We Want A New Captain: Indian Cricket Lovers On Twitter Lash Out At Kohli The Captain, Demand Hitman To Lead

As the Indian cricket team lost yet another final of an ICC event, Indian Cricket Lovers on Twitter went crazy for the role of captain of Virat Kohli. The New Zealand cricket team beat India in the ICC World Trials (WTC) final to become the tournament’s first winner on Wednesday in Southampton.

The victory was historic for the BlackCaps as they managed to become the first team in the world to win the ICC World Test Championship. For the Indian team, it was a rather forgetful event. After dominating the Test Championship points table for the majority portion of the tournament, the Indian team succumbed to pressure from the Kiwis and choked on reserve day to lose yet another ICC trophy.

Indian Cricket Lovers attacks the captaincy of Virat Kohli

In a match marred by rain for nearly 3 days, the Indian cricket team could not capitalize on the odds and let go of the match. The Indian batsmen were dead wrong as they failed to score the reserve day and advance the Indian innings in what turned out to be the best day to beat any available day.

Ultimately, the Kiwis were left with a goal of 139 runs on the final day and the Kiwis chased him comfortably at the end. Captain Kane Williamson led the chase forward as he smashed through a scintillating half-century and had a crucial partnership with Ross Taylor towards the end.

Indian skipper Virat Kohli also made some bad calls which led to the demolition of the Indian team as the Indian skipper could not prove he was perfect with his bowling changes and field placements. In addition, Virat has so far not won any ICC trophies since he was appointed Indian captain of the limited overs in 2017. He has also been leading the Indian test team since 2014.

Another failure in an ICC event left fans bewildered by Virat Kohli’s captaincy and Indian fans blasted him on Twitter and demanded a change of captain. The biggest name coined by Indian fans was Rohit Sharma. Rohit was the most successful captain in IPL history with 5 IPL titles to his name as captain and 6 titles as a player.
