Virat Kohli is known for his massive contribution with his bat over the last decade for India by delivering many match-winning knocks. Apart from being an individual batter, he also came out as an inspirational leader for India across all three formats. Especially in the Test format, Virat is the most successful Indian captain as he recorded 40 wins among 68 matches, with a winning percentage of 58.82.
In the 50-over format, he registered 65 wins among 95 matches with a percentage of 70.43. In the shortest format of the game, he led India in 50 matches where he managed 30 wins with a percentage of 64.58. However, he failed to win any major titles during his tenure and that affected his captaincy tenure. But, after his departure as the Indian captain, Indian Cricket is still dealing with several drawbacks.
Unstable Captaincy options

Virat Kohli was leading Team India in all three formats before he decided to step down from the T20I setup after the conclusion of the last edition of the T20 World Cup. After a disastrous World Cup, the Indian Cricket Board decided to hand over the captaincy of the White-ball format to Rohit Sharma while Virat was still the captain in the longest format of the game. But, after the Test series loss against South Africa at their home, he decided to step down from that captaincy stint also.
However, after that six different players were appointed as captains across three formats. These players are Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah, and Ajinkya Rahane. Even, in the upcoming white-ball series against West Indies, Shikhar Dhawan has been named as the captain while Ravindra Jadeja will be his deputy. Hence, it has to be believed that Team India is clearly having a drawback to replace Kohli with a proper all-format captain still now.
