After all these controversies, questions were also raised on the atmosphere inside Team India. The then president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Sourav Ganguly, and Indian captain Virat Kohli were against each other. There was a lot of discussion at that time that everything was not well between Virat and Sourav. Now, almost two years later, the former B. The CCI Chairman himself has revealed the entire secret.

While talking to Kolkata TV, Sourav Ganguly talked about this incident. He said, Rohit Sharma was not interested in it. But things had reached such a level that I forced him to say yes. If you don’t, I will announce it. Because he is a great coach. And when Virat Kohli left the captaincy, he was the best option who could have led the team. What I saw didn’t surprise me.

What was the whole matter?
Virat Kohli has announced that he will step down as RCB’s T20I captain after the upcoming World Cup. Rohit Sharma has been given the command of the team. There was a controversy regarding this before the South Africa tour and Kohli came clearly in the media and said that no one asked me anything. But Ganguly had said in the press conference that when Virat left the T20 captaincy, he was explained. Controversy started regarding this matter. Rohit Sharma has been made the captain of the team. However, due to injury, Rohit did not go on the tour and Rahul took the reins.

After this series, Virat Kohli left the captaincy of the Test team. He was seen playing under the captaincy of Rahul in the ODI series. This was the same period when Rahul Dravid’s tenure as coach also started. After this, some statements came from Virat in which he said that he wants to captain in ODI and Test. But after leaving the captaincy of the T20 team, he lost the captaincy of all three formats. Since then Rohit Sharma has been made the regular captain of the team. Rohit had the advantage of five IPL trophies and the Asia Cup 2018 in Virat’s absence. That’s why he seemed like a better choice for captaincy.
