Sourav Ganguly has once again spoken openly on the captaincy dispute with Virat Kohli. He said that Virat Kohli did not want to give up the captaincy of the ODI and Test team. Whereas he wanted no split captaincy in white ball cricket and only one captain in T20 and ODI cricket.
Former BCCI President Sourav Ganguly has once again spoken openly on the captaincy dispute with Virat Kohli. Ganguly said that he did not remove Kohli from the captaincy. Virat Kohli had decided to step down from the captaincy of the shortest format after the T20 World Cup 2021 and had expressed his desire to take charge of the ODI and Test teams, but the BCCI was unhappy with Kohli's decision. Ganguly said that he had told Kohli to leave the captaincy of the ODI after T20. He wanted there to be only one captain in T20 and ODI.
Sourav Ganguly said on a video of the 10th season of the reality show Dadagiri Unlimited that I did not remove Virat Kohli from the captaincy. I have said this many times. He did not want to lead the T20 team. So I told him that if you do not want to lead T20 then you should leave the captaincy of the entire white ball cricket. Let there be one white ball and one red ball captain.
In fact, before leaving for the South Africa tour, a statement by Kohli had created a stir. Ganguly was saying that he was removed from the ODI captaincy only after talking to Kohli. Whereas Virat Kohli's statement was the opposite. Kohli had said that when the Test team was being selected for the South Africa tour, he was called to the meeting.
Kohli said that there was a discussion on the Test team with the selectors, but after the meeting, it was decided to remove me from the captaincy of the ODI team. I agreed to the decision of the selectors. After this, the controversy increased and Kohli left the Test captaincy after the South Africa tour and then Rohit Sharma was made the captain of all three formats.
