Virat Kohli has failed to win an ICC tournament as a captain across formats. He stepped down from T20I captaincy after the ICC T20 World Cup and is likely to take same step in the ODIs as well.
According to Insidesport, the BCCI doesn’t want two captains in shorter formats. However, the governing body doesn’t want to disrespect Virat.
“It will be a point of discussion for sure. Virat has led the team successfully in ODIs but having two captains in limited-overs cricket can create unnecessary complications as the set of players will be same,” a BCCI official told InsideSport.
The officials of the BCCi will try to convince Virat to step down voluntarily while be in the leadership group along with Rohit Sharma.
But as there are not many ODI matches in 2022, BCCI will not take any decision for the ODI series in South Africa. Virat will also play his 100th Test match in South Africa and the national body doesn’t want any distraction by removing him from leadership role.
Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma is expected to take over from Virat Kohli in one-day internationals.
