India under the captaincy of Kohli
If we talk about T20 International, then Kohli’s record has been quite good. Under Kohli’s captaincy, the Indian team has played 45 matches, in which the team has won 27, while the team has to face defeat in 14. Two matches were inconclusive. The win percentage under his captaincy has been 65.11. Under his captaincy, India will play any tournament of T20 International for the first time next month and in the bilateral series too, the Indian team under Kohli has performed very well.
Very disappointing performance in IPL
The biggest drawback of Kohli’s captaincy has been that till now his team has not won a single major tournament in any format, whether it is national or international. Kohli is the captain of Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL, where his record is not so great, while under his captaincy world-class players like de Villiers, Chahal play for Bangalore, even before this dangerous T20 players like Gayle were part of this team. have been Despite all this, Kohli has not been able to touch success in the last ten years. Under Kohli’s captaincy, Bangalore has played a total of 132 matches so far in the last 10 seasons (including IPL-14), where his team has tasted victory in 60 matches, while his team has lost 65 matches. And the win percentage under his captaincy has been 48.04.
Rohit Sharma is the first choice for captaincy
After leaving the captaincy of Kohli, it is almost certain that the command of T20 will now be in the hands of Rohit Sharma. Rohit’s captaincy record in T20 has been very good. In T20 International, Rohit has captained 19 matches and the team has won 15 and if we talk about IPL, then Mumbai has won this title five times under Rohit’s captaincy.
