Ravi Shastri opens up on the Indian team’s captaincy change in the white-ball format

The former head coach of the Indian cricket team, Ravi Shastri has given his view on captaincy change in the team as he feels the change could be handled in a better way and with good communication.

Ravi Shastri, the former head coach of India feels the whole captaincy saga could be handled in a good way. After Rohit Sharma was made the captain of the Indian cricket team in the white-ball format, some experts and ex-players felt it was the wrong decision taken by the BCCI and some also felt that the Board of Control for Cricket in India didn’t have a chat with the former captain Virat Kohli before announcing Rohit Sharma as the official T20I and ODI format captain.

The controversies keep on rising on this captaincy saga. Shastri spoke to Indian Express and feels that it was a very quick decision by BCCI and it could have been handled in a more specific or better way.


“I have been part of this system for many years, I was part of this team for the past seven years. with good communication, this can be handled much, much better, instead of it being out in the public domain.” the former Indian head coach Ravi Shastri said to Indian Express.

Ravi Shastri is no more a coach and Virat Kohli is no more a white-ball captain of India. BCCI has replaced both of them with whom they feel are eligible and suitable for this role. However, Virat Kohli will still be captaining the Indian team in Test Cricket. He will be the skipper for the upcoming Test-match series against South Africa starting from 26th December.
