Virat Kohli’s timing not right, not good to point fingers before big tour: Kapil Dev.

World Cup-winning former India skipper Kapil Dev feels Virat Kohli’s statements that exposed his differences with the BCCI on the issue of captaincy were ill-timed as they created an unsavoury controversy just ahead of a crucial tour to South Africa.

In the pre-departure press-conference in Mumbai on Wednesday, Kohli dismissed as “inaccurate” BCCI President Sourav Ganguly’s statement that the Board had requested him not to step down as T20I captain. The comment exposed the underlying tension between Kohli and the administrators after he was removed as ODI skipper as well earlier this month.
