“No need for him to revive this subject”

According to Butt, Sharma could have chosen not to comment on the whole matter.

Former Pakistan captain Salman Butt has questioned Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) head coach Chetan Sharma for his statements on Virat Kohli regarding the T20I captain line. Before the start of the South Africa Tests, Kohli held a press conference and said no member of the board had asked him not to step down as captain.

This, however, contradicted the statement made by Ganguly earlier in which he said he had personally asked Kohli not to give up the captaincy of the T20I. This showed the lack of communication between the players and the board and also led to a lot of debate.

When asked about it, Sharma backed the BCCI chairman and said the selection committee was shocked by Kohli’s announcement and urged him to continue as skipper of T20I. According to Butt, Sharma could have chosen not to comment on the whole matter. He further added that misunderstandings happen and there is no need to revisit the topic when the team is on an important tour.

Communication problems happen all the time, it’s not that bad: Salman Butt

“There was absolutely no need for him to bring this up again because the team is playing, they won a game and are now looking to win the series. And the same guy you talked about is actually the captain of the game. he team and the person he had a word with is currently recovering from Covid (Sourav Ganguly).

Communication problems happen all the time, it’s not that bad. And when the team wins and is on the pace, these discussions are useless and to bring it back again. If someone asked you that question, you should have moved on,” Butt said on his YouTube channel.

During this time, India picked up a historic victory in the Centurion Test to quickly take the lead in the three-game Test series. The team managed by Virat Kohli exhaled their dominance against the Proteas to win the match by 113 points. If the team manages to win another Test, they will earn their first Test series victory in the country.
