Ravi Shastri, the former Indian Team coach has supported the move of splitting captaincy for two lucrative formats of red and white balls. He argued about its usefulness in tackling the bubble pressure and other constraints that are hampering games of players worldwide.

“I think it’s the right way to go. This could be a blessing in disguise for Virat, and for Rohit, because I don’t think in this era if the bubble life exists for another year or so, one guy can handle all, that is not easy at all,” Shastri, himself a former India all-rounder, said on Star Sports show ‘BOLD & BRAVE: THE SHASTRI WAY’.

Virat Kohli at Presser before leaving for the proteas tour, promulgated him not being asked to rethink his decision of relinquishing his captaincy for shorter formats.

Shastri, who has served Indian cricket in various capacities, also said he wanted to establish Rohit as an opener.

“It was very clear in my mind that I wanted to do it. I thought if I can’t get the best out of him as a batsman then I am a failure as a coach because there is too much talent there,” said Shastri.

“We’re both pretty aggressive, we want to play to win. We realized very quickly that to win you need to take 20 wickets, deciding to play aggressive and fearless cricket.

“It meant at times you would lose games but once you got one across the line, then it’s infectious,” said Shastri.

Ravi Shastri has been serving the Indian Cricket team in various capacity since long has been known for his fierce aggressiveness where he inculcated a new tinge of game feels and calculated implementation with assessing loss and benefits at every step. He has been a good confidant for the Former captain virat kohli and Rohit sharma as well.
