Twitter exploded after Virat Kohli announced that he will step down as India's T20I captain after the ICC T20 World Cup in UAE and Oman in October-November this year.

“Every thing has to come to a halt at some stage and for me as Test captain of India, it’s now. There have been many ups and also some downs along the journey but there has never been lack of effort or lack of belief,” Kohli wrote in a statement which he posted on Twitter, taking everyone by surprise.

Netizens flooded Twitter with admiration for Kohli both as a batsman and a captain, who has been leading India in all three formats ever since MS Dhoni decided to step down as the limited-overs skipper in 2017.

The 33-year old had recently quit as T20 captain and was later sacked at ODI captain by the BCCI.
