Will it survive or go, Virat Kohli’s ODI captaincy will be decided in a few days


The decision on Virat Kohli’s continuance as ODI captain will be taken this week when the Chetan Sharma-led national selection committee will pick the squad for the upcoming tour of South Africa.

Top officials of the Cricket Board of India (BCCI) say that despite the new form of Covid-19 being found in South Africa, the tour will go as per the pre-scheduled schedule, although they are closely monitoring the situation.

Most of the T20 International matches will be played in the year 2022, including the T20 World Cup to be held in Australia. As per the current schedule, India have only nine ODIs to play in the next seven months, of which six will be played abroad (three in South Africa and three in England).

While one faction in the BCCI is in favor of retaining Kohli as the ODI captain, the other faction is in favor of handing over the captaincy of both T20 and ODI to the same player so that Rohit Sharma can get a chance to prepare well for the 2023 ODI World Cup. It is believed that the final decision in this matter will be taken by BCCI President Sourav Ganguly and Secretary Jay Shah.
