tests. After stepping down from the ODI captaincy, Virat will have full time to focus on his game. He still has 5-6 years of cricket left.

India won 70 percent of ODIs under Kohli’s captaincy
India could not win a single ICC trophy while Kohli was the captain of the ODI team. For this reason, questions were often raised on his captaincy. However, his ODI captaincy record is excellent. Under Virat’s captaincy, India has won 65 out of 95 ODIs. That is, 70 percent of ODIs have been won. Under Kohli’s captaincy, India won 15 of the 19 bilateral ODI series, including historic series wins over South Africa, Australia and West Indies on their soil.
