Making the shocking speculations true, the current India Cricket team captain Virat Kohli on Thursday confirmed that he will step down as white-ball captain after the 2021 ICC T20 World Cup. Taking to his official social media channels, the dynamic captain has blamed work-load management as the reason to step down from T20 captaincy.
While all the eyes are now on Hit-man Rohit Sharma(34) to succeed Virat, one of the recent reports revealed the Cold War between BCCI and the current captain. According to the reports have it that Virat had suggested to the BCCI selection committee that Rohit Sharma should be removed as vice-captain of India’s white-ball teams.
Virat has reportedly quoted Rohit’s age as the main criteria. Instead, Virat suggested the captaincy be handed over to KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant for the T20 format. If this recommendation is taken into consideration, team India will have a young skipper under the mentorship of MS Dhoni.
