Team India: The ongoing controversy over the captaincy between Virat Kohli and BCCI does not seem to be stopping. Earlier, in a press conference, Kohli had accused the BCCI of removing him from the captaincy of ODIs without asking him. After this, recently, Chief Selector Chetan Sharma rejected Kohli’s claim. Now a big statement of former Team India coach Ravi Shastri has come out on this matter. Shastri has told how this matter could have been settled earlier. Along with this, he demanded BCCI President Ganguly to make a statement on this matter.
Know what Ravi Shastri said
Ravi Shastri said in an interview to an English newspaper that this matter could have been handled better. If this matter had been discussed earlier between Kohli and the board, then perhaps the matter would not have reached here. Shastri said that now Kohli has put his point in front of everyone and Sourav Ganguly should also keep his point. He said that the truth should come in front of everyone. But for this there should be dialogue between both the parties. It is worth noting that Shastri has been expressing his opinion on the decision to remove Virat Kohli from the captaincy of ODIs in the past as well. Earlier he had praised the decision of BCCI.
