What Kohli wrote in the tweet
Kohli wrote in the letter, ‘I have been extremely fortunate to not only get the opportunity to represent India, but also to captain it to the best of my ability. I would like to thank every single person who supported me on my journey as the captain of the Indian cricket team. I could not have done this without the boys of the team, the support staff, the selection committee, the coach and every Indian praying for our victory. ‘I understand that the work load is very important. I have been playing in all three formats for the last 8-9 years and have also been captaining continuously for 5-6 years. I am feeling that I need a little bit of space to fully prepare myself to captain Team India in Tests and ODIs. As the captain of T20, I have given my everything to the team. I will continue my contribution in the T20 team as a batsman going forward as well.
