Latest Cricket News: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) released an 18-member squad for the three-match Test series against South Africa, which is set to begin later this month, at 7:16 p.m. IST on Wednesday. According to the apex body’s press statement, Axar Patel, Ravindra Jadeja, and Mayank Agarwal were not considered due to their injuries. However, one piece of news that piqued everyone’s interest was the removal of India’s batting legend Virat Kohli from the ODI captaincy. The white-ball duties are now been entrusted to Rohit Sharma, who was just made India’s white-ball captain after Virat Kohli declared stepping down from the job shortly before the start of the World Cup.

According to reports, the BCCI’s selection committee handed Virat Kohli 48 hours to relinquish his ODI captaincy. The BCCI selection committee chose to offer Rohit Sharma the post after Virat Kohli did not answer for two days (48 hours). Well, Virat Kohli, who plays with such ferocity on the field, carries so many emotions, has won so many games for the country, and also has a winning % of over 68 in the ODI format, it is fair to conclude that the manner in which he was dismissed was not one of BCCI’s greatest decisions.

Virat Kohli’s statement was not included in the BCCI press release, nor was the youngster mentioned. “The All-India Senior Selection Committee has also agreed to name Mr Rohit Sharma as the Captain of the ODI and T20I squads going forward,” it simply stated.

The quote encapsulates everything. Virat Kohli has been relieved of his leadership. Yes, we live in a time when athletes like Virat Kohli get fired from their teams. Take it as a news storey, a feature, or whatever you want to call it, but Virat Kohli has been fired as India’s white-ball captain.

A magnificent era has come to an end. Let’s hope Virat Kohli, the batsman, enjoys a long and healthy life.
