Virat Kohli recently left the captaincy after losing the Test series against South Africa. Earlier, he had taken the decision to step down from the captaincy of the T20 team in September. Subsequently, the BCCI stripped him of the ODI captaincy just before he left for the South Africa tour. Rohit Sharma was given this responsibility in his place. Since then, a dispute has arisen between the BCCI and Virat Kohli regarding the captaincy. Now former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar has also given a big statement on this controversy. He has said that Kohli did not give up the captaincy, he was released.
