'Virat Kohli could have captained Test cricket for so many years now, there was no pressure from BCCI'

 There is no doubt that if Virat Kohli wanted, he could have captained the Indian Test team for some time, but perhaps worried about his batting, Kohli decided to leave the captaincy. Now Virat Kohli will be able to perform better for the Indian team as a batsman without any pressure. Remind you that former Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar also left the captaincy of the Indian team in the year 2000 because it affected his batting and then he continued to play for India for 13 years. 

After Virat Kohli stepped down as Test captain, BCCI and its officials wished him all the best for his future ahead and appreciated what he has done for the country as a captain. At the same time, BCCI treasurer Arun Dhumal said that there was no pressure on Virat Kohli to leave the captaincy of the Test team. He said that he could have captained the Indian Test team for two-three years now. Dhumal was quoted by News18 as saying that there was no pressure on Virat Kohli to step down from the captaincy either from the BCCI side or the selectors. It is completely his decision which we respect, but if he wanted, he could have taken the team further as Test captain for two-three years. 

Let us tell you that after the defeat in the Test series against South Africa, Virat Kohli had announced to step down as the captain of the Test team through social media on Saturday. In his post, he thanked the BCCI and said that he would be grateful for the opportunity he got to lead the country. At the same time, he also thanked former Indian head coach Ravi Shastri and in the last expressed his gratitude to MS Dhoni, saying that Mahi had reposed faith in his captaincy.
