Virat Kohli who is regarded as one of the best batsmen in the world and one of the most successful Indian captains has decided to part ways with T20 Internationals captaincy after the upcoming T20 World Cup 2021. However, Since then there have been several reports claiming that things are not very good inside the Indian dressing room.
Meanwhile, according to the latest reports it is being suggested that things started getting serious inside the dressing room after the recent World Test Championship (WTC) final defeat against team New Zealand.
Notably, talking about the loss with the media, Virat Kohli spoke about the ‘lack of intent’ of the Indian team. This move by the skipper didn’t go down well with at least one senior player on the team. Also, reports suggest that that senior cricketer even contacted the BCCI secretary Jay Shah about this statement by Kohli.
“Virat Kohli is losing control. He has lost respect”: Sources
The source during a chat with The Telegraph India has said that several players in the team are not happy with the attitude of the Indian captain and he is no more an inspirational leader in the side.
“Kohli is losing control. He has lost respect and some of the players are not liking his attitude. He is no more an inspirational leader and he doesn’t earn the players’ respect. Some of them have reached their limits when it comes to dealing with him,” the sources said.
Also, it has been told that when one of the coaches tried to give some suggestions to Virat Kohli for his batting Kohli shot back at the coach stating’ don’t confuse me.
“That Kohli failed to play a big innings has also complicated the issue. Recently, one of the coaches offered some suggestions at nets but the captain shot back saying ‘don’t confuse me’. He’s just failed to handle it and it’s showing in his aggressive behaviour,” the sources further added
Meanwhile, the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) captain is currently in United Arab Emirates (UAE) for the second phase of the Indian Premier League (IPL) and once again he will be hoping for a better outcome just like the first phase of the marquee event. Notably, soon after that Virat Kohli will be participating in T20 World Cup 2021 which will be his last tenure as the T20I captain.
