Indian Cricket Team – Reaching a dead end

Indian cricket team had an unremarkable tour of South Africa as they lost the Test and ODI series. Former Pakistan captain Rashid Latif spoke his mind. He feels that the end of Kohli’s captaincy has affected the team’s performance. He stated ‘Whoever’s plan this was, it backfired’.

It alleged that there has been a plan to remove Kohli as the team captain. It began a month after the skipper announced he is stepping down as the T20 captain. BCCI president Sourav Ganguly revealed that he and the board members had requested Kohli to reconsider his decision in the T20I format. Kohli however denied having any communication.  He also added that he was informed about the ODI captaincy removal 90 minutes before the team selection meeting.

Chetan Sharma, the chief selector,  reiterated Ganguly’s words. And three weeks later, Kohli stepped down from Test captaincy as well.

Rashit Latif commented on his YouTube channel ‘Cricket Baaz with Waheed Khan’. “It has reached a dead end now. And there is nothing in a dead end. No way out. Whoever’s plan this was, it just did not work out. It was wrong and it backfired. The fact is when a player is leading a team for near about 10 years, his roots are deeply instilled in the team. You shouldn’t break that. It sets a bad example,” he stated.
