New Delhi
Virat Kohli has decided to step down from the captaincy of the shortest format of cricket after the T20 World Cup. Questions were being raised about Kohli’s captaincy for a long time now but on Thursday he suddenly announced it on Twitter. The board announced it later. But the question is arising that what is the reason behind this? Why Kohli suddenly had to give up his captaincy.

According to the news agency language, Kohli’s behavior is a big reason behind this. The agency quoted its sources as saying, “The problem with Virat is communication. Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s room was open round the clock and any player could enter. Could play video games with him, eat food and even talk about cricket if needed. “It is very difficult to get in touch with Kohli off the field,” he said.

Along with this, it is being said that Kohli had proposed to the selection committee that Rohit should be removed from the post of vice-captain. Kohli said that because Rohit is 34 years old, this responsibility should be entrusted to a young man. Kohli actually wanted Rishabh Pant or Lokesh Rahul to be made the vice-captain.

The source said, “The board did not like this approach of Kohli. He believed that Kohli did not really want a successor. Rohit Sharma is almost certain to get this responsibility if Kohli leaves the T20 captaincy and in such a situation, Pant, Rahul and Jasprit Bumrah can be contenders for the vice-captaincy.

If the team of Delhi Capitals becomes the IPL champion, then Pant can also become a contender for the post of vice-captain. The source said, ‘Pant’s claim is strong but Lokesh Rahul cannot be denied as he is also the IPL captain. Not only this, fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah can also prove to be a hidden weapon.
