Listen to the news


India Test captain Virat Kohli on Wednesday remained silent on the ongoing controversy over the captaincy. Virat said he was informed about the dismissal of the ODI captaincy an hour and a half before the selection of the Test team for the South Africa tour. Speaking to media, Virat said there had been no previous talks with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) regarding the captaincy. Understand the episode about Virat and the captaincy in 10 points …

  1. Virat said- I got a call from the chief selector an hour and a half before the selection of the Test team. Talked to me about the Test team. Before the end of the conversation, I learned that five selectors had decided to remove me from the ODI captaincy. I was not informed about this in advance. My answer to this is OK.
  2. Virat said- When I decided to step down from the T20 captaincy, the BCCI happily accepted the decision. Kohli said the workload was the reason for his departure from the T20 captaincy.
  3. Virat said- The BCCI did not say anything to stop me from stepping down from the T20 captaincy or ask me to reconsider this decision. The board said it was a positive move. I told the board to continue as captain in ODIs and Tests. Things are clear from my side. However, I told the BCCI that I had the freedom to decide if they wanted to continue as captain in any other format.
  4. In addition, Virat said he was available for the three-match ODI series in South Africa. He never asked for a break.
  5. Virat says- I am ready for selection in the ODI series to be held in South Africa. Some are lying. I never asked for rest.
  6. Earlier, media reports said that Virat had sought a break from the BCCI during the ODI series. He wanted to spend time with family. Kohli recently took a break after the T20 World Cup. In such a situation, questions arise on Virat after taking two breaks.
  7. The BCCI has announced the Test squad for the tour of South Africa and handed over the ODI team captaincy to Rohit Sharma. Rohit has already replaced Kohli in the T20I.
  8. Kohli also made a statement on Rohit. He said- My job is to take the team in the right direction. Rohit is a very capable captain and also adept at laying out tactics.
  9. Kohli said that Rohit will lead the team along with Rahul Dravid. Dravid is an excellent manager. He can take 100% help from me in ODIs and T20s.
  10. Kohli says about Rohit – There is no problem between me and Rohit. I understand the decision to remove him from the captaincy. The board made this decision after considering some aspect. For the last two years I have been saying that there is no conflict between me and Rohit. Now I’m tired of saying this. My job is to help the team move forward and I will do the same.
