Sourav Ganguly breaks silence on Virat Kohli’s decision to leave the captaincy of the T20 team, says- the board did not say anything

Virat Kohli is counted among the great batsmen of this time

The T20 World Cup-2021 has started on the soil of United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Oman. India has to play its first match against Pakistan in Dubai on 24 October. Even before this World Cup, Team India’s captain Virat Kohli had told that he would leave the captaincy of the Indian team in T20 after this ICC tournament. This surprised many people. BCCI President Sourav Ganguly is also involved in this. Ganguly has said that he was shocked when he came to know about Virat’s decision to leave the captaincy. He also said that the board did not pressurize Kohli to give up the captaincy and it was his own decision.

Ganguly said that he understands Virat’s decision to leave the captaincy. The former India captain also said that it is not easy to captain a country like India in all three formats. Talking to India Today, Ganguly said, “I was shocked when Virat Kohli decided to step down as the captain of the Indian team in T20s. This decision was to be taken in the middle of the England tour and it was his decision. There was no pressure on him from our side. We didn’t tell them anything. We don’t do things like this because I have been a player myself, so I understand. It is difficult to be a captain for so long in all formats.

different inside

Ganguly said, “I have been the captain of the team for six years. It looks good from outside, gets respect, everything else. But inside you are very hot and it can happen to any captain. Not just with Tendulkar or Ganguly or Dhoni or Kohli. This will happen with the upcoming captain as well. It’s a tough job.”

Said this thing about Virat’s form

Ganguly has also spoken on Virat’s form and said that every great player has to go through it. Every player goes through this phase in his career. He said, “It happens. Virat has been playing for 11 years. Not every season can be good. He is a human, not a machine. So I am not surprised, their graph went up and then came down. After that it went up a lot. That’s how you look at a player like Virat. If you play for a long time, these ups and downs will keep coming.”
