Virat Kohli wrote in the Twitter post – 7 years of hard work and tireless efforts to take the Indian team in the right direction. I did my work sincerely and never gave up on it. Everyone has to stop when they come to a stage. Now this time has come for me also as Test captain. There were many ups and downs during this journey, but my efforts and confidence never dwindled. Virat said that I always want to contribute 120% in everything, if I am not able to do that then it will be wrong. I am very clear about this and I cannot be dishonest with my team.
Along with this, Virat also thanked the BCCI officials and his fellow players for their long cooperation. Kohli said, I thank BCCI for giving me the opportunity to lead my country for such a long time and most of all I want to thank my teammates who adopted my vision for this team from day one and Under no circumstances did not give up. You guys made this trip very memorable and beautiful.
Tension with BCCI ahead of Africa tour
Virat was dropped from the ODI captaincy before the Africa tour. Both BCCI and Virat had different statements. BCCI President Sourav Ganguly also did not support Virat Kohli and justified the selectors. The selectors had said in their statement that we had asked Kohli to step down from T20 captaincy, but he did not listen to us and there cannot be two white-ball captains. Virat Kohli looked very disappointed after the defeat in Africa. During the presentation yesterday, Kohli said that there can be no excuse for this defeat.
