However, the BCCI removed him from the ODI captaincy and said that Rohit Sharma would lead the team. BCCI President Sourav Ganguly has spoken on the issue and said, "It's a decision made jointly by the BCCI and the selectors. Actually, the BCCI had asked Virat to continue as T20I captain, but he refused. And the selectors did not think it was appropriate to have two different captains for two white-ball forms, "said Ganguly.

Now there are reports that Virat Kohli may miss the ODI series against South Africa.
