It looks like Virat Kohli’s problems regarding his attitude with the BCCI will not come to an end soon, mainly after a report by IANS shows that a senior Indian team player complained to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) honchos about the Virat Kholis poor attitude during the previous tour of England.
If sources are true, the revolt against Kohli started within the team a few months ago. It has come to light that many senior players in the dressing room were not happy with the attitude of the ace cricketer Virat Kohli.
Ravichandran Ashwin Named As The Player Who Complained To The BCCI About Virat Kohli: As Reported By IANS
The Indian skipper had reportedly accused the player of not showing enough intent in the World Test Championship final against New Zealand in June this year.
In the report, it is mentioned that some of the sources have mentioned that the player was Tamil Nadu off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin.
This matter seems more serious if the reports turn out to be true as Ashwin was benched in all the four-Test matches against England in the pending five-Test series.
Virat Kohli also deeply wanted Yuzvendra Chahal instead of Ravichandran Ashwin in India’s T20 World Cup squad
If the sources in the report are to be believed then Kohli had a fallout with the selectors for the inclusion of Ashwin in the T20 World Cup squad as the Indian captain wanted leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal for the mega event.
There are also talks that Kohli might be removed from the ODI captaincy as well and vice-captain Rohit Sharma will take the complete charge of white-ball cricket for India.
In the ongoing IPL 2021, Kohli also announced that he would step down from the captaincy role of Royal Challengers Bangalore after leading the team for close to nine seasons.
