Virat Kohli | ‘I will end my cricket career that day’; Virat Kohli
Virat Kohli has been named the new captain of the Indian T20 squad for the T20 World Cup match against Namibia. Kohli vacated the post of T20 captain after winning the last match by nine wickets. Fans are looking forward to captaining India’s T20 team after Kohli.
The names of Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant are being touted for the captaincy. It is widely believed that Rohit will be the next captain. However, the BCCI has not yet made an official decision on the matter.
Kohli’s aggressive approach to the match is quite remarkable. After the match, Kohli replied to the question whether the aggression on the ground would be reduced due to the vacancy in the captaincy. ‘My aggression, it’s never going to change. I will end cricket the day it happens. Even before I became the captain, I wanted to contribute to the team in some way, ”said Virat.
‘The resignation of the T20 captain is a relief in the first place. Of course this is an honor but things need to be seen in its own way. I felt it was the right time to manage my workload. I have had a heavy workload and its stress for six years. We have not been able to meet the expectations here, but the team came out with good cricket. We did not get the best overs in the first two matches. We could not play bravely in those matches. Our group was also difficult, ”said Kohli.
Kapil Dev | What can we do if the IPL is important for the players; Kapil Dev in T20 World Cup crash
Former India captain Kapil Dev has said that the players’ preference for playing in the IPL is more important than playing for the Indian team. The former Indian legend was speaking after the Indian team was eliminated from the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup.
He said the BCCI and the players should be planning for the next World Cup now. The team must prepare for the 2022 T20 World Cup. This is the first time in the last eight T20 tournaments that the team has not reached the knockout round, said Kapil Dev.
He said he was not against the IPL and that there should be enough space between the tournament and the World Cup. Kapil also demanded that Virat Kohli take responsibility for his defeat in the T20 World Cup. “The biggest lesson is not to repeat the mistakes made by the Indian team in the T20 World Cup,” he said.
