- Virat Kohli may step down from the captaincy of ODI and T20 formats
- In place of Kohli, Rohit Sharma can be made the captain in both the formats.
- This is being done to give time and speed to Virat’s batting.
Team India’s white ball script is going to undergo a major change in the coming months. In fact, current captain Virat Kohli is likely to step down from the ODI and T20 captaincy after the T20 World Cup in October-November, paving the way for Rohit Sharma to become the captain. BCCI sources told our colleague Times of India that Virat Kohli (32), who currently leads the team across all formats and is India’s most successful captain till date, has taken over the leadership responsibilities along with Rohit Sharma (34). have decided to share.
Kohli was discussing this for a long time
Virat Kohli has had a long discussion with Rohit Sharma and the team management on this issue in the last few months. Especially after the victory of Team India in Australia, which went to India along with becoming Kohli’s father. While this development is going to rock the entire media and social media, the BCCI is also gearing up for the occasion.
The impact of captaincy on Virat’s batting in all three formats
Sources in TOI revealed, Virat Kohli’s batting is being affected due to the pressure of captaincy in all three formats. Kohli also feels that his batting needs more time and more pace across formats. Anyway, between 2022 and 2023, India has to play two World Cups (ODI and T20), in which case it becomes even more important.
Virat Kohli has led India to some historic Test victories in Australia and England since 2018 and his team is now on the verge of repeating the same feat in South Africa, if India succeeds on that tour in the months to come.
