Former BCCI President Sourav Ganguly says, “Didn’t Remove Virat Kohli From Captaincy” and “He Wasn’t…”

When Virat Kohli resigned, Sourav Ganguly, a former captain of the Indian cricket team, took over as president of the BCCI. According to numerous accounts, he was instrumental in Virat Kohli’s dismissal. He now claims, though, that he was not involved in it.

I did not dethrone Virat as captain. I’ve stated this numerous times. Kohli had no desire to lead in Twenty20 Internationals. I advised him to quit from all white-ball cricket formats if he was not interested in leading in Twenty20 internationals once he made that decision. On Dadagiri, Sourav Ganguly stated, “Let there be a white-ball captain and a red-ball captain.”
