Virat Kohli could have continued as Test captain for 2 more years: Ravi Shastri

Virat Kohli's decision to step down as the Test captain left many experts and fans shocked and Ravi Shastri believes that he could have carried on for 2 more years

Virat Kohli's decision to step down as the Test captain left many experts and fans shocked and Ravi Shastri believes that he could have carried on for 2 more years.

In a chat with India Today, the former India head coach said that had Kohli carried on for a couple of more years he would have then made it to 50-60 wins under his captaincy but a lot of people wouldn't have been able to digest that fact.

'When Sachin Tendulkar and MS Dhoni were not enjoying captaincy, they left. Similarly, when Virat thought that he had won 40 matches, six years he had been leading and now he wants to enjoy his cricket. He wants to focus on his batting and release a bit of pressure,' added Shastri.

Kohli ended as the most successful Indian Test captain but stunned the cricketing world as he stepped down from the post after India's Test series loss vs South Africa.
