breaking news Virat Kohli quits as Test captain, says he can’t be ‘dishonest’ to team if he can’t give 120%

Virat Kohli resigned as India’s Test cricket captain on Saturday following a 1-2 away loss to South Africa on Friday. In a statement announcing his resignation, Kohli said: “I’ve always believed in giving my 120% in everything I do, and I can’t do that, it’s not the right thing to do. I have absolute clarity in my heart and I cannot be dishonest to my team.”

Kohli has had a turbulent time lately, starting with his unceremonious dismissal as India’s one-day international cricket captain. More recently, he was in the spotlight after reacting furiously to a controversial DRS decision that favored South Africa in the third and final Test match. His behavior on the pitch drew criticism from a few former cricketers, some of whom had played alongside Kohli for the national team.
