If you are an ardent follower of Indian cricket some of the past events might disturb you as two different statements came from BCCI President Sourav Ganguly and skipper Virat Kohli where the former said while taking to different media outlets that he asked Kohli not to step down from T20 International captaincy but Kohli denied this fact in a recent press conference where he added that when he had a word with office bearers that he don’t want to continue T20 International leadership the decision was welcomed immensely.
Some other reports started circulating on different media outlets where one of the BCCI official said they selectors asked Kohli to step down from ODI captaincy and asked him to revert on the mail in next 48 hours and when Kohli didn’t replied on the mail a post was shared on BCCI official Twitter Handle announcing Rohit Sharma will be leading Men in Blue in white ball format.
But Kohli recently confirmed that the selectors had a discussion with him on Test squad for South Africa tour and at the end of that call he was informed that he will no longer will be leading in ODI to which he agreed.
Kohli said that he understand the reason why captaincy was taken from him as he failed to win single ICC tournament as a leader but the way everything happened is something that has disturbed him immensely as the communication on this matter should have been more diverse and Open rather than coming from the sources who are not fruitful at all. He also clarified that he is ready for selection in ODI series in upcoming Proteas tour and will be eager to take Indian cricket forward along with Rohit and Rahul Dravid as the senior member of the team.
