New Delhi: Indian captain Virat Kohli has announced to step down from the captaincy of Team India’s T20 format on Thursday. Virat Kohli will step down as India’s T20 captain after the end of the T20 World Cup in November this year. After Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma is set to become the new T20 captain.
Kohli the first captain to do this feat
Virat Kohli has done that feat in his captaincy, which even a great captain like Dhoni could not do. Virat Kohli is the first Indian captain to win T20 series for Team India in SENA countries like South Africa, England, New Zealand and Australia.
Even Dhoni could never do this
Virat Kohli led India to win T20 series in South Africa and England in 2018. After this, Team India won the T20 series in New Zealand and Australia in the year 2020 under the captaincy of Virat Kohli. Even great captains like Dhoni could never win India a T20 series in SENA countries simultaneously.
