Chetan Sharma is facing flak for making a statement on Virat Kohli and ignited the feud which was over. After Aakash Chopra, Pakistan player Salman Butt has slammed the chief selector for making unnecessary claims.

Clarifying the statement made by Virat, Chetan sided with Sourav Ganguly saying that everyone had urged Kohli to continue leading India after the ICC T20 World Cup.

Speaking on the matter, Butt said with India on a tour of South Africa where they registered a historic win in Centurion, Chetan should have let the topic go.

“There was absolutely no need for him to bring this topic up once again because the team is playing, they won a match and is now looking to win the series. And the same guy you talked about is actually the captain of the team and the person he had a word with his presently recovering from Covid (Sourav Ganguly),” he said. 

“Miscommunications happen all the time, it is not such a big deal. And when the team is winning and is in rhythm, these talks are unnecessary and to to bring it back again. If someone did ask you that question, you should have moved on. And then there was a whole new separate topic that was brought up giving a different direction and from a relevant person. Totally unnecessary, uncalled for, not required at this stage. The discussion was over, let it go please, the team has just won a Test match,” he added.
