Virat Kohli resigned as Test skipper of India on Sunday (January 15), thus pulling down the curtains on his captaincy role across the three formats. Earlier in November last year, Virat Kohli had left the T20I captaincy. Since BCCI wanted the same player to lead the team in both ODI and T20Is, the board later asked Virat Kohli to step down as ODI skipper as well.

Now Rohit Sharma, who currently owns the leadership of ODI and T20Is, is highly expected to become India’s new Test skipper. However, a few other names are also popular to get the captain’s role. Under Virat Kohli, there were few players who didn’t manage to rise in the Test format. Here we talk about 3 Indian players who couldn’t flourish in Tests under Virat Kohli’s captaincy.

Hardik Pandya is the first player on this list. During a brief period from 2017 to 2018, Hardik Pandya was a crucial all-rounder in the Test team as well. The right-handed batsman was also part of India’s tour of England and South Africa in 2018. He also gave a few incredible performances with the bat and ball. However, he could not attract much limelight in the longer format consistently.

Later, players like Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin grabbed Pandya’s all-rounder spot in the Test side. Now, Pandya is completely outside selectors’ vision in Test format. So Hardik Pandya is one player whose Test career couldn’t flourish under Virat Kohli’s captaincy.
