Virat Kohli steps down, rumor turns true

Virat Kohli will step down as captain of the Indian team in limited-overs cricket! There have been rumors about this for the last few days. There was virtually a stir in Indian cricket. After which the Indian board itself has to be informed, the news is fake. Virat will be the captain in all three formats.

But within a few days, this time Virat himself announced his resignation from the leadership of the T20 format. However, he will be the captain of the Test and ODI teams. He will step down as captain shortly after the T20 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates. The decision to concentrate on batting is huge.

In place of Virat Kohli, co-captain Rohit Sharma is naturally in the running to become the captain. However, the board has not yet commented on the matter.

Kohli Tweeted about his decision

In a statement on the same day, Virat wrote, “I am very lucky to be able to represent India as well as lead Team India. I would like to thank all those who have supported me on this journey as the captain of the Indian cricket team. I could not have done this without my teammates, support staff, selection committee, coaches, and every Indian who has prayed for our victory.”

Then he added, “I have played cricket in all three formats for the last 8-9 years. I have captained in all three formats for 5-6 years. I now realize that I need to give myself some space to lead the Indian cricket team in Tests and ODIs. I have given my 100 percent as the captain of the T20 team. This time I want to give it to the T20 team as a batsman.”

Although it took me a long time to reach this conclusion. Before making this decision, I talked to Ravi Bhai and Rohit. Then after the T20 World Cup in Dubai in October, I decided to step down as the captain of the T20 team. I have already spoken to BCCI Secretary Joy Shah and President Sourav Ganguly and the selectors in this regard. But I am always ready to give my best for the Indian team.
