New Delhi: Former India coach Ravi Shastri said Virat Kohli took a 'smart decision' by giving up captaincy from all forms of cricket, paving the way to express himself better in IPL 2022.

Shastri, who witnessed Kohli's leadership from close quarters during his stint as India coach, however, also feels the 33-year-old star batter could have continued as the captain in Test cricket.

"I think this (giving up captaincy) could be a blessing in disguise, to be honest.The pressures of captaincy off his shoulders, the expectations that come with being captain no longer there, he can go out, express himself, play freely, and I think he'll look to do just that," Shastri said.
