Following whatever has been going in between Kohli and Ganguly, the president of the Board of Control of Cricket in India, Sourav Ganguly has popped up with a closure remark for the synopsis.
After Kohli opened up on the plot in a conference contradicting Ganguly’s statements, the BCCI president now says he does not have anything to add and the matter will be handled by the board.
Moreover, he quoted that he loves Kohli’s attitude but he loves to fight a lot.
“I like Virat Kohli’s attitude but he fights a lot.”
Let’s not take this further, I have nothing to say. It is the matter of the BCCI and they will only deal with it.”
The story began from the point when Virat Kohli informed BCCI about his decision to give up T20I captaincy. As decided, he bid farewell to the T20I captaincy after the recently coiled-up ICC T20 World Cup 2021 to focus on the rest of the aspects of his life and manage workload.
In his recent press conference, where he made distinct claims in regards, he said ‘giving up T20I captaincy was his own choice but he wanted to lead team India in One-Day format and the Test Cricket.’
As decided earlier, Rohit Sharma became the new candidate to lead the men in blue in T20Is. However, the sudden announcement from last week astonished the cricket world as the BCCI reports stated,
‘The decision if Kohli will continue as an ODI skipper or not will be taken before the South Africa tour’.
The moments after the BCCI named the squad for the South Africa series, as expected, Kohli lost his ODI captainship with Sharma being his successor. Sharma’s first task as an ODI skipper will be leading the team against South Africa this December.
The plot has left Kohli himself and his fans broken, however, Sourav Ganguly, the president of the BCCI tells a different story.
He narrates the board and he personally requested Kohli to stay as the T20I captain, however, Kohli, in his recent press conference denied the claims saying his retirement was accepted happily and the board did not stop or requested him to stay even once. He claimed instead it was said the decision is in the right way.
He further had added that the selectors find it inappropriate to have two separate captains for limited-over captainship, hence, Sharma was chosen as a captain for both. Kohli agreed without any ifs and buts but says that he was informed 90 minutes before the South Africa series squad announcement about his ODI captainship roles. The 33-year-old finds it inappropriate and feels the matter should have been discussed when he informed the Board about his T20I captaincy retirement.
