It seems Virat Kohli’s days are numbered as far as his captaincy in ODIs and Test is concerned. After deciding to step down as India’s T20I captain after the upcoming T20 World Cup, there are reports that Indian players are miffed with the skipper. Things escalated after India’s World Test Championship (WTC) final loss to New Zealand.
Virat Kohli spoke about ‘lack of intent’ while speaking to media after the match, which didn’t go down well with the players and one of the players also spoke to BCCI secretary Jay Shah about the same.
The sources, while speaking to The Telegraph India, stated that players are done with Virat. “Kohli is losing control. He has lost respect and some of the players are not liking his attitude. He is no more an inspirational leader and he doesn’t earn the players’ respect. Some of them have reached their limits when it comes to dealing with him,” the sources said.
Virat also slammed one of the coaches when he pointed out few issues in his batting technique. “That Kohli failed to play a big innings has also complicated the issue. Recently, one of the coaches offered some suggestions at nets but the captain shot back saying ‘don’t confuse me’. He’s just failed to handle it and it’s showing in his aggressive behaviour,” the sources further added.
