Kohli will remain India's captain: BCCI treasurer rubbishes reports of Rohit taking over as white-ball skipper

WHAT?

The BCCI today rubbished the reports of split captaincy in the Indian team. Treasurer Arun Dhumal asserted that Virat Kohli will continue as the captain across all 3 formats & Rohit Sharma will not take over as the white-ball captain.

WHY?

Earlier, a report had claimed Kohli is all set to step down from captaincy in limited-overs cricket.

WHO?

Earlier, a report in the Times of India had claimed that Kohli is all set to step down from limited-overs captaincy post the T20 World Cup 2021 in UAE this year and will be replaced by Rohit. The report stated that Kohli has already informed the team management and Rohit about his decision and that he wants to focus on his batting by relinquishing captaincy responsibilities in ODIs and T20Is.

However, Dhumal has refuted the claims and said Kohli will continue to lead the side in all three formats of the game. "This is all rubbish. Nothing (as) such is happening. This is all what you guys (media) are talking about. BCCI has not met or discussed anything on this issue (split captaincy)," Dhumal told IANS. "Virat will remain as the captain (of all formats)," the BCCI treasurer was quoted as saying by IANS.
