BCCI chief selector Chetan Sharma dropped another bomb when he said that Virat Kohli was requested to stay back as T20I captain when he informed the selectors during the meeting on the eve of the T20 World Cup.
Speaking to the media after announcing the ODI squad for series against South Africa, Chetan contradicted Virat Kohli's statement on communication with BCCI over T20I captaincy, and said, "It was told to him by everybody available in the meeting.
All convenors were there, board officials were there. Everybody said that. Who will not say that when you hear such a news? You will be in shock. What will be your instant reaction? "It was a matter of the World Cup. We thought let's talk after the World Cup. We told Virat the World Cup is upon us, and everybody requested let's talk after the World Cup."
Earlier Virat had told exactly the opposite to media, contradicting BCCI boss Sourav Ganguly's statement that he had requested him to continue as captain of the T20I team
