Under the captaincy of Virat Kohli, India has achieved a lot of success in all three formats. But to reduce the pressure on him many times the option of split captaincy has been given.
Virat Kohli is the captain of the Indian team in all three formats
Star batsman Virat Kohli has been handling the captaincy of the team in all three formats for a long time. There were reports that there could be a major change in the captaincy of India’s limited overs team after the T20 World Cup and Kohli will take a big decision soon. If Kohli decides to leave the captaincy, then Rohit can become the captain of the ODI and T20 team.
The report said that Kohli is contemplating taking this decision to focus on his batting. However, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) treasurer Arun Dhumal on Monday dismissed these reports. However, legendary player Madan Lal says that Rohit should be given the captaincy because he deserves it. At the same time, he supported the divided captaincy. He feels that this will reduce the pressure of Virat Kohli.
Madan Lal supported the split captaincy
Madan Lal said, ‘I think it will be a good option. We are in a better position right now. We are fortunate that we have Rohit Sharma and whenever Virat Kohli feels that he wants to focus in one or two formats, then Rohit can come and he has a lot of experience. Kohli has been handling the responsibility of the team alone in all three formats since Mahendra Singh Dhoni stepped down from the captaincy.
Virat Kohli will benefit from split captaincy
He said, ‘I think India will benefit from this. I have read that Kohli will probably quit the ODI and T20 captaincy as he wants to focus on his batting which is a good plan. I don’t know if it is just a rumour or what but a split captaincy plan will benefit India. It depends what Kohli is thinking at the moment. India is doing well as a team and we have seen it recently in England. Will have to see what happens. Dhumal had told IANS, ‘This is nonsense and nothing like this is going to happen. Talks are going on only in the media on this. The BCCI has not held any meetings and there has been no discussion on the split captaincy. Kohli will continue to be the captain in all formats.
