IND Vs NZ: Ravi Shastri, the former coach of the Indian cricket team, was the coach of the team for seven years. Ravi Shastri is known to speak his mind in front of others. He recently made an important statement about former Team India captain and batsman Virat Kohli. Which made a lot of headlines.
Advice to Virat Kohli
Ravi Shastri gave important advice to Virat; “If Virat does this then he might get out in the middle of the ODI series”. Virat Kohli is in excellent form at the moment. Virat Kohli has been in fine form in white-ball cricket in recent months. But he is yet to find his rhythm in Test matches.
In such a situation, former coach Ravi Shastri believes that Virat Kohli should play Ranji Trophy match instead of the last ODI to regain form. Remind you that Team India has to play Test series against Australia next month. In such a situation, Ravi Shastri has given this advice to Virat.
Borrowed example from Sachin Tendulkar
Ravi Shastri said during the first match of the ODI series, ‘I think Virat Kohli should play a Ranji match to prepare for the Border Gavaskar series instead of playing the third ODI against New Zealand.’
Using Sachin Tendulkar as an example, he further said, ’25 years ago Sachin Tendulkar went to play in CCI against an Australian team and scored a double century. Two months later, against Australia, he passed 1000 runs across all formats.
