Arun Dhumal - No player complained about Virat Kohli, written or verbal

On September 16, Kohli announced his decision to step down from the T20I captaincy

Since Virat Kohli announced his resignation as India's T20 captain, innuendos and speculations have been rife about him losing the dressing room. Multiple reports have claimed the same and recently a report surfaced that several senior players complaint about Kohli's style of captaincy post the World Test Championship final. The report further claimed that Kohli had given a dressing down to many players which they subsequently be taken with BCCI Secretary Jay Shah. 

However, BCCI Treasurer Arun Dhumal has rubbished those claims by stating no such things had happened. 

"The media must stop writing this rubbish. Let me say this on the record that no Indian cricketer has made any complaint to the BCCI - written or verbal. The BCCI can't keep answering every false report that keeps appearing. The other day, we saw some reports saying there will be changes in India's World Cup squad. Who said that?" BCCI treasurer Arun Dhumal told TOI on Wednesday.

"Virat himself will make the announcement. He is of the view that he needs to concentrate on his batting and go back to becoming what he's always been - the best batsman in the world. The decision to quit (white-ball) captaincy is his alone."

On September 16, Virat Kohli released a statement on his social media handle, announcing his resignation from the T20 captaincy while expressing his willingness to continue leading the Indian team in the other two formats. Subsequently, Kohli informed about his decision to step down from Royal Challengers Bangalore captaincy after the IPL 2021. 

"The media asked me if the BCCI had taken a decision and I said no because that was true - the BCCI had not taken any decision or even discussed it. Eventually, Virat took his own decision and conveyed it to the BCCI and that was his call. Today, the same media is saying players complained to the BCCI. So, on behalf of the board, I can tell you, there have been no complaints. Is there any confusion?" Dhumal said.
