Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma
Rohit Sharma-Virat Kohli: Rohit Sharma also captained the ODI team after the T20s. The BCCI on Wednesday made a big announcement, handing over the reins of limited overs format to Rohit Sharma to replace Virat Kohli. The big news is that Virat Kohli is unwilling to leave the ODI team command. He wanted to lead Team India in the 2023 World Cup. But the BCCI’s plans are different. According to reports, Virat Kohli has been given 48 hours to step down from the BCCI captaincy. Kohli, however, could not be reached for comment. With this, there are rumors that the BCCI has entered the field and snatched the ODI captaincy from Kohli.
The BCCI hopes to give a dignified path to Virat Kohli, who captained Team India for four-and-a-half years. But, Kohli did not listen to what the board had to say. He was then removed from the captaincy. The fact is that Virat Kohli has achieved a lot as a captain but failed to win the ICC trophy. There are rumors that the same thing has turned against him. Under Virat’s leadership, Team India failed to win the 2017 Champions Trophy, the 2019 World Cup and the 2021 T20 World Cup.
Virat Kohli’s brilliant performance as captain ..
In terms of victories, Virat Kohli has become India’s greatest ODI captain of all time. Under Virat’s captaincy, Team India won 65 of 95 matches. Successes are over 68 percent. Under the leadership of Virat Kohli, India have won 15 of 19 bilateral series. Under Virat’s captaincy, Team India won the series in Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, West Indies and Sri Lanka. Virat Kohli’s status as captain is understandable given these figures. Not only that, Virat Kohli also excelled as a captain. He scored 5449 runs at an average of 72.65, including 21 centuries and 27 fifties. In the last 20 years, if all the Indian captains combined centuries, its number would also be 19. It is clear that Virat Kohli has made his mark as captain and probably no one can deny this.
