Virat Kohli’s childhood coach Rajkumar Sharma made some comments on the controversy between BCCI President Sourav Ganguly and Virat Kohli which has been brewing for the past week.
There’s a lot going on currently in the Indian team after Virat Kohli was removed as the skipper of the Indian team ahead of their tour to the Rainbow Nation.
Just before departing to South Africa, Kohli made some shocking revelations in a press conference. Kohli said that he was informed just a couple of hours before the squad was revealed for the coming tour.
It does not end here. Kohli also contradicted Sourav Ganguly’s statements that he was asked not to quit the captaincy of the Indian Team in T20Is.
Kohli also added that his decision to quit as the captain of the Indian team in the shortest format of the game was taken in a good way by the BCCI officials.
“This is definitely shocking and this is news to me as well that Virat Kohli said something like this in the press conference. What comment should I give, about why it has happened and why such a thing should not have happened,” Kohli’s childhood coach Rajkumar Sharma said on the Khelneeti podcast.
“I don’t want to speak much on the subject because it’s directly linked with Virat. But I feel that it could’ve been better if such strong words weren’t used from both sides. Team is doing good, I don’t think we need a needless controversy,” Sharma added.
Rajkumar Sharma added that there should be a transparency between the team and the board so that controversies like this don’t repeat in the future.
“This is something unusual I have heard, I didn’t see Virat’s press conference as well. This communication gap should not have happened. According to me, there should be transparency between them and I don’t know why this has happened or why such a communication gap was there,” Sharma said.
The Indian cricket team departed on Thursday morning and reached Johannesburg for the three match test series starting on Boxing Day. Rohit Sharma has been ruled out of the red ball series but will join the team on January 19 to play the three match ODI series.
