Virat Kohli has also failed to score in the last few days. Although he was India’s most successful captain in Tests, his leadership in ODIs and T20s was criticized. Virat and Rohit Sharma were often compared. Rohit has won five IPL titles and Virat has yet to win one. At the same time, Virat was criticized for not being able to win a major ICC title yet.
What did Virat say ...
I have been playing all three types of cricket for the last 8-9 years. For the last 5-6 years, I have been working as a captain regularly. Consider my workload. “I am making this decision to contribute to all forms of cricket for the Indian team,” Virat said.
