Reports suggest Kohli first spoke to India head coach Rahul Dravid about his decision to quit Test captaincy, following which he called up BCCI secretary Jay Shah to inform him about his decision. Kohli had made up his mind to step down after India lost the Cape Town Test.
Earlier, Kohli pointed fingers at Ganguly when he was sacked as the ODI skipper of the side just ahead of the South Africa tour. Rohit Sharma was made the new white-ball captain.
Overall, Kohli ended his tenure with fourth-most wins as Test captain – 40 wins and 11 draws in 68 matches.
