New Delhi: There has been a big disclosure about Team India’s captain Virat Kohli. Recently, Virat Kohli had announced to leave India’s T20 captaincy. According to a report, this news is coming out that Indian team coach Ravi Shastri had suggested Virat Kohli to leave the captaincy of T20 as well as ODI. Ravi Shastri had asked Virat Kohli to leave the captaincy of ODIs and T20s and concentrate on batting. According to the report, Ravi Shastri had asked Virat Kohli to continue the captaincy of Test cricket. According to India Ahead, this suggestion was given by the coach to motivate Kohli, so that he remains the world’s top batsman.
This man asked Kohli to step down as captain
A BCCI official said, “Talks about Kohli’s captaincy started after India won the series in Australia without their regular captain. Now it also indicates that Kohli may have to step down from the ODI captaincy at some point before 2023 if things don’t go according to plan. A BCCI official said, “Shastri spoke to Kohli about six months ago, but Kohli did not listen to Shastri. He is still keen to lead India in ODIs and that is why he decided to step down from the captaincy only from T20Is. Even the board was discussing how Kohli can be used as a batsman. This is because he still has a lot left as a player.
Kohli announces to quit captaincy in IPL as well
Kohli recently announced that he will step down from the captaincy of RCB after this IPL 2021 season. After this decision of Kohli, he was also heavily criticized and some veterans have also questioned the timing of his decision. There are reports that Kohli can be removed from the captaincy in the middle of the tournament during the second phase of the ongoing IPL in UAE. Some veterans said that the announcement of Kohli to quit the captaincy in the middle of the IPL tournament will have an impact on the performance of the RCB team. This also proved to be true. In the IPL match played on Monday 20 September, the Bangalore team had a shameful performance against Kolkata. Bangalore’s team was bundled out for just 92 runs and Kolkata registered an easy victory by 9 wickets with 10 overs remaining.
The sword hanging on Kohli’s captaincy because of this
According to the news published in CricketNext, some cricketers suggested that the RCB team was looking turbulent after Kohli’s untimely announcement of stepping down as captain. A former Indian cricketer said on the condition of anonymity that it seems that Kohli may be dropped midway from the captaincy of RCB. The former cricketer said, ‘Look how he was playing against Kolkata Knight Riders. Just unknown! Looks like he is struggling a lot at the moment. There is a possibility that he may be removed in the middle of the season.
