All players work equally hard in any sport. It doesn’t matter if it’s me or mine. In it, the whole team is representing their country, and therefore the goal of every player is to perform well for their country and win. Whether it’s cricket or any sport, the captain is in the lead role. Under his leadership, the entire team is playing its role. Even without complete guidance, the captain knows exactly which way the game should go. Therefore, captaincy is considered very important in any sport.
The main task of the captain is to keep the players united and play the match in the right direction without any miscommunication and win it.
Virat Kohli put the team together and made the right decision at the right time. Sometimes he succeeds, sometimes not. We all know that India lost the recent match against South Africa. Disappointed, Virat Kohli resigned as captain. His decision has been met with criticism from many corners of the globe.
Recently, Gautam Gambhir issued a big statement on the reshuffle regarding the captaincy in the Indian team. Gambhir believes that captaincy is not the innate right of any player. On Virat Kohli’s decision to step down as Test captain, Gambhir said, “Mahendra Singh Dhoni handed over his legacy to Virat Kohli. Well, now instead of Virat, someone else will take over the responsibility of the team. It will continue like this.”
If we see this through the sportsman’s perception, it is very true what did he say. It is not a big deal that Kohli left the captainship. The show will go on and matches will be continued.
From January 19, a series of 3 ODIs will be played between India and South Africa. It will be Virat Kohli’s first series after being stripped of the ODI captaincy. The 33-year-old Virat had left the captaincy of the T20 team in September. At the same time, before the tour of South Africa, the BCCI replaced Kohli with Rohit Sharma as the captain of the ODI team. Rohit was already commanding the T20 team. In such a situation, the captaincy of ODI will also do the same now. However, Rohit is not part of the ODI series against South Africa due to injury. In his place, KL Rahul will take over the command of the team in this series.
