BCCI treasurer Arun Dhumal has dismissed reports of Virat Kohli stepping down as limited-overs skipper after the T20 World Cup, calling it a 'media creation.' Earlier, there were reports that suggested that Kohli might hand over the reins to Rohit Sharma to focus on his batting. This is all rubbish. Nothing as such is going to happen. This is all media creation," Arun Dhumal told NDTV.
"BCCI has not met or discussed anything on this issue," he added.
Kohli has led India in 45 T20Is and 95 ODIs, having won 27 matches in the shortest format, while in the 50-over format, he has tasted victories on 65 occasions.
Kohli's next focus will be on leading India in the T20 World Cup. India are yet to win a single ICC trophy under his leadership, although they have made it to a final on a couple of occasions - the 2017 Champions Trophy and the most recent one being the 2021 World Test Championship (WTC) final.
They will take on arch-rivals Pakistan in their first match of the tournament in Dubai on October 24. India recently announced their squad for the marquee event with the surprise inclusion of Ravichandran Ashwin. 2007 World T20 winning captain MS Dhoni was named the mentor for the tournament.
