Former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir feels the rift between the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and Virat Kohli should have been resolved behind the closed doors. After Virat Kohli left T20I captaincy, the BCCI sacked him from his leadership role in one-day internationals. Sourav Ganguly, the BCCI President, revealed that he had personally urged Virat to continue leading India in the shortest format but he refused.
Kohli refuted Sourav’s claims and revealed that he was never contacted. The 33-year old left Test captaincy after a series defeat in South Africa.
Gambhir told Times Now, “I think this could’ve been resolved behind the closed doors. It was a great TRP for a lot of news channels but that’s fine.”
“I don’t see any controversy which was created. Virat should have continued leading Test side. However, when Kohli left T20I captaincy, he should have let go ODI captaincy as well.”
