New Delhi
Former England captain Michael Vaughan has supported Virat Kohli’s decision to step down as the captain of the T20 International team after the T20 World Cup 2021. He has called it a decision taken with selflessness. Virat Kohli on Thursday announced in an emotional post on social media that he would step down as the captain of the 20-over cricket format after the T20 World Cup.

On Virat Kohli’s Instagram post, Vaughan wrote – Very good…! It is a very selfless decision and this decision will give you some good space to hope to relax away from all the pressures. After Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma is the strongest contender for the captaincy of the T20 team. It is believed that he will replace Virat Kohli.

Kohli announced with an emotional post
In a statement posted on his page, Kohli said, “Understanding the workload is a very important thing and considering my enormous workload for the last eight-nine years in which I have been playing in all three formats and regularly captained for the last five to six years.” I feel I need to give myself a little ‘space’ to be fully prepared to lead the Indian team in Test and ODI cricket.

He wrote, ‘I gave my all to the team in my time as T20 captain and I will continue to do so for T20 captain and will continue to do so to grow as a batsman.’ Kohli said he took the decision after consulting head coach Ravi Shastri, Rohit (apparently his replacement), BCCI president Sourav Ganguly and secretary Jay Shah. The T20 World Cup will start from October 17 and there will be a lot of pressure on Kohli to win the trophy.

Kohli said, ‘Definitely it took a long time to reach this decision. This decision was taken after much deliberation and discussion with my close people, Ravi bhai and Rohit, a key member of the leadership group. He said, ‘I also spoke to the selectors along with BCCI President Sourav Ganguly and Secretary Jay Shah about this. I will continue to serve Indian cricket and the Indian cricket team to the best of my ability.

Kohli’s captaincy record
India have had a good record in T20s under Kohli, although skipper Kohli is still in search of his first ICC trophy. Now Kohli has a better chance than winning the ICC T20 World Cup trophy in UAE and Oman from October 17. Kohli led India in 45 T20 matches, winning 27 and losing 14, while two matches ended without results and two were tied.
