The controversy surrounding Virat Kohli’s sacking from ODI captaincy is heated up. Before leaving for South Africa Kohli explosively spoke about his removal and his rumored rift with Rohit Sharma.
He also made it clear that Ganguly never requested him to continue as T20I skipper as claimed by the BCCI President. Mohammad Kaif, who played under Ganguly, has reacted on the whole matter.
He feels Rahul Dravid will tackle the situation as he is calm and composed.
“Lately, Indian cricket has been in the news for all the wrong reasons. Indian captain Virat Kohli’s press conference before leaving for South Africa created a storm and Sourav Ganguly too got dragged into it,” Kaif wrote in his column for India.com.
“Thankfully for Indian cricket, they had a trouble-shooter in place. We know him by the name of Rahul Dravid, the new Head Coach of the Indian cricket team. Having played with and under Rahul Bhai, I can safely tell you that if there was ever a man to handle the ship of the Indian team, it is him.”
