We all know that recently Virat Kohli has decided to leave the captaincy of the Indian Test team. Prior to this, he had already given up the captaincy of RCB and the Indian T20 team and was been sacked from the ODI team’s captainship just a while ago by the apex body of Cricket, BCCI.
Anyway, the last two years of his cricket career have not been special for Virat Kohli. In his captaincy, India also lost the 2019 World Cup and had to face defeat in the final of the World Test Championship in 2020. During this time, Kohli’s batting performance has also not been the kind of impression which it actually used to be.
Another reason for Kohli to suddenly give up the captaincy in Test cricket is also believed to be his ego because according to some secret sources, Kohli was not at all happy with the decision to suddenly remove himself from the captaincy of the One Day team and this actually shows the communication gap between BCCI and Kohli.
Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma Relationship
Actually, the news of the rift between Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma keeps getting highlighted in the media from time to time.
It is said that the rift between Rohit and Kohli started during the 2019 World Cup and due to this, India had to lose that World Cup, as well as team, was blamed to play the world cup by dividing it into two parts.
Even after the World Cup, the gap between the two continued to widen. Which the team’s management attempted to resolve as well, but they also failed miserably.
After the Indian team embarked on a tour of Australia in 2020, Rohit Sharma was dropped from the Test squad due to injury, and when Kohli left the team due to the birth of his daughter and returned to India, Rohit Sharma rejoined the team for the remainder of the tour. The difference between the two was clearly visible.
However, according to Kohli’s saying, there is no difference between him and Rohit Sharma and he is ready to play in Team India under Rohit Sharma’s captaincy. Although somewhere we still feel that there is definitely a difference of opinion between Rohit Sharma and Kohli, both of them do not want to replicate this fact in front of the media.
Now, as Kohli leaves the captaincy of the Indian national cricket team and Rohit Sharma is appointed as the new captain of the squad it will be quite interesting to see how Kohli performs under the latter’s captainship and how he behaves on the field as well.
Will he be more aggressive or will he adopt a conservative and peaceful nature on the field? We will find out it actually very soon.
