Former India captain Kapil Dev says Virat Kohli should have spoken to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and selectors before taking the decision to step down as captain of the team’s T20 format after the T20 World Cup. Kohli took this decision to manage the workload which was on him for the last five-six years.
Kapil said that everyone should have full respect for Kohli’s honesty. He also said that he failed to understand why Kohli did not consult the board.
“I think we should respect Kohli’s honesty about his decision that he no longer wants to be the captain,” Kapil said. Mahendra Singh Dhoni did the same. Though a board usually tells a player what to do but nowadays players take their own decision, I fail to understand it.
