BCCI Chief Selector Chetan Sharma alleges ego battle with Ganguly cost Kohli the India captaincy

Chetan Sharma also added that Kohli tried to defame Ganguly in the media when he deliberately spoke about the change in captaincy ahead of India's South Africa tour as he felt it was the BCCI President behind his sacking.

In a sting operation carried out by Zee Media, BCCI chief selector Chetan Sharma claimed that ego problems between former BCCI president Sourav Ganguly and former Indian captain Virat Kohli was the main reason why Kohli lost ODI captaincy.

57-year-old Sharma revealed that the Kohli-Ganguly ego war started when Kohli called a press conference ahead of the South Africa tour and told the press that BCCI President never persuaded him not to step down as T20 captain.

The BCCI chief selector made it clear that Ganguly did ask Kohli to not quit captaincy in the shortest format during a video conference meeting where others were present. Sharma said Kohli probably didn't listen or might have missed what Ganguly said.

Chetan Sharma stated that 'Kohli tried to defame Ganguly in the media when he deliberately spoke about the change in captaincy ahead of India's South Africa tour as he felt it was the former Indian skipper behind his ODI captaincy sacking.'

He also mentioned that while "Ganguly did not favour Rohit, he never liked Virat."
