Ex-England spinner Monty Panesar’s statement, failure to leave Virat Kohli for failure
India’s evergreen RPG Virat Kohli was elected the full-time captain of the team in early 2017, replacing former wicketkeeper batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Since then, he has been handling the captaincy in all three formats of cricket. After Virat’s return to India after the first match of the Border-Gavaskar series against Australia, vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane assumed the captaincy in the Test. The team performed brilliantly under his captaincy, capturing the Test series for the second time in Australia. Team coach Ravi Shastri also credited Virat Kohli for this historic win. India now has to play two big ICC tournaments in their home in the next one or two years. Meanwhile, former England team spinner Monty Panesar has made a big statement regarding Virat’s captaincy.
The former left arm spinner has spoken to ‘Sportskeeper’ saying, “If Virat Kohli does not win any of the ODIs or T20 Worlds in India as a captain, then he will have to relinquish the captaincy. According to Monty Panesar, “If it doesn’t happen, there will be a lot of questions about his captaincy.” He is captaining well, but he will have to put one of the titles in the World Cup at home. ”

Under the captaincy of Virat, Team India has performed brilliantly in the World Test rankings so far and the Lords of England are close enough to make a place compared to the final to be held on the field, but the team has also captained them once in ICC tournament. Has not won, has not been successful. India last won an ICC title as Champions Trophy in 2013 under the captaincy of former wicketkeeper batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Under Virat’s captaincy, the team missed out on winning the Champions Trophy in 2017 and the ODI World Cup in 2019.
On India’s historic Border-Gavaskar Test series win in Australia, Monty Panesar said, “It’s an interesting debate.” I believe that when Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahey Kosifani were given the responsibility, they have done a fantastic job. Now it depends on Virat Kohli how he shows both the leaders. Now he will have a real test of his captaincy. “
