Indian skipper Virat Kohli on Monday said that he always wanted to do his best as the T20I captain and now it was time for the next lot to take this team forward.
Kohli is leading the Indian side for the last time in T20Is as the Men in Blue locked horns against Namibia in the ongoing World Cup.
"It's been an honour for me, I was given the opportunity and I tried to do my best. But it's also time to create some space and move forward. I've been immensely proud of how the team has played," said Kohli after the toss.
"Now I think it's time for the next lot to take this team forward. Obviously, Rohit(vice-captain) is here and he's overlooking things for a while now," he added.
While Rohit Sharma will obviously handle the cricket team, cricket fans are still saddened as Kohli leaves captaincy. Twitter today has been flooded with netizens thanking Kohli for his contribution to the Indian cricket team over the years.
Here's what people are saying. Have a look.
India was knocked out of the World Cup on Sunday after Afghanistan failed to defeat New Zealand.
