New Delhi. Virat Kohli left the captaincy of the T20 team and cited workload management as the reason. He did not say anything about his captaincy. Since December 2020, Team India has played only 8 T20s. In such a situation, the biggest question that is being raised is whether Kohli will leave the captaincy of the IPL team RCB as well? It is known that Virat Kohli has not been able to get a single title for RCB under his captaincy. The second phase of IPL 2021 is to start from September 19. It will not be easy for the new coach to come after Ravi Shastri to reconcile with Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli. The team may get a new coach in November.
After leaving the T20 captaincy of Virat Kohli, many questions have also been raised. According to the news of the Indian Express, if Rohit Sharma leads Team India to consecutive wins in T20, will he be easily given the captaincy of the ODI team. Rohit Sharma can also be given the command of the ODI team before the ODI World Cup to be held in India in 2023. But Virat Kohli has now thrown the ball in the court of BCCI and selectors. If they want, they can remove him from the captaincy of the ODI team.
board can wait
However, the BCCI will not be in a hurry to change the captain of the ODI team. He can wait for some time. A lot will also depend on the result of Rohit Sharma’s captaincy. No one’s place in the team was confirmed under Kohli’s captaincy. They have also faced opposition for their decision. Especially by not taking off spinner R Ashwin during the current England series. Changes can happen in T20 and ODI squads, but Tests require a consistency. But his performance as captain in Tests has been good.
New coach will be available after T20 World Cup
Ravi Shastri’s tenure ends after the T20 World Cup in November. During Shastri’s time, Kohli had complete freedom. But now that the new coach will join Team India, it will not be easy for him to work. He will have to adjust to the two most senior players of the team, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. Virat Kohli is one of the most successful captain of Team India. On the other hand, Rohit Sharma has also proved his captaincy iron.
The board cleverly added Dhoni to the team
With the announcement of the T20 World Cup team, the BCCI made MS Dhoni the mentor of the team. This can be called a clever move. In such a situation, if the team performs well, then it will not be seen only by connecting it to Kohli. In such a situation, he is not going to get much benefit from this victory. Rohit Sharma, on the other hand, does not need to make much changes in the team. All he has to do is motivate the team to perform well, as he has done in the IPL with Mumbai Indians. Under the captaincy of Virat Kohli, the team won T20 series in England, Australia, New Zealand and Sri Lanka in the last one year. But due to not winning the ICC trophy, questions were being raised on him continuously.
