As per the latest reports, team India captain Virat Kohli might be stepping down from the captaincy post soon after the T20 World Cup. Several reliable reports are claiming that Kohli has decided to step down from the post and Rohit Sharma will be taking over the captaincy reins in the limited-overs format.

Kohli will continue as the captain in the test format. His decision to step down from captaincy in the limited-overs format is to make sure that he is fully focused on his batting.

Kohli opines that the captaincy responsibilities are taking a toll on his batting performance and he wishes to take the pressure off him and bat with freedom, which could, in turn, help him yield better results.

Rohit Sharma, who has already proved that he is more than a capable captain by leading his IPL outfit Mumbai Indians to glory on 5 occasions, is set to take over as India's ODI and T20I captain.

Kohli is expected to officially announce his decision very soon. As of now, his focus is on winning the T20 World Cup for India.
