Virat Kohli announced on Thursday that he will step down as captain of Team India's Twenty20 team after the Twenty20 World Cup. Virat clarified that he was taking this decision due to increasing workload. However, he will continue to captain the ODI and Test teams in the future and will only play his role as a batsman in the Twenty20s.

Discussions are already going on that after Virat, the captaincy of the Twenty20 team will go to Rohit Sharma. However, shocking news is coming out that Virat had proposed to the selection committee to remove Rohit from the post of vice-captain. However, Virat's proposal backfired on him.

According to the news agency 'Bhasha', there is a big reason behind Virat's decision. The agency said, "There is a problem with communication with Virat. The door of MS Dhoni's room was open 24 hours a day. Players could go to him at any time to communicate. I used to play video games with him and discuss cricket. But it was getting very difficult to contact Virat off the field. "

At the same time, Virat had proposed to the selection committee to remove Rohit from the post of vice-captain. According to Virat, 34-year-old Rohit should be replaced by a young player. The agency also said that Virat wanted to make either Rishabh Pant or Lokesh Rahul the vice-captain.

"The BCCI did not like Virat's approach. After Virat, it is certain that Rohit will be the captain of Team India's Twenty20 team. Rishabh, Lokesh and Jaspreet Bumrah could be the vice-captains.

If the Delhi Capitals win the IPL 2021, then Pant will be in lead in the race for the vice-captaincy of Team India. " Jaspreet can also be a surprise package, '' the sources said.
