‘Kohli told not to step down as T20I captain, dismissed from ODIs’

Mumbai: Chief selector Chetan Sharma has said that Virat Kohli was stepping down as captain of the Twenty20 team and that everyone present at the selection meeting at the time asked Kohli not to resign as captain. Chetan was speaking at a press conference after announcing the Indian ODI team for the tour of South Africa. Earlier, BCCI president Sourav Ganguly had said that he had asked Kohli not to step down as captain. But Kohli also denied Ganguly’s revelation. But now Chetan Sharma’s response has been in favor of Ganguly. At the meeting that day, everyone was shocked when Kohli announced his resignation as captain. One can only imagine how such an announcement would be received in the run-up to the Twenty20 World Cup. All those present at the meeting had asked Koli to reconsider the decision. “I can think about it after the World Cup,” said Chetan Sharma. Chetan also said that Kohli was being sacked as the captain of the ODI team. Kohli’s decision to resign as captain of the Twenty20 team was his only decision. At that time, no one had asked Kohli to step down as captain. But with the resignation of the Twenty20 captain, the selectors had to think about the rest of the team. That’s how White came to the decision to be the sole captain for the ball format. The selectors were able to make a quick decision on the resignation of Kohli as the Twenty20 captain. In other words, it was only Kohli who decided to step down as the Twenty20 captain. The selectors’ decision to remove Kohli from the ODI captaincy is clear, says Chetan Sharma. Chetan Sharma also clarified that Kohli’s revelation that he would not be removed from the ODI team captaincy was not announced in advance. I called Kohli after the selection committee meeting that day. I was not interested in informing Kohli of this decision during the meeting. That is what was called after the meeting. I informed him that the selectors had decided that one captain was enough in the white ball format. Kohli asked a few questions in this regard. Those things cannot be revealed in front of you. We spoke well. Chetan Sharma clarifies. Content Highlights: Everyone asked Virat Kohli to reconsider stepping down as T20I captain says Chetan Sharma
