New Delhi: Team India's performance in the T20 World Cup was disappointing and they could not even reach the semi-finals. With Team India's departure from the tournament, head coach Ravi Shastri's term was also over. It also proved to be the last tournament for T20 captain Virat Kohli. Mentions that Kohli has announced to quit captaining the shortest format, even before the start of the T20 worldcup.
Now former Indian head coach Ravi Shastri has made a big statement about Virat Kohli. Ravi Shastri has said that Kohli can play cricket for another 6-7 years as he has got used to ignoring external things. Ravi Shastri has no doubt that Kohli is one of the greatest players of all time. Talking to the media, Shastri said, 'He deserves his right as a captain, what he has achieved is incredible. As a player, if you ignore external things, you can play for a long time. It's great to ignore such things. If Kohli continues to do that and I think he is doing it, he will have no problem playing for the next 6-7 years.'
Ravi Shastri further said, 'There is no question that Kohli is an all-time great player. There have been very few players who become great players in their lifetime and have become three years ago. He's enjoying success. It would be great if their body and mind gets a break on a stage.'
