When Virat Kohli had been sacked from the ODI captaincy, BCCI President Sourav Ganguly had told the media that he had requested Kohli not to step down from T20I captaincy. But since Kohli didn’t listen to that, the selectors found it illogical to have separate captains in white-ball cricket.

However, Virat Kohli denied the claims in a presser and said that there were no requests made. He also stated that he was told about the captaincy sacking just 90 minutes before discussing the Test team. This sparked a rift between Kohli and the board and it will be interesting to see how this story further unfolds.
