Kohli in Good Form, Should Lead India in WTC Final, Says Shastri

In the fifth and final Test against England last year at Edgbaston, former head coach Ravi Shastri said that Virat Kohli should have been reinstated as captain of the Indian cricket team. As head coach at the time, Shastri now believes that naming JaspritBumrah captain was a mistake that contributed to India’s loss in the decisive match.

While addressing the media, Shastri stated, “I would have suggested Kohli’s name for captain if I was still the head coach during the Edgbaston Test. Before the third and final Test had to be postponed because of COVID-19, he led us to a 2-1 series lead.”

Shastri continued by suggesting that Kohli lead the squad in the forthcoming World Test Championship final if Rohit Sharma were to go injured before the contest. “Unlike this time last year, Kohli appears to be in a positive mental frame and is enjoying the game of cricket. He’s been performing admirably in the IPL this year, and I think he’s ready to take charge once more “, Shastri added.

In June, at Southampton, the Indian cricket team will play New Zealand in the World Test Championship final. Then, under Rohit Sharma’s guidance, the squad will try to win their first major ICC competition.
