India’s Test captain is ‘unhappy’ over Dravid’s ‘stupid’ move to leave
India’s captain Virat Kohli has been the subject of much speculation in the Indian media this week, after he tweeted on Wednesday that the new captain was “unhappy” that the Indian Test captain Dravida Munnetra Jadeja had opted to leave for England.
The comments come in a report from India’s sports daily, The Indian Express, which says Kohli had written a letter to the new England coach, Graeme Swann, after the England captain left the country.
In it, Kohli is quoted as saying, “There is no reason to continue playing, I am very happy with the captain and his decision to leave India.
However, it is an unfortunate decision and he has no right to take it.”
A spokesman for the BCCI told The Associated Press that the BCCU was not aware of any such letter and that no such correspondence had been sent to Kohli.
“The BCCI does not have any communication with any of the players or BCCI staff on this matter,” the spokesman said.
Swann has not commented on the report and the ICC declined to comment.
The report says Kohl, the second-highest Test run scorer in Test history after Dhoni, was unhappy with the “strategy” of Jadeja’s decision to join England.
“Dravida, on the other hand, is very happy to be playing cricket in England and he feels very proud of the fact that he was the first Indian to play Test cricket in the country,” it reads.
She is a fantastic young cricketer and I am sure that India will have many great moments with her. “
There are a lot of great things about Jadeja.
She is a fantastic young cricketer and I am sure that India will have many great moments with her.
But I feel that the strategy is not good for the game.
I wish her the best.” “
I am happy to hear that Jadeja has decided to come back to India, and that she feels very good and happy in England.
I wish her the best.”
Jadeja, the captain of India’s ODI squad, is one of the top players in the world.
She was named the ICC Women’s World Twenty20 Women’s Player of the Year in 2016 and has won four ODIs, including the 2017 Ashes series, and four T20 internationals.
Kohli, the former captain of the South African National Team, played a part in India’s three Tests against England in March and April.
“In terms of the team and the captain’s decision, I can only express my gratitude to him,” Swann said on Wednesday.
“It’s unfortunate that Jadejan was left in the wrong place at the wrong time.
“For Jadeja and for the team, I have to express my thanks to the BCCIC and to the players. “
I can’t speak about what she wants, but I can assure you that we have spoken to her and we have been in touch with her.” “

The Indian team was scheduled to play three T20s against England, Australia and New Zealand this week.
