Cricketers reaction on Kohli resigning as India Test skipper
“It’s been a remarkable journey King Kohli! Very few have been able to achieve what you have. Gave your all and played like a true champion each time,” former India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh wrote on Twitter.
“A remarkable journey, career and perseverance which brought us great cricket and entertainment. A brilliant inspiring player of the sport takes a bow,” he wrote.
“Well done Kohli in all your efforts and leading a team with such poise and dignity. Go well!” Mahmood said.
West Indies great Vivian Richards wrote: “Congratulations Kohli on a stunning run as the Indian captain. You can be very proud of what you have achieved so far, and for sure, your name will be up there among the best leaders in world cricket.”
“Although I also am shocked by @imVkohli sudden decision, I respect his call. I can only applaud him for what he has done for world cricket [and] India,” former India batsman Suresh Raina said expressing his disbelief.
“Easily one of the most aggressive and fittest players India has had. Hope he’d continue to shine for India as a player,” he added.
International Cricket Council (ICC) also shared the news on their Twitter handle: “Virat Kohi steps down as India’s most successful Test captain.”
“BCCI congratulates #TeamIndia captain @imVkohli for his admirable leadership qualities that took the test team to unprecedented heights. He led India in 68 matches and has been the most successful captain with 40 wins.”

“It’s been seven years of hard work, toil and relentless perseverance everyday to take the team in the right direction. I have done the job with absolute honesty and left nothing out there,” Kohli said in his statement.
“Everything has come to a halt at some stage and for me as test captain of India, it’s now. There have been many ups and also some downs along the journey, but never has there been a lack of effort or lack of belief,” he said.
