Regardless of India's performance at the T20 World Cup, Virat Kohli remained the captain of the White Ball unless he abandoned the leadership of the T20I team. When Kori resigned as captain in a short form, the selector decided to separate the red ball and lead the white ball completely to avoid confusion.
"We (BCCI) asked Virat not to resign as the T20I captain. We had no plans to change the captain, but he resigned as the T20I captain and the selector should not split his limited leadership. They chose a completely different captain, "ganguly told Indian Express.
It is believed that the failure to win the ICC event could put pressure on Kori's limited surplus captains and affect the outcome of the T20 World Cup. However, it is understood that the limiter maintained Kori as a leader of all its forms.
ganguly talked about the team's excellent performance in all formats led by Kori, but his failure to win the ICC event was the only missing part. In fact, to help Kori, BCCI has hired MS Dhoni as the mentor for the T20 World Cup team. This decision was "fully accepted" by a former Indian White Ball captain.
India was removed from the T20 World Cup on the group stage, but this does not jeopardize Kori's position.
However, the latter refused to continue as the captain of the T20I, so the limiter had to nominate Rohit Sharma for all-overs of Limited Cricket. "The bottom line is that you can't have two white ball captains," said a former Indian captain.
Indian cricket is not accustomed to having different captains of different shapes, which are common in England and Australia. When asked if the split captain and the two powerhouses in the team could cause problems in the future, ganguly replied no. India had previously split the captain for two years, with Kori leading the test team and Doni leading the limited cricket.
The BCCI chief told Kori about the changing leadership of ODI. "I spoke to him. The coach spoke to him," said the chairman.
Three months ago, after resigning as T20I captain, Kholi expressed his desire to lead India in future testing and ODI.
"It's very important to understand the workload. Given the huge workload I've played in all three formats for the last 8-9 years and have been a regular captain for the last 5-6 years, I think I feel I have to be part of the Indian team .. You need to be fully ready to drive. ODI Cricket and Test Team ", he wrote on Instagram on September 16th. The captain of Royal Challengers Bangalore has also left the IPL.
Kholi is one of Whiteball's most successful captains. With 95 ODI he won 65. With 45T20I, he beat India 27 times. But his drop in level could be one of the reasons he doesn't want to continue to focus more on attacking him as the captain of the T20I. Over the last two years, he has scored 560 points in 12 ODIs in less than a century. The average for this period was 46.66, well below his career average of 59.07. In 20 T20Is over the same period, he scored 594 points at 49.50, but in 13 tests over the last two years, he scored 599 points on average 26.04.
Rohit has long been Kori's assistant at Limited Cricket and has led the team with 10ODI and 19T20I in three consecutive victories against New Zealand recently. I started with a clean sweep. It made him the top 5 IPL title of Mumbai Indians following Kori.
