New Delhi. Virat Kohli has left the captaincy of Indian Test cricket after India’s humiliating defeat in the Test series against South Africa. He has tweeted this information. He said that I always want to contribute 120% in everything, if I am not able to do that then it will be wrong. I am very clear about this and I cannot be dishonest with my team.

He said, “I worked hard every day for 7 years to take the team in the right direction. I did my work with utmost sincerity and left no stone unturned in it. Everything has to stop at some point or the other and this is the time for me to stop as the captain of the Test team. There have been many ups and downs during this entire journey, but my efforts and faith have never waned.”

He said, “I always want to contribute 120% in everything, if I am not able to do that then it will be wrong. I am very clear about this and I cannot be dishonest with my team.”

The former India captain said, “I want to thank BCCI for giving me the opportunity to lead my country for so long. Along with this, I would also like to thank my colleagues who believed in my vision from day one and did not lay down arms under any circumstances. You have made my journey memorable and beautiful.”

He said, “Ravi bhai and the support group have been the engines of this vehicle, who have continuously taken Test cricket higher. You all have played an important role in turning my vision into reality. Lastly, many thanks to MS Dhoni, who has put a lot of trust in me as a captain. He considered me worthy that I can take Indian cricket forward.
