Kolkata: Do not be surprised if you are an ardent Indian cricket aficionado – yet the news could be baffling as well. As per news reports, Virat Kohli would step down as skipper in the white ball format to reportedly concentrate on his batting after the ICCT20. And in would come Rohit Sharma to take over the reins of the team in the truncated versions of the game.
Though the BCCI has rebuffed such canards stating Kohli would continue to lead in all the formats of the game there is no smoke without fire.
Guess what, Indian cricket is full of surprises – newer developments that you may not relate to make you wonder where exactly we are heading for.
To be fair, Virat might be struggling for runs, but to coerce him into quitting captaincy is like rapping him on his knuckles for no major fault of his. But, the powers that be in the corridors of power at the BCCI would not budge. Shocking to say the least, watch the video and give your views.
