“One and a half hours before the players’ announcement for the Test series, I knew I had been relieved of my role as captain of the ODI team,” said Virat Kohli. The Indian Test squad for the tour of South Africa was announced on December 8.
Unexpectedly, Rohit Sharma was appointed captain of the ODI series. This came as a huge shock to everyone. Virat Kohli is currently talking to reporters about the announcement. Just an hour and a half before the announcement of the Test squad, Chief selector Chetan Sharma contacted me and said that you would no longer be the ODI captain of the Indian team.
He also said that he will continue to captain the Indian Test team. It is also rumored that I will not be taking part in the upcoming ODIs in South Africa. That is completely false news.
No one spoke to me until December 8 about who should be offered the new T20 captaincy. I got a call before the Test team selection. The chief selector discussed the Test team with me, after which all five selectors said I would not be the ODI captain, to which I replied, ‘OK, OK’. We talked about this decision for a while after that. This is what happened. Virat Kohli said there had been no talks before that.
