Virat Kohli Steps Down As the Indian Test Captain

First T20, then ODIs and now Test cricket, its the end of Virat Kohli- The Captain. Yes, that is correct, Kohli has announced his resignation as the Indian skipper in a social media post. This came after a series defeat against South Africa recently. So, within a period of 3 months, team Virat has given up captaincy of  all the formats of the game and a brilliant stint as the skipper of the national team has now come to an end.

“There have been many ups and also some downs along the journey, but never has there been a lack of effort or belief. I have always believed in giving my 120 percent in everything I do, and if I can’t do that, I know it’s not the right thing to do. I have absolute clarity in my heart and I cannot be dishonest to my team.

“I want to thank the BCCI for giving me the opportunity to lead my country for such a long period of time and more importantly to all my teammates who bought into the vision I had for my team from day one and never gave up in any situation. You guys have made this journey so memorable and beautiful.”

“To Ravi bhai and the support group who were the engine behind this vehicle that moved us upwards in Test cricket constantly, you all have played a massive role in bringing this vision to life. Lastly, a big thank you to MS Dhoni who believed in me as Captain and found me to an able individual who could take Indian Cricket forward.”
