New Delhi
It was the 16th of September when Virat Kohli surprised everyone. He had said that he is going to quit the captaincy of the T20 team. Kohli had said that he would quit the captaincy of this format after the T20 World Cup. And exactly four months after that i.e. on January 15, Kohli also announced to leave the captaincy of the Test team on Saturday.

Although this decision came suddenly, but its strings go and connect with the T20 World Cup. Before the start of this year’s T20 World Cup, Kohli announced that he would step down as the captain of the T20 format after this tournament. After this, in December, Kohli was removed from the ODI captaincy. And Rohit Sharma was appointed the captain of the limited overs format.

Meanwhile, BCCI President Sourav Ganguly said that he had told Virat not to give up the captaincy of this format but he did not agree. He was told to reconsider his decision. However, before the departure of the Indian team on the South Africa tour, Kohli had said the opposite. Kohli had said that nothing of the sort happened and that his decision was well taken. Kohli said that the BCCI top officials took this decision very positively. Kohli said that he was not asked to reconsider his decision.

Kohli had also said that just one and a half hours before the selection for the Test series against South Africa, he was told to be dropped from the ODI captaincy. He had said, ‘Nothing was spoken to him about this before.’


The controversy escalated when chief selector Chetan Sharma mentioned the incident while announcing the squad for the ODI series against South Africa. On December 31, Sharma said, “Everyone in that meeting had asked Kohli to reconsider his decision to step down from the captaincy of the T20 team.”

India has to play the next test series against Sri Lanka. India has to play two test matches against Sri Lanka. This series will be played in February-March. This will also be Kohli’s 100th Test match.
