Virat Kohli: India’s superstar batsman Virat Kohli has struggled with poor form for a long time. Runs are not coming off his bat. He has not been able to score a century in any format of cricket for the last three years. Under the captaincy of Kohli, the Indian team had to face defeat in the T20 World Cup 2021. After this, the captaincy of the ODI was taken from Kohli, due to which the Indian fans felt that the BCCI was not treating him well. Now BCCI Treasurer Arun Kumar Dhumal has given a big statement.
Arun Kumar gave this statement.
Speaking at an event, Arun Kumar said, ‘As far as Virat is concerned, he is no ordinary player. He is great, and his contribution to Indian cricket is unparalleled. This kind of conversation (the board is trying to sideline Kohli) keeps happening in the media, and it doesn’t affect us. We want him to return to form soon, and as far as team selection is concerned, we leave it to the selectors.
Virat Kohli himself left the captaincy.
Arun Kumar Dhumal said, ‘As far as the captaincy is concerned, Virat Kohli decided that I do not have to do it now. But this is his point of view. He wanted to leave the captaincy, and it was purely his decision, and we respected it. He has contributed so much to Indian cricket that everyone on the cricket board respects him.
Captain changed after theT20 World Cup
After the T20 World Cup, Virat Kohli himself left the captaincy of the T20 team. However, after this, the BCCI did not want two separate captains for the limited overs format and Test cricket. In such a situation, Rohit Sharma was again made the captain in all three formats. India could not win a single ICC Champions Trophy under the captaincy of Virat Kohli.
