Kohli's captaincy controversy resurfaced
A leadership debate featuring Virat Kohli surfaced once again during the WTC final. A experienced Australian cricketer accused the BCCI of mistreating Virat.

The captaincy tenure of Virat Kohli, the former captain of the Indian cricket team, unexpectedly came to an end. Firstly, he relinquished the T20 captaincy to manage his workload. Following that, the board also stripped him of the ODI captaincy. Following a setback in the Test series against South Africa, Virat chose to resign as captain of the Test squad in a fit of rage.

Meanwhile, it was revealed on video that he and former BCCI President Sourav Ganguly had a falling out. Dada made many remarks to the media following Virat’s leadership departure. Furthermore, before flying to South Africa, Virat fanned the debate by speaking at length during a news conference.

The dispute grew from there

The issue returned at the World Triathlon Championships, which began on Wednesday, June 7. This time, it was brought up by former Australian batsman and head coach Justin Langer. He felt that the BCCI had handled Kohli unjustly when commentating on the last match. This comment sparked outrage, prompting Kohli’s followers to return to social media.

Anyway, every time Rohit Sharma is mentioned or choices like not adding Ashwin are made, questions surrounding Virat Kohli’s captaincy tend to heat up. Such events usually pit Virat and Rohit’s followers against one another.

What did the Australian legend say?

Justin Langer expressed his admiration for Virat Kohli’s aggression during the commentary. He criticized the BCCI for mistreating him. I couldn’t agree more. If he wished to continue as the captain of the ODI team, he should have been shown respect. I didn’t dislike anything about Virat. His aggression, desire, and batting abilities were outstanding. He was also an excellent captain.

Speaking of Virat Kohli’s captaincy, he led Team India in 68 Test matches, out of which the team won 39 and lost 16. So far, he has been Team India’s finest Test cricket skipper.

Virat Kohli had waited for nearly 1000 days before scoring an international century in September 2022. He achieved his 71st century against Afghanistan in the T20 Asia Cup. Following that, he scored two centuries against Sri Lanka in the ODI series in January.

In the Border Gavaskar Trophy Test series, he also smashed a century. He was in excellent form in the IPL 2023, scoring back-to-back centuries and building a large number of runs.

Considering this, all eyes were on him for the final match. As of now, it is yet to be seen how Team India’s batting will perform. By the end of the first day, Australia had scored 327 runs for three wickets.
