Chetan Sharma about Virat Kohli & Sourav Ganguly

The Virat Kohli vs BCCI was much talked about in late 2021. Ahead of the 2021 T20 World Cup, Kohli announced that he will resign as the T20I captain. After the T20 WC, India went on a tour to South Africa for three Tests and ODIs each. Chetan Sharma-led BCCI selection committee sacked Kohli as the ODI captain.

A debate started with many feelings. Kohli presented his side of the story, that he was not informed well in advance about his sacking. He was still eager to lead in the longer formats. Sourav Ganguly didn't like the story. He was the BCCI chief then. He revealed that he had insisted Kohli reconsider his decision of quitting as T20I captain. 

Chetan Sharma about Virat Kohli:

In an exclusive sting operation carried out by Zee Media, BCCI chief selector Chetan Sharma has opened up in extent on this and made a big claim. He made it clear that Ganguly had asked Kohli to not quit as T20I captain in a video conference but the latter probably didn't listen or know about it. The former Indian cricketer added that 'Kohli tried to defame Ganguly in the media' during his press conference (by deliberately speaking about the change in captaincy) ahead of the SA tour as he felt it was the former Indian skipper behind his ODI captaincy sacking.

He feels the Indian star batter didn't take the change in the right way. In addition, he opined that the press conference changed the equation between Kohli and Ganguly. The former player made it clear that the former BCCI chief wasn't inclined towards Rohit Sharma as such but wasn't simply in favor of Kohli. 

Not only this, but Chetan also dropped bombshells regarding India's fitness test in the sting operation.
