Controversy erupts in Indian cricket over the Virat Kohli-Sourav Ganguly clash. But without thinking about all this, the captain of Team India’s test side Kohli wants to focus on the field game. Meanwhile, in the midst of the excitement over Kohli’s captaincy, some of the Indian fans feel that Rohit Sharma should be given the leadership of the Tests as well as the Twenty20 and ODIs.
However, many critics say that the upcoming tour of South Africa is going to be a big test for Kohli. If Team India does not produce a positive result here, then the demand to remove Kohli from the leadership will be even stronger. Meanwhile, former Pakistan cricketer Salman Butt says differently. According to him, whatever India’s result against South Africa, it would not be right to snatch Kohli’s Test captaincy. If he is removed, it will be a loss for cricket.
On the other hand, Kohli practiced with the entire team on Saturday (December 18) after a day of rigorous quarantine in South Africa. Kohli was seen smiling during the training session in Johannesburg. There is no end to the discussion about him. One of the best cricketers of this generation has lost the captaincy of India’s colorful costumes. I have had to face a lot of issues with the board.
But looking at this picture of practice, who will say that storms are raging in the mind of Virat Kohli? Who says Team India is under pressure? Kohli smiles with new coach Rahul Dravid and teammates. Arriving in South Africa, he has started preparations for the Test series. Virat’s understanding with outgoing coach Ravi Shastri was different. Rumor has it that Kohli relinquished his captaincy of the T20 team without extending Shastri’s tenure. He also lost the ODI captaincy after the board decided to relinquish the T20I leadership at his request.
However, for now, Virat wants to focus only on Test captaincy. It is clear from watching football or training sessions in Johannesburg. In the absence of regular co-captain Rohit Sharma, Lokesh Rahul remains Kohli’s deputy.
India’s strength and conditioning coach Soham Desai said, “We have done three days of strict quarantine in Mumbai. After a 10 hour flight, we arrived here for another quarantine. Skill training would be risky right now. So everyone is sweating in running and stretching. This game session is quite useful. Everyone on the team loves football. Given other training options, this is what he wants to play again and again. They compete among themselves in football. It helps maintain a happy atmosphere within the team.”
