Virat Kohli To Lose ODI Captaincy?

Mumbai: There is a strong possibility of Virat Kohli losing the ODI captaincy after India’s dismal performance in the two matches of the ICC T20 World Cup,

Rohit Sharma is expected to lead the Indian cricket team in the three T20 Internationals against New Zealand, starting November 17, the PTI reported.

Kohli’s future as ODI captain will be discussed when the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI)  and the national selectors meet in the next couple of days, the report added.

“The board is unhappy. And there is serious doubt over his (Virat) ODI captaincy now as well. But three games still left and if India, by any chance, manages to qualify and fight back in the tournament then the scenario could change. But, right now, if you ask me or anybody, Virat is doubtful as ODI captain,” a source was quoted as saying by IANS.

Notably, Kohli has announced that he would step down from India’s T20 captaincy after the World Cup.
