Virat Kohli Captaincy Controversy: India’s opener Rohit Sharma has been made the captain of the ODI team and the captain of the T20 team. In such a situation, Virat Kohli has been given the captaincy of the Test team. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) said this on Wednesday. Before the T20 World Cup, Virat had decided to leave the captaincy of the T20 team. After being removed from the captaincy of the ODI team, a new controversy started on social media. Netizens are criticizing BCCI on Twitter. BCCI President Sourav Ganguly reacted strongly. Did Virat leave the captaincy or was he removed? He commented on this.
In an interview to ANI, Ganguly said, “The cricket board and the team selection committee have decided to name Rohit Sharma as the captain of the limited overs cricket team. Virat was asked not to give up the captaincy of the T20 team.” The selection committee thinks that Rohit Sharma will now lead India in limited overs cricket, while Virat Kohli will be the captain of the Test team. I have conveyed this to Virat to the BCCI president and also to the main selection committee,” Ganguly said. “We thank Virat Kohli for his contribution as captain in limited overs,” Ganguly said.
Rohit Sharma will start his new tour with the ODI series against South Africa from January. We have full faith in Rohit Sharma’s leadership ability. Ganguly said that the BCCI is confident that Indian cricket is in good hands.
