Virat Kohli Enjoys The Test Cricket Most: Ravi Shastri
On the first day of New Year, India’s cricket head coach Ravi Shastri praised the efforts of Indian skipper Virat Kohli. He believes that Kohli has remarkably led the Men in Blue everywhere in the cricket world.
Virat Kohli became the vice-captain of the team in 2012. After the sudden and shocking retirement of MS Dhoni from the Test cricket, he was officially handed over the Test captaincy at the beginning of 2015. He then became a limited-overs captain in January 2017. Now, he has become the most successful Test captain of India surpassing the most-win captaincy records of MS Dhoni.
Virat Kohli takes Test cricket very seriously
Under Kohli’s captaincy, India has regained the No.1 position in the ICC Test team rankings, and in 2018/19 season, his team created history after winning the Test series against Australia in Australian. The No.1 Test batsman Virat Kohli has led the Men in Blue to great heights.
In an interview with IANS, Ravi Shastri has claimed that if a player like Virat Kohli promotes Test cricket, it will have an impact not only in India but worldwide.
“Massive…not just for the Indian team, but the world when it comes to Test cricket. More than anything else, when a player like him endorses the game in an open manner where he is very clear what he wants out of Test cricket and that he enjoys that format the most,” Shastri said.
Virat Kohli brings energy: Ravi Shastri
Praising Virat Kohli’s captaincy, Ravi Shastri said that the skipper has a different tactic to lead the team which is a plus point for the Indian team. He added that Kohli brought energy in the field which motivated the players in the field.
“With Virat, you can see he is someone who is improving by the day. The passion, the energy, the drive he brings to the cricket field is unmatched. I have not seen any other captain bring that kind of energy onto the cricket field. Tactically there are areas where by doing the job and getting the exposure he will get better. For whoever has captained in this game, there has been a learning curve,” Ravi Shastri said.
