Breaking: Virat Kohli steps down from Test captaincy

Virat kohli 2nd test IND v SA

Virat Kohli has stepped down from Test captaincy on Saturday. He has already stepped down from the limited-overs captaincy.

The Indian batter took to social media to announce the news and thank MS Dhoni for believing in him.

His note says-

It’s been 7 years of hard work, toil and relentless perseverance everyday to take the team in the right direction. I’ve done the job with absolute honesty and left nothing out there. Every thing has to come to a halt at some stage and for me as Test Captain of India, it’s now.

There have been many ups and also some downs along the journey, but never has there been a lack of effort or lack of belief. I have always believed in giving my 120 percent in everything I do, and if I can’t do that, I know it’s not the right thing to do. I have absolute clarity in my heart and I cannot be dishonest to my team.

I want to thank the BCCI for giving me the opportunity to lead my country for such a long period of time and more
importantly to all the teammates who bought into the vision I had for the team from day one and never gave up in
any situation. You guys have made this journey so memorable and beautiful.

To Ravi Bhai and the support group who were the engine behind this vehicle that moved us upwards in Test Cricket consistently, you all have played a massive role in bringing this vision to life. Lastly, a big
thank you to MS Dhoni who believed in me as a Captain and found me to be an able individual who could take
Indian Cricket forward.

Kohli took over the captaincy from MS Dhoni in 2014 and went on to captain the team for 68 matches. He has won 40 matches and has lost 17.

Kohli’s decision comes after India’s series loss against South Africa. India, after winning the first Test at Centurion, lost the next two and eventually, lost the series by 2-1.
