Pragyan Ojha Reacts To Team India’s ODI Captaincy Controversy

India’s Test captain Virat Kohli spoke to the media for the first time since he was replaced as India’s ODI captain by Rohit Sharma.

A virtual press conference was held before Kohli and his team was set to go to South Africa. He answered questions about the captaincy swap between him and Rohit in the white-ball game.

Kohli said things that didn’t line up with the BCCI’s version of events, which made the controversy even more heated.

Pragyan Ojha, a former Indian cricketer, said he hoped that Team India would put the controversy behind them and focus on their work again.

“Unnecessary! Hope the focus will be back on work. #IndianCricket,” Ojha wrote in Hindi on social media platform Koo.

Kohli said that the BCCI notified him of the skipper change 90 minutes before the Test team for the South Africa trip was to be selected.

“I was contacted one-and-a-half hours before selection for Tests. The chief selector discussed with me the Test squad. Before the call ended, I was told that the five selectors have decided that I won’t be ODI captain anymore. There was no prior communication about this,” said Kohli.

“I gave the reasons why I wanted to quit T20 captaincy and my viewpoint was received very nicely. There was no offense, no hesitation, and not for once was I told that ‘you should not leave T20 captaincy’,” Kohli added.

The statement made by Kohli contradicts the one made by BCCI president Sourav Ganguly.
