Ravi Shastri believes Virat Kohli could benefit from a two-to-three-month break and must settle down and concentrate on his batting, according to Ravi Shastri. He believes that the former India captain has another five years of “excellent” cricket in him.
Virat Kohli can play as a gun player for the next three to four years, according to former Team India head coach Ravi Shastri, if he takes a two- or three-month rest from a series. After India’s Test series loss to South Africa, Kohli resigned as captain. He has the most Test appearances (68), as well as the most Test victories by an Indian captain (40).
Kohli should relax and concentrate on his batting, according to Shastri. He believes the former India captain has at least another five years of “excellent” cricket in him.
Virat Kohli could benefit from a two-to-three-month break.
“He recognizes that he is 33 years old and that he still has five years of good cricket ahead of him. If he can relax, concentrate on his batting, and focus on one game at a time, he should be able to take a break from the game. I believe that sitting out for two or three months, or taking a series off, will be beneficial to him “On Shoaib Akhtar’s YouTube channel, Shastri said the former Pakistan pacer.
“To return and play those three-and-a-half years as absolute king. That’s where I want to see Virat Kohli right now: mentally clear, knowing exactly what his job and duties are, and then playing as a team player. To come in and make a significant contribution as a team player in order to assist the team win, “Added he.
Kohli took charge of the team for the first time in a Test match against Australia in 2014. In his final match as captain, India lost by seven wickets in the Cape Town Test in South Africa.
It was never going to be easy to fill MS Dhoni’s shoes, but Kohli stepped up to the plate and soon established himself as one of the best minds the country has ever seen in Test cricket.
Kohli scored seven double-centuries in the longest format of the game as a result of Kohli’s leadership. Kohli is also the Indian skipper with the most Test hundreds (20).
