  • Until 2022, the skipper had been leading the Indian team in all three formats; however, his captaincy across all formats was stripped from him.

  • Virat even referred to the tournaments he led the team in, such as the 2017 Champions Trophy where they lost against Pakistan, the 2019 World Cup where they lost to New Zealand in the semi-finals, the 2021 World Test Championship loss against New Zealand, and their elimination in the league stages of the 2021 T20 World Cup. Furthermore, he mentioned that these losses did not affect him and emphasized that he had led the team to the number one spot in the test rankings and won the test championship title five times. He also expressed that he does not regret his full trophy cabinet.

  • During his time as captain, he revealed that there was one person who stood by him during his lean patches was MS Dhoni. He emotionally recounted how Dhoni was the only person who contacted him and supported him during those tough times. This gesture meant the world to him and reinforced the deep bond that existed between the two cricketers. Despite the recent change in captaincy, he emphasized that there was never a sense of awkwardness between him and Dhoni. In fact, he revealed that Dhoni was the one who chose him to lead the team after him, which made the transition of captaincy all the more seamless.
