Kohli to step down as T20 captain after World Cup

India captain Virat Kohli today (16) stated that he would step down as skipper of the side in T20Is following the conclusion of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 in October.
 
He had made this announcement in a statement on his social media.
 
Kohli cited the "immense workload" he has been managing for most of the last decade, as an all-format player and as captain, as the reason for his decision.
 
“Understanding workload is a very important thing and considering my immense workload over the last 8-9 years playing all 3 formats, and captaining regularly for the last 5-6 years, I feel I need to give myself space to be fully ready to lead the Indian Team in Test and ODI cricket," Kohli said.
