Virat Kohli’s decision to step down as India’s T20 captain after the T20 World Cup in UAE was met with much debate on social media. Many were sad to hear the news while others believed that this was a good decision. Now, actress Anushka Sharma who is married to Virat, has reacted to the news. Anushka shared her husband’s statement on Instagram Stories and added a heart emoji above it.
“Understanding workload is a very important thing and considering my immense workload over the last 8-9 years playing all 3 formats and captaining regularly for the last 5-6 years, I feel I need to give myself space to be fully ready to lead the Indian Team in Test and ODI Cricket. I have given everything to the Team during my time as T20 Captain and I will continue to do so for the T20 Team as a batsman moving forward,” Virat Kohli had said in his statement.
“Of course, arriving at this decision took a lot of time. After a lot of contemplation and discussions with my close people, Ravi bhai and also Rohit, who have been an essential part of the leadership group, I’ve decided to step down as the T20 Captain after this T20 World Cup in Dubai in October. I have also spoken to the secretary Mr Jay Shah and the President of BCCI Mr Sourav Ganguly along with all the selectors about the same. I will continue to serve Indian Cricket and the Indian Team to the best of my ability,” he added.
Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma welcomed a baby girl earlier this year. They have named her Vamika.
