India suffered a big loss yet again in an ICC event. This time they lost the final against Australia in the World Test Championship 2023 final. They lost the game by a huge margin of 209 runs. Former cricketers and fans were not happy with India’s performance in the WTC 2023 final.
Sourav Ganguly in a recent interview opened up on why Virat Kohli left captaincy. On asking about why Virat Kohli left the captaincy, Sourav Ganguly said it was an unexpected call from Kohli and only Virat Kohli can answer why he left the captaincy.
As quoted by India Today, “It was unexpected for us also after the South Africa tour. Only Virat Kohli can reveal why he left the captaincy. There is no point talking about this now.”
He also said, “The selectors needed a captain after Virat left and Rohit was the best that time. He had won five IPL trophies and done well at the international level as well. He was the best option.”
“I have complete faith in Rohit. He and MS Dhoni have won five IPL titles each. Winning the IPL isn’t easy because it’s a tough tournament. Winning the IPL is more difficult than winning a World Cup as there are 14 matches after which you take part in the playoffs. In the World Cup, it takes only 4-5 matches for a place in the semis. In the IPL, it takes 17 matches for you to become champions”, Sourav Ganguly said as quoted by India today.
