Virat Kohli made an announcement almost a week ago that rocked Indian cricket. Many people were shocked by Kohli’s decision to resign last Saturday. In the wake of Kohli’s resignation as India’s T20I captain and later his removal from the ODI captaincy, it was thought that the concept of split captaincy would finally become a reality in Indian cricket. But before the idea could take hold, Kohli resigned from his position as captain.

It was once again a subject of speculation that Kohli and the BCCI had a rift once again following the last incident. For all we know, former cricket selector Kiran More is upset by Kohli’s entire situation, regardless of whether it is true or not. According to Further, Kohli has been unfairly treated, and he reminds us of his accomplishments not only as a cricketer but also as a captain – the most successful captain in history. “It happens every time. There has to be a regrouping and people have to come together. That’s Rahul Dravid’s job and that of the selectors. They are mature cricketers. How the Indian team settles in will take time. Test cricket is not easy regardless of the circumstances. In Test cricket, you have to play with your heart. Kohli’s 79 and 29 in Cape Town were equivalent to 150 on a difficult pitch,” stated More.

“Leaving the captaincy can be difficult. He commanded teams in all three formats. He must have decided to concentrate on his batting and help his country win matches. He has scored 70 international hundreds. In a captain’s life, the time comes when he or she must move on. He or she has already felt that now, ” he concluded.
