This is the reason behind Virat Kohli who lost the captaincy
A key point was made by vice-captain Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli who lost the captaincy in white-ball cricket
Virat Kohli lost the Indian ODI captaincy
The recent sacking of the Indian ODI captaincy by the BCCI from Virat Kholi has sent shockwaves through the world of cricket. Speaking on the occasion, BCCI President Saurav Ganguly said that Virat Kohli has been asked not to step down as the captain of the 20-over India team.
However, Virat Kohli acknowledged that the captain of the 20-over Indian team had resigned before the World Cup, much to the shock of the BCCI. In this regard, he explained that the selectors have appointed Rohit Sharma as the captain of the 20-over and 50-over Indian team with the idea of â€‹â€‹having only one captain for the White Ball cricket series.
Saurav Ganguly also said that Virat Kohli will continue to captain to the Test team. The BCCI is said to have already discussed the captaincy with Virat Kohli and Vice-captain Rohit Sharma. Virat Kohli, who has since expressed his desire to captain the ODI and Test team, has said he will step down as captain for the ODIs after the 50-over World Cup in Australia.
Similarly, when the BCCI spoke to Vice-captain Rohit Sharma it was only better to have only one captain for the white ball format. He has stated that he is not interested in accepting the captaincy for the 20-over tournament alone. The BCCI has sought the views of both and has discussed the matter at the highest level.
The BCCI has decided to appoint Vice-captain Rohit Sharma as captain, taking into account the defeat in the 20-over World Cup series and the dissatisfaction with the Virat Kohli 's announcement that he would step down from the captaincy before the series. Accordingly, Rohit Sharma has been named captain of the upcoming ODI and 20-over Indian team for the South Africa series.
