Indian test captain and former ODI captain Virat Kohli to pull out of the ODI series against South Africa in January. Last week Kohli was sacked by the Board for Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) and veteran Rohit Sharma was named the new white-ball captain to lead the Men in Blue.

However, there is not any official announcement from the BCCI, or Kohli himself. But as per reports, Kohli has asked the BCCI to not consider him for the ODI series against South Africa, because he will be celebrating his daughter’s first birthday.

Is Virat Kohli upset?

Reasonably, he has every right to be upset, snatching the captaincy from him without giving any valid reason and not a word about him when appointing Rohit as the new captain, the BCCI sidelined him at a time when there are two world cups in the next two years.

However, ever since BCCI have sacked Virat from the ODI captaincy, there has not been any statements made by the modern-great batsman.

Recently, the BCCI president Sourav Ganguly had said that there cannot be two white-ball captains as it will create more tension in the squad during the selection of the players. Ganguly also confirmed that it was Virat Kohli who offered his stepping down from the T20 captaincy and the board tried to convince him to keep his captaincy.

Many reports are also suggesting that the relationship between the board and Kohli is not so good these days. Ever since the departure of former head coach Rav Shastri and the arrival of Rahul Dravid as the new coach, there are rumours that a group of players from the current squad has been vocal against Virat Kohli and his decisions as captain.

India will play a three-match ODI series against South Africa in Rohit Sharma captaincy from January 19 to 23. The squad is not announced yet.

India Vs New Zealand T20I series

The Uttar Pradesh Cricket Association (UPCA) has sacked the curator of Lucknow’s Ekana Cricket Stadium after he prepared a vicious turner that produced a low scoring game for the second T20 between India and New Zealand on Sunday.

Indian T20I captain Hardik Pandya was irate and did not mince words as he termed the Lucknow wicket “shocker of a pitch”.

The low-scoring affair saw the Black Caps restricted to 99 for eight in 20 overs while India managed to barely scrape past the line with one ball to spare.

In a statement, the UPCA said the curator has been removed and replaced by Sanjeev Kumar Agarwal, an experienced curator, adding that they will turn things around in a month’s time.

Elaborating on why the Lucknow wicket turned out to be a rank turner, the UPCA said that the pitch had already been host to a ton of domestic cricket, which was mostly played on all the centre wickets ahead of the India-New Zealand game.

They said the curator should’ve left one or two strips for an international game, adding that the surface was overused and bad weather didn’t give the curators enough time to prepare a fresh wicket.

A report quoting a UPCA source revealed that the new curator, who has prepared wickets in Bangladesh in the past before being removed in October last year, has been tasked to set things right as far as pitch-making is concerned. He will work closely with veteran BCCI curator Taposh Chatterjee.

Indian skipper Hardik Pandya has been unhappy with the surfaces on offer in the first two T20Is of the series so far.

In a statement after the game, Hardik expressed his anger at the curators and termed the Lucknow pitch as a shocker of a wicket. Hardik said that while he’s all for competitive wickets for other formats, however, the surfaces on offer during the first two games were not made for T20 cricket.
