The pairing of Ravi Shastri and Virat Kohli has been around for a long time as the head coach and captain of the Indian team. Ravi Shastri’s tenure as head coach came to an end with the 2021 T20 World Cup, while Virat Kohli also stepped down as the T20 captain after that. However, he was later stripped of the ODI captaincy and resigned from the Test captaincy in January 2022. Now he is part of the team only as a batsman and is going to play his 100th Test match on Friday, 4 March. Ravi Shastri’s reaction has been seen on this.
Former Indian team veteran Ravi Shastri has shared an old video of Virat Kohli and himself on Twitter, in which he is commenting on Virat Kohli’s batting. In the caption of this video, Ravi Shastri wrote, “There are hundreds of reasons to celebrate the 100th Test match. It’s nice to see them on the field. Enjoy it champions.”
The first match of the two-match Test series between India and Sri Lanka will be played at the IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali and it will be the 100th match of Virat Kohli’s Test career. To make this match special, the BCCI has also prepared fiercely and has also taken the reactions of former cricketers for them. Captain Rohit Sharma himself has also praised him and said that he has been instrumental in taking India’s Test team to this point.
