There are lot of twists and turns going in the game of cricket these days. There is a series of impositions and claims on and off the field.
Recently Virat Kohli in his presser reiterated the fact that he was not asked by Sourav Ganguly, BCCI President, to stay put as a T20I captain as he decided to relinquish his captaincy post T20I world cup.
But, a new wave of tweets and claims came into being, lot of older chaps of the game including Sunil Gavaskar, Kirti Azad, Md Ajahruddin and World Cup winning Captain Kapil Dev. There poured in a political humm when subramanyam swami zoomed into the horizon and remembered Virat Kohli’s Captaincy as a beamer to the game and demanded accolades like Bharat Ratna similar to sense as Sachin was awarded for his contribution.
Sourav Ganguly jumped in to refute the claims that he didn’t asked Virat before relinquishing his position. He says “Let’s not take this further, I have nothing to say,” Sourav Ganguly told reporters. Asked if there would be any action taken against Virat Kohli after the South Africa tour, Ganguly said, “I have nothing to say. It is the matter of the BCCI and they will only deal with it.”
It’s a call that the BCCI and the selectors took together. Actually, the BCCI had requested Virat to not step down as the T20I skipper but obviously, he did not agree. And the selectors then did not feel it right to have two different captains for two white-ball formats,” Ganguly had told ANI.
“So it was decided that Virat will continue as Test captain and Rohit will take over as the white-ball captain. I as President personally spoke to Virat Kohli and the chairman of selectors has also spoken to him,” the Sourav Ganguly, BCCI president had added.
Virat Kohli held a press conference on Wednesday and contradicted Ganguly, saying he was never asked to leave the T20I captaincy.
