indian media dirty media virat kohli: salman butt ne indian media ko kiya blame: salman butt accused indian media

New Delhi
Former Pakistan captain Salman Butt has said that Virat Kohli is being made a victim of ‘dirty game’ in the Indian media. Butt said that India played a great Test series in England recently under Kohli’s captaincy. And soon the important T20 World Cup is about to start. Now is not the time to start this captaincy controversy.

Salman Butt was asked about the reports circulating in the Indian media that the Board of Control for Cricket in India did not agree with certain decisions for Kohli in the World Test Championship. Apart from this, if India is unable to win the T20 World Cup in UAE, then Rohit Sharma can be handed over the captaincy in place of Kohli.

On his YouTube channel, Salman said, ‘Are you watching the timing of this news.’ “I have no problem with how the board thinks. It is his assessment as to who in his view can take the team forward… But is it time to reflect on all these things? Now it is being said that the captaincy of Virat Kohli is in danger. He recently played a series in England. He has captained the team well.

Butt said, ‘He was criticized for team selection but he continued to support his team and in return the team gave him great support. The team is playing good cricket consistently. The team is on top in every format and the World Cup is about to come, so such news coming in the media is nothing but a dirty game.

On the question of comparing the captaincy records of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli in limited overs, Butt gave a stern answer. He said that Rohit is a very good captain but Virat’s winning average in all formats is also good.

Salman Butt further said, ‘I have said earlier also Rohit Sharma is a very good captain. He has been very successful. But this is not the time for all these things. Trophies matter. I agree with this. But you see how many matches he (Kohli) has won on an average. And how successful he has been in the world. I don’t think this is the right time to discuss this. Kohli has done a lot for Indian cricket. This news has been spread with wrong intention and should not be done.
