Virat Kohli should take over captaincy in all the formats : Ravi Shastri


New Delhi: Former Team India director Ravi Shastri has said that the time has come when Mahendra Singh Dhoni should be allowed to enjoy his game by handing over the captaincy to Virat Kohli in all formats. Kohli is already leading the side in the Test cricket, but Shastri thinks he should succeed Dhoni in the shorter formats of the game as well for the team's benefit. "I definitely think so Kohli should be given the job across formats. You have to see where India is going to go three years down the line. There are no major events till about three years down the line when you are back with the World Cup. So, this is your best time to think and build," Shastri said in an interview.

The former Indian all-rounder further admitted that it would be a tough call to make, but added that he would definitely think of naming Kohli as skipper across all formats if he would have been a chief selector.
