Virat Kohli’s choice to step aside as captain must be honored, according to Ravi Shastri
Kohli’s decision to stand down as captain in all formats should be respected, but the team’s vice-captains should not be disclosed ahead of time, according to former India coach Ravi Shastri, whose tenure ended after the ICC T20 World Cup 2021.
Due to age-related limitations and having originally previously served mandates as India’s head coach, Shastri was still unable to continue in his position. Despite the fact that he left during a period in which the Indian side won the Border-Gavaskar Trophy twice in Australia, the inability to win an ICC trophy is often attributed to one of the most dominant franchises and its coaching method.
Every member has to perform with certain limits so most of it is dependent upon how battle will be more effective.
He announced his resignation as India (T20Is) and RCB captains following the tour of England and the second leg of the IPL 2021 in the UAE, and was later dismissed as the ODI captain as well.
However, when India lost the Test series against South Africa, he declared that he will also stand down as captain of the Indian Test team, leaving a leadership vacuum in the team that had previously been ranked No. 1 in the world.
Kohli performed admirably in his whole position in the squad and is highly recommended. The process of being a perfectionist is incredible.
Apart from the double victories in Australia, India was leading the series 2-1 in England when it was called off in the middle of last year owing to coronavirus worries.
Shastri told PTI at the event in Oman that if you defeat one series, people start blaming you. You won’t be able to win each battle; there will be wins and losses. For the previous five years, you’ve been the best squad on the planet.
According to him, Rishabh is a superb young player. He will be truthful; he liked him a lot as a coach. He is also attentive. Many people assume that he plays whenever he wants, but this is not true. He is constantly considering the team’s best interests. And I’ve always seen that he has a strong grasp of the game. You should always remember his leadership abilities in the future.
Shastri stated You must respect his choice. Everything has its time and place. Many prominent players have stepped down as captains in the past to concentrate on their batting or cricket.
Shastri praised Rishabh Pant as a long-term possibility amid the simmering discussion over who may now be elevated as captains and vice-captains.
He also stated that it doesn’t matter if it’s Tendulkar, Gavaskar, Dhoni, or Kohli. Many of the world’s most powerful players have yet to win a World Cup. It’s all fine. Can we label Ganguly, Dravid, and Kumble as horrible players because they did not win?
