Ravi Shastri reveals how Virat got the captaincy rule after MS Dhoni announced his retirement amid Test cricket

delhi| Former India captain MS Dhoni stunned the world in 2014 when he quit Test cricket in the middle of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. Dhoni decided to retire from the longest format after the drawn Test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, in which Virat Kohli took over the reigns of Team India in the middle of the series. Ravi Shastri was the team manager at that time. Ravi Shastri recalled that Dhoni had come to meet him after the draw and told him that he wanted to talk to the players in the dressing room as he felt the former captain would address him about the outcome of the match. Former India head coach Shastri said that he is confident that after Dhoni, Kohli will be the next player to lead the Indian team. ( dhoni test retirement )

Mahi retired from Test like this

Shastri told Star Sports that I knew that the moment MS Dhoni left, Virat Kohli was the man to lead the team. MS Dhoni knew who was the next leader in the line. He was waiting for an opportune time to make the announcement. He knew how much his body could take and wanted to prolong his white-ball career. When your body tells you it’s enough, it’s enough, with no second thoughts about it. OK, this came as a surprise. Shastri said that Dhoni came to me and said I want to say something to the boys. I said sure. I thought he was about to say something about the draw. He comes out. I only saw the faces around the dressing room. Most of the boys were in shock when MS made the announcement. But that’s MS for you.

Sacking as a boon for Kohli ( dhoni test retirement )

Meanwhile, Shastri believes that the dismissal may come as a boon for Kohli who can now focus more on his batting. Shastri said that I think this is the right way to go (2 captains for white ball and red ball cricket). This can prove to be a boon for Virat and Rohit. I don’t think a man in this era can handle captaincy in all three formats. It is not easy at all. We are both very aggressive, we played to win, we realized very quickly that to win we need 20 wickets, deciding to play aggressive and fearless cricket. This meant that at times you would lose the game but once you get one in line it is contagious. ( dhoni test retirement )
