Chief Selector Chetan Sharma has revealed his side of the story after Virat Kohli had claimed that he was not urged to continue as a T20I skipper.

The controversy regarding the sacking of Virat Kohli from ODI captaincy is still doing the rounds. According to, the BCCI was thinking to remove the 33-year old for last four months.

Kohli had left the T20I captaincy to manage his workload but wanted to lead in the ODIs and Test cricket. Much to his surprise, the BCCI, while naming the Test squad for the tour of South Africa, revealed that the selectors have decided to go ahead with Rohit Sharma in one-day internationals as well.

Later, the BCCI President, Sourav Ganguly confirmed that the call was taken to have one skipper in limited-overs formats. He even stated that Virat had refused to continue as T20I skipper despite his personal request.

Virat publicly refuted Ganguly’s claims to add more fuel to the fire (Virat Kohli vs BCCI). Meanwhile, the emergence of a new report suggests that his sacking was on the cards even before the ICC T20 World Cup.
