Former India player Chandu Borde believes that Virat Kohli has decided to step down as captain of the Indian T20 team IPL The franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore will focus solely on batting.

Kohli recently announced that he will step down as India’s T20 captain after the World T20 in Oman and the United Arab Emirates in October-November.

“See what happens is that a lot of good cricketers think what is good for them because they must have thought for themselves. I’m sure he thinks he might be able to do better if he stays away from the lead in this T20 (format) or something,” Borde told reporters on Tuesday.

The former India team manager, who was also a national selector, was speaking after being felicitated by former BCCI president Sharad Pawar at the “Salute to the legend Chandu Borde” ceremony.

“Because as a captain and also as a player, it is quite (the challenge) that you want to perform better and better and you play under pressure, that pressure will go away and then he will perform better. “

During the event, both Pawar and Borde recounted several anecdotes from Indian cricket. Three days after announcing his decision to step down from the Indian T20 captaincy, Kohli also stepped down as the captain of Royal Challengers Bangalore after the 2021 IPL season.
