New Delhi: Virat Kohli will step down as captain of the Indian cricket team in limited overs cricket. BCCI sources have suggested that Rohit Sharma could lead India in ODIs, Twenty20 matches or at least Twenty20 matches.
The 32-year-old Kohli has led India in 95 ODIs. Of these, 65 matches were won and 27 were lost. The pass percentage is 70.43. India have played 45 Twenty20 matches under Kohli. India have won 27 and lost 14 matches.
Virat Kohli currently leads India in Test, ODI and Twenty20 formats. Earlier, some players had suggested that Rohit Sharma, who has captained the Mumbai Indians in the IPL, should lead India in the Twenty20 matches.
This is likely to become a reality after the Twenty20 World Cup, which starts in October. Kohli will step down as captain as part of his focus on batting. ‘Kohli himself will make the announcement in this regard. “Kohli says he needs to focus more on batting and regain his old form,” BCCI sources told national media.
