In most cases, whenever two big pillars of a group grow on and try to contribute so much for a side, the fans from both ends try to build a wall on various platforms; although the persons always admit it as a common word called, “Healthy Competition” among them and that seems to be a constant in every field. Of late, one “healthy contest” isn’t helping the Indian Cricket Team at all; you know if you know.

How did the Atmosphere take shape

Just after achieving a huge win against current World Test Champions, New Zealand, in Mumbai on Monday, December 6, most of the players left the hotel for a little break before taking the flight to South Africa.

Meanwhile, the selection committee consisting of chairman Chetan Sharma were discussing over the squads for South Africa as two future points were catching eyes of everyone around the world; one very obvious about the future of Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane and Ishant Sharma in the Test side whereas the second point was a possible change in ODI captaincy.

By the time, people somehow tried to realize the fact, the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI), in their media release already declared the change of leadership in ODI side but didn’t mention the name of either Virat Kohli or the reason behind this commitment.
