question on judgment
People might not be as surprised about the timing of Virat Kohli leaving the T20 captaincy. For some time, there was talk that Kohli can separate himself from the captaincy of this format in the coming times. Next month is the T20 World Cup and after Kohli’s announcement, can it affect the performance of the team as well. Many sports experts say that Kohli could have announced this even after the World Cup.
If the team had won the World Cup and after that Kohli had announced to step down from the captaincy, then perhaps something else would have happened. Now that the entire team and fans know that this will be Kohli’s last T20 World Cup as captain, his perspective will also be different. Kohli has not been in better form in the batting for some time, he may have done so to avoid its impact.
What’s on Kohli’s mind?
On Kohli’s decision to quit the T20 captaincy, many experts say that somewhere in his mind there must have been a matter of not winning a big tournament like ICC. Kohli has not been able to win any ICC title despite being the successful captain of India and one of the best batsmen in the world. Recently in the final of the Test Championship, it was expected that he would be able to overcome this shortcoming but it did not happen. Kohli’s batting is praised as well as the question arises that he could not win any major ICC tournament under his captaincy. India last won an ICC tournament in 2013 under the captaincy of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. In 2013, Team India won the Champions Trophy in England under the leadership of MS Dhoni.
This pressure on Virat Kohli would have remained in the World Cup this time as well. According to cricket experts, Kohli has taken this decision to avoid this unnecessary pressure. Kohli may be seen playing in this World Cup without being bothered by this record. If Team India is successful in winning the T20 World Cup, then Kohli will go on and on to do the feat which people will remember for a long time.
If you win then the way ahead is easy
If Team India wins the World Cup under the leadership of Virat Kohli, then it will go to Kohli’s credit as well as his road ahead will also be easy. Kohli has announced to leave the captaincy of T20 for the time being, in the coming times, he will be seen captaining one-day and test matches. Many news came out in between about the captaincy of one-day matches. Currently, Team India is a strong contender to win the World Cup. Many T20 players can win matches on their own alone. Both bowling and batting are strong. If Team India wins the World Cup then this moment will be very memorable for Kohli. The win will be tied to his head, as well as the question of captaincy in ODIs and Test matches will also be put to rest for a long time.
