Virat Kohli stepped down as Test captain on Saturday. “Every thing has to come to halt at some stage and for me as Test Captain of India, it’s now,” Kohli said in a statement released on his social media accounts.
Virat Kohli gave up Test captaincy when it came to dropping Rahane. The bond. ❤— Silly Point (@FarziCricketer) January 15, 2022
Past 12 months or so hv been tough for #Kohli. T20WC failure was disappointing, losing series to SA even more so. But biggest setback I believe was not winning WTC final. His desire to excel in Test cricket – as batsman & captain – was always manifest. Probably wants to unburden— Cricketwallah (@cricketwallah) January 15, 2022

When Virat took over as Test captain, India winning a test overseas was an achievement, now if India lose an overseas test series it is an upset. And that's how far he has taken Indian cricket forward, and that will be his legacy. Congratulations on successful reign @imVkohli 👏🏻 pic.twitter.com/My2MOXNwMc— Wasim Jaffer (@WasimJaffer14) January 15, 2022
