New Delhi. Many people may be shocked by the fact of Virat Kohli leaving the T20 captaincy, but its preparation was going on for several months. Talking about workload management, Kohli talked about leaving the captaincy after the T20 World Cup. But since the final of the World Test Championship (WTC), there was talk of leaving the T20 captaincy in view of his poor batting performance. The World Cup matches are to be held from October 17 to November 14.
According to the report of Cricbuzz, Virat Kohli’s challenge was increasing due to new selectors and changes in coaching. In February-March this year, Kohli had to struggle a lot to get Shikhar Dhawan in the team during the ODI series against England. The selectors wanted to keep the opener who performed well in the Vijay Hazare Trophy in place of Dhawan. But Kohli was in favor of Dhawan being included in the team.

Even though after this the selectors made Shikhar Dhawan the captain of the team for the tour of Sri Lanka. But after the meeting in March, it took 5 days for the team to announce and agree. However, sources say that there is no dispute between the captain and the selectors. The issue in March is an exception. However, close to Kohli says that Kohli does not need to prove anything. BCCI just wanted to take some pressure off Kohli.
