ODI Cricket: Saba Karim has given his opinion. On why Virat Kohli has been sacked as the captain of the One-Day Internationals team. Karim has suggested India’s inability to win ICC championships in recent years. It could have influenced the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s decision. Karim made these comments on YouTube show Khelneeti. He pointed out that Kohli had himself made an announcement. Also, regarding his resignation from the post of India’s T20I captain. Also, Karim mentioned that Kohli did not hint at leaving his leadership position in ODI cricket.
Furthermore, Virat Kohli expressed a desire to continue as the team’s captain for 50-over contests, according to Karim. Even if Kohli refused to sacrifice his position, he added. The BCCI had the last say in the selectors’ decision.
“Kohli has been fired, and that is correct. He made the news while stepping down as T20I captain, and it’s possible that he’s confirmed his intention to step down as ODI captain as well. This indicated that he intended to keep his ODI captaincy. Virat Kohli’s ODI captaincy could have been jeopardized if he had failed to win an ICC trophy,” Saba Karim said.
ODI Cricket: Several reports claim that Virat Kohli was not consulted by the board of directors. It has to do with the captaincy split approach. Karim, on the other hand, believes that head coach Rahul Dravid would have spoken to the Delhi batter. Kohli has also been the captain of the Indian team for several years. As a result, Karim believes the board would not make such a significant decision. Without first speaking with Kohli.
ODI Cricket: “I am confident that Rahul Dravid or someone from the BCCI would have had a word with Virat Kohli regarding their plans of introducing split captaincy. Dravid has often put emphasis on having clear communication with players. So, when it comes to taking such a big decision, I believe someone would have surely talked to Kohli,” Saba Karim said.
