While the captaincy controversy was raging, there were reports that Kohli might not play in the ODI series on the tour of South Africa. It was reported that Kohli had asked the BCCI to take a break from the ODI series to spend time with his family. But Kohli himself had made it clear that no such demand had been raised. But now, Kohli’s resignation is being discussed again.
The first ODI of the three-match series between India and South Africa will be played on January 19 at Parl. The second and third ODIs will be played on the 21st and 23rd. With Rohit Sharma stepping down, KL Rahul will lead India in the ODI series.
