Fans Are Slamming BCCI For Removing Virat Kohli From ODI Captaincy

India’s batting superstar, Rohit Sharma has been named as India’s new T20I and ODI captain, succeeding Virat Kohli who will now lead the Indian side in the longest format of the game. Virat Kohli led team India in all the formats until the T20 World Cup 2021 last month, following which the T20I captaincy role went to fellow batter Rohit Sharma.

The decision of Rohit replacing Virat Kohli was taken by the Indian selectors. Virat Kohli, who had a terrific average of 72.65 with over 5,000 runs in ODIs with 21 centuries as captain in 95 games, will go down in the history of this game as the most prolific record by a captain. However, on Wednesday, without detailing the reasons, the BCCI only said that the All-India selectors had “decided” Rohit should take charge of the ODI and T20I teams “going forward”. Yes, you read that right.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in an official release made the big announcement. The BCCI wrote:

“The All-India Senior Selection Committee also decided to name Mr Rohit Sharma as the Captain of the ODI & T20I teams going forward,” 

ICC also hailed BCCI’s decision to appoint Rohit Sharma as the captain in the limited over format and called it the beginning of a new era. The ICC wrote:

“Virat Kohli – Rohit Sharma. Beginning of a new era for India men’s limited-overs cricket.”

Meanwhile, ever since the news came out, social media was flooded with reactions from the netizens to it. From cricketers, pundits to experts, everyone took to Twitter and reacted to the big news. However, a section of fans was left disappointed with the BCCI and started slamming them for removing Virat Kohli from the captaincy position.

While some felt it was too early to take this decision, on the other hand, there were many who felt BCCI owes an explanation to the fans. Fans are slamming the BCCI left, right, and center for taking this bold decision.
