Virat Kohli has stepped down as Indian cricket team’s Test captain. The announcement comes a day after South Africa gained a series-clinching win in the third Test against India at Newlands.

Here’s what he said in his statement on Twitter.

Last year, Kohli had stepped down as the T20I captain and then he was removed as the ODI leader as the selectors wanted one captain for the white-ball format.

Virat Kohli’s biggest win in the longest format came during 2018-19 as India won its first Test series Down Under. Under his captaincy, India also reached the finals of the World Test Championship (WTC).

It needs to be pointed that Kohli has not registered a century in international cricket since November 2019. He last scored a ton against Bangladesh in the day-night Test at the Eden Gardens.
