Game Time: Why replacing Kohli with Rohit Sharma was a bold but harsh move

Earlier this week, Virat Kohli was removed as India’s ODI captain with the national selection committee making Rohit Sharma the sole white-ball leader of the team. In addition to this, Ajinkya Rahane was removed from Test vice-captaincy, a position which was also given to Rohit. This is a seismic change in Indian Cricket, and to talk about it, host Mihir Vasavda is joined by Indian Express’ Sandip G and Devendra Pandey. They discuss why the BCCI took this decision, how Rohit will compare to Virat as a captain, and whether a wounded Virat will be detrimental to the team.
