Cricket News: Current India skipper Virat Kohli is expected to walk aside from that job after the T20 World Cup, in a possible move that might impact the fate of Indian limited-overs cricket in the coming months. In Test cricket, though, Virat Kohli is anticipated to keep his position as captain. With Virat Kohli stepping down after the World Cup in October-November, Rohit Sharma, Virat’s vice-captain in ODIs and T20Is, could be in line to take over.
Kohli, who is now leading the team in all formats and has impressive stats in all formats, has apparently decided to split leadership responsibilities with Rohit Sharma, who is 34 years old. Sources from the BCCI were reported in a Times of India report as confirming this.

According to the article, Kohli has had extensive meetings with Rohit and the team management in recent months, particularly after India won in Australia while he was on paternity leave.
“Virat will make the announcement himself. He believes that he needs to focus on his batting and return to becoming the best batsman in the world, as he has always been “Sources were cited by the TOI.
While the development is significant in the context of Indian cricket and is expected to go viral, the BCCI appears to have been planning for it.
Virat Kohli will concentrate on his batting with two more World Cups coming up in the next two years
According to the Times of India, the BCCI is planning ahead of time because there could be a lot of speculation. According to the sources, Virat and Rohit would eventually agree. According to the source, Kohli believes that captaincy is affecting his batting in all three formats, which could be a factor in his decision to step down. He wants to be in top shape because India has two more World Cups to play in 2022 (T20) and 2023 (ODI) (ODI).
“It will bring an end to a historic Test cycle for India.” Virat is also the first to admit that his overall responsibilities as skipper across all formats are affecting his batting performance. He requires extra space and light since he has so much more to contribute. Virat can continue to spearhead India’s red-ball ambitions while working on his T20 and one-day batting if Rohit takes over as white-ball captain. He’s only 32, and given his health, he should be able to play top cricket for at least another five to six years,” sources claim.
