Virat said ‘mujhe nahi karni captaincy’: BCCI on ‘Kohli not treated well’ noise | Cricket

It’s been seven months since Virat Kohli stepped down as India’s captain of all three formats, but the topic still draws attention. Kohli had announced he would step down as India’s T20I captain, but in a cat-and-mouse game, the BCCI also replaced him with Rohit Sharma as India’s ODI captain, the announcement came via a simple tweet. The whole development caused a huge uproar in Indian cricket, escalating the entire Kohli vs Ganguly saga. In January, Kohli announced that he had also finished as India’s Test captain, officially ending his captaincy.

Call it coincidence or just bad luck, Kohli has been struggling for form ever since. Until last year, the biggest question around Kohli was whether he could end a century-long drought, but things took a turn for the worse when the star Indian batter began to look like a pale shadow of his former self, struggling for runs and out repeatedly. fell stump catcher.

With Kohli appearing to be coming out mentally, fans were beginning to wonder if the BCCI had tampered with him so much as to adversely affect his batting, but board treasurer Arun Dhumal has dismissed such rumours. With Kohli constantly taking breaks, many argue whether it is the right decision and whether he still fits in with plans for the World Cup in India. To that, Dhumal replied that Kohli’s selection is entirely up to the selectors.

“Look… as far as Virat is concerned, he is not a simple player. He is a great player and his contribution to Indian cricket is second to none. It is excellent. So such conversations (the board is trying to sideline Kohli) continue to media and it doesn’t affect us. We want him to get back in shape soon, and as for the team selection, we leave it to the selectors. It’s their decision how they want to go about it,” Dhumal said. veteran sports journalist Vimal Kumar on his YouTube channel.

Shedding light on Kohli’s controversial captaincy chapter, Dhumal said the decision was entirely Virat’s and that the BCCI, like everyone else, cannot wait for the former India captain to be back to his best.

“On the matter of captaincy, it was his decision. He decided that mujhe ab nahi karni hai captaincy (I don’t want that captain). It is possible that someone thinks it is best to do it after the World Cup, but that is their position But he wanted to stop and it was purely his decision And we respected it Look he contributed so much to Indian cricket that everyone on the cricket board respects him We would like to see Virat in action on the ground,” Dhumal added.
