Former cricketer and team director Ravi Shastri has said that Virat Kohli should replace Mahendra Singh Dhoni as India’s captain in limited-overs format.
At that time Dhoni had shocked everyone with his sudden announcement of retirement, which had come in the middle of the Australia tour.
Though at that time he had made it clear that he had no plans to retire from other formats of the game, Dhoni’s record has not really improved much since then as he led the team in successive series defeats against Bangladesh, South Africa and Australia.
Kholi on the other hand has been brilliant in the past few months and helped India sail through many of the crucial matches.
Meanwhile Kohli hammered an impressive record of 973 runs including another record of four hundreds in a single series.
Shastri’s comment though comes at a time when the selection committee is resting many of its senior players for the upcoming Zimbabwe tour, though Dhoni would be leading the relatively younger team.
