Former Australia cricketer Brad Hogg has reacted to the removal of Virat Kohli as India’s ODI captain. Hogg said different captains for red-ball and white-ball cricket would reduce the burden on cricketers in international cricket. Hogg said the change would help Kohli improve his performance with the bat. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has taken the world by surprise when it named Rohit Sharma as the captain of the ODI and T20 squads for the upcoming tour of South Africa. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
“I know this is a good thing. Kohli should accept it and change the whole situation positively. The focus should be on acting as captain for the Test team. Rohit Sharma can focus on the team he wants in white-ball cricket. Virat Kohli can focus on Test cricket. It puts a lot of pressure on them, ”Hogg said on his YouTube channel.
“Rohit Sharma has to worry about the white-ball atmosphere as well as all the sponsorship and other commitments off the field. But Virat Kohli will not have anything like that .. I think it will be good for Kohli. His performance has dropped in the last two years when he was under pressure to captain all three teams. ” He said. Hogg skipped about the dressing room tension in view of the recent developments around Kohli and Sharma.
