BREAKING:
Virat
Kohli
to
step
down
as
India’s
T20I
captain
after

World
Cup
2021

Kohli

who
took
over
as
Team
India
captain
in
the
limited-overs
format
in
2017

has
so
far
led
the
Indian
cricket
team
in
the
T20Is
in
45
games.
India
registered
27
wins
and
lost
14
games
under
Kohli’s
leadership.
Two
games
ended
in
a
tie
and
as
many
games
ended
in
no
result.

“I
have
been
fortunate
enough
to
not
only
represent
India
but
also
lead
the
Indian
Cricket
Team
to
my
utmost
capability.
I
thank
everyone
who
has
supported
me
in
my
journey
as
the
Captain
of
the
Indian
Cricket
Team.

“After
a
lot
of
contemplation
and
discussions
with
my
close
people,
Ravi
bhai
and
also
Rohit,
who
have
been
an
essential
part
of
the
leadership
group,
I’ve
decided
to
step
down
as
the
T20
captain
after
this
T20
World
Cup
in
Dubai
in
October.

“I
have
also
spoken
to
the
secretary
Mr
Jay
Shah
and
the
President
of
BCCI
Mr
Sourav
Ganguly
along
with
the
selectors
about
the
same.
I
will
continue
to
serve
Indian
Cricket
and
the
Indian
Team
to
the
best
of
my
ability,”
Kohli’s
statement
read.
