Ravi Shastri on Virat Kohli: The Indian team is playing a 3 ODI series against New Zealand. In the first match of this series, Team India defeated New Zealand by 12 runs. In this way Team India is ahead 1-0 in the series. At the same time, the second ODI of this series will be played in Raipur on 21 January. However, before the Raipur ODI match, former Indian player Ravi Shastri has given an important suggestion to Virat Kohli. Actually, the former coach of the Indian team believes that Virat Kohli should not play in the third ODI against New Zealand.
‘Virat Kohli should play in Ranji Trophy’
Ravi Shastri said that former Indian captain Virat Kohli should play in Ranji Trophy instead of playing third ODI against New Zealand. He said that I have always believed that you should play first class cricket as much as possible. Especially, when you have to play maximum matches on Indian soil. I know top cricketers don’t want to play first class cricket because there is cricket all around. At the same time, he said that you do not want to take risks, but sometimes you have to take daring steps, you have to make sacrifices.
Example given by Sachin Tendulkar
The former coach of Team India gave the example of Sachin Tendulkar. He said that about 25 years ago, Sachin Tendulkar had decided to play first class match before the home series against Australia. After which he scored a double century against Australia. After this, in about 2 months, Sachin Tendulkar scored more than 1000 runs by combining Test and ODI formats against Australia. However, the Indian team will play a series of 4 Test matches against Australia. The first match of this series will be played in Nagpur from 9 February.
