Kohli’s absence an opportunity for young guys: Shastri

Sydney, Nov 22 (IANS) Captain Virat Kohli will be missed after India’s first Test against Australia in their upcoming tour Down Under but it is also an opportunity for younger players in the team, according to head coach Ravi Shastri.

Kohli will be playing in the series-opening pink ball Test at the Adelaide Oval starting December 17 but will return to India after that for the birth of his first child.

“I think it’s the right decision he’s taking,” Shastri said on ABC Sport. “These moments don’t come time and time again. He has the opportunity, he’s going back, and I think he’ll be happier for that.”

“If you see where India have gone in the last five-six years, there’s no doubt in absolutely anyone’s mind that he’s the driving force and the man behind it (India’s success). So he obviously would be missed. But like I say, in adversity comes opportunity. There are lot of young guys in the side and it’s an opportunity for them.”
