Virat Kohli hopes to continue as ODI captain until the 2023 World Cup after stepping down as T20 captain, but the BCCI’s appointment of Rohit Sharma as ODI captain has created a sensation in the cricketing world.
Fans are demanding that Virat Kohli, who has the highest percentage of wins, highest runs and highest centuries in ODIs, be handed over the ODI captaincy.
Kohli fans trending the hashtag ‘Kickout Shah Ganguly’ (#KickOutShahGanguly) on Twitter, demanding BCCI President Sourav Ganguly and BCCI Secretary Jay Shah to be removed from the Board.
Virat Kohli gave India its first ODI series victory against South Africa in the last tour of South Africa. As captain, he scored 558 runs in six matches and batted superbly.
Virat Kohli, who won 17 consecutive matches at home and defeated a solid 5-1 victory over South Africa, is facing strong opposition to being sacked as the ODI captain ahead of the South Africa series.
BCCI President Sourav Ganguly and Jay Shah are being targeted by Indian cricket fans on Twitter for their absurd decision on sacking Kohli. His numbers are among the best among all the captains who have led India. Fans are saying that better days will come for Indian cricket if these two are removed who are behaving unconstitutionally.
