BCCI Board will deal with Virat Kohli's contradictory remark
Mumbai : A day after Indian red-ball skipper Virat Kohli made a contradictory remark during his pre-departure press conference that he was never asked to retain the captaincy of T20 games, Sourav Ganguly refused to comment on the matter and said the BCCI Board will deal with it.
Virat Kohli's statement was in complete contrast to Sourav Ganguly's claim that Virat Kohli was requested to not quit the captaincy for the short format of Cricket.
"No statements, no press conference. We will deal with it, leave it to (the) BCCI," Ganguly told local mediapersons on Thursday.
There were demands that BCCI must do a press conference to clear the matter, but the board refused to make any statement for now.
Kohli's comments on Wednesday brought to fore the underlying tension in his equation with the administrators.
"Whatever was said about the communication that happened about the decision that was made was inaccurate," Kohli had said with obvious reference to Ganguly's statement.
"When I left the T20 captaincy, I had first approached BCCI and intimated them of my decision and laid down my point of view in front of them (office bearers).
"I gave the reasons why I wanted to quit T20 captaincy and my view point was received very nicely. There was no offence, no hesitation and not for once was I told that 'you should not leave T20 captaincy'," he had asserted.
