Twitter Reacts As Reports Suggest Virat Kohli Will Step Down From White-Ball Captaincy After T20 World Cup

Virat Kohli's impressive legacy

Mondays can’t be more happening when you wake with up with the news of the Indian captain renouncing his responsibility as a skipper. It has been a while since Virat Kohli took over the reins of the Indian cricket team in all formats of the sport. Despite the fact that he couldn’t win an ICC tournament, he still managed to forge an almost invincible team that can easily be ranked as one of the best line-ups in the history of Indian cricket.

Going by the report of TOI, Virat Kohli will most likely step down from the captaincy role after the conclusion of the World T20.

The TOI reported BCCI sources by saying, “Virat himself will make the announcement. He is of the view that he needs to concentrate on his batting and go back to becoming what he’s always been — the best batsman in the world.” As per the reports, both Virat and Rohit shares a similar opinion and the latter is to resume captaincy in white-ball cricket after the World Cup.

In fact, BCCI was also heard quoting that they are well aware of the twisted advancements that would take flight after an immense development like this was announced. Given Indian media’s history, they prepared well in advance to deal with any fallout that can surround this titanic move. However, both Rohit and Virat are suggested to share similar ideas and the transition won’t be a problem, the report cited.

Virat Kohli as a captain

Kohli’s captaincy records are absolutely sublime, as he managed to play 95 ODI’s as a skipper and bag 65 wins from them. Kohli also led India in 45 T20’s winning 29 of them.

Going by the sources, it is said that Kohli believes his batting form is being impacted by the pressure of captaincy. It has almost been two years since the 70th century came.

With two World Cups coming in consecutive years, Kohli wants to get back to his free-flowing batting form and that is the primary reason of him getting back to the role of a batter.

Rohit Sharma as a captain

Rohit Sharma’s figures as a captain in the shorter formats of the game has been excessively illustrious as he has led Mumbai Indians to five IPL’s and also managed to captain India to 23 victories from the 29 he led the team in.

His batting form has remained unfazed even as a skipper, and it seems that he turns into an even more menacing version of himself as he takes the leadership.

Twitter simply couldn’t contain their excitement after such a rollicking piece of news hit the internet. They broke into a febrile fit of debates, with posts lauding and questioning this move.
