The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) sacked the entire Chetan Sharma-led National Selection Committee and invited fresh applications for the post.
Sunil Joshi, Harvinder Singh and Debashish Mohanty were the other members who were asked to leave. After the big news was revealed, the fans filled the social-networking site with Virat Kohli’s memes.
A big drama was played out after India’s exit from the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. Virat had stepped down from T20I captaincy while the BCCI sacked him from the ODIs.
He left the Test captaincy as well. There were reports of a rift between Kohli, Sourav Ganguly and the selectors. Ganguly had said that he asked Virat to continue leading in the shortest format, but he refused.
Even Chetan said the same thing. But Kohli contradicted it, saying that he was never asked to continue and was informed about his sacking just one-and-a-half hours before the selection meeting for the South Africa tour.
Hence, when the news about the sacking of Chetan and his team broke out, the fans posted Virat’s memes.
The defeat in the Asia Cup 2022 and the ICC T20 World Cup had the writing on the wall.
