- Virat Kohli resigns as T20 captain after World Cup
- MSK Prasad is surprised when Kori decides to abandon the post
- Rohit Sharma is the front runner who will succeed Kohli as India’s next T20 skipper.
Former national selector MSK Prasad feels that the stress of last year’s biobubble life led to Virat Kohli’s decision to resign from India’s T20 captain after the World Cup in the United Arab Emirates.
Kori cites workload management as a reason to give up on the T20I captain. It is not yet known who will take over India’s T20I captain after the World Cup, but Rohit Sharma is a strong candidate to succeed him.
But Prasad is amazed at the timing of Kori’s decision to abandon his post shortly before a major tournament.
“It’s a bit surprising that the decision was announced before the T20 World Cup, but then the stress (and possibly the impact) he had to incur for the life of the bubble and the move from one bubble to another. (There is sex) is clearly visible, and it influenced his thinking, “prased Prasad as said by Sportstar.
“Virat is the man who recorded the 70th century (43 in ODI, 27 in tests) in 10 years, achieved something incredible and set high standards.
“Perhaps Bubble Life influenced his personal performance, and it probably made him make such a decision before the T20 World Cup. Maybe he’s one I didn’t want to burden myself by letting go of the format, “he added.
However, Prasad helped Kori to lead the Indian team without pressure at the T20 World Cup starting October 17th.
“Under Virat’s captain, it was great for T20’s Indian cricket. We have been successful in New Zealand, the West Indies, South Africa and Australia, and this T20 World Cup is under his captain. This will be the first Mega T20I event.
“This decision doesn’t stress him and knows to let go of one format after the tournament, so it won’t put a little strain on him, and it will probably release him a bit at the mega event.” Prasad concludes.
