The press conference by Kohli on Wednesday depicted the underlying tension between him and the office-bearers.

A few days ago, current BCCI president, Sourav Ganguly had said that the selectors had requested Kohli not to step down from the captaincy of the shortest format. He had also added that the cricketer was informed of the removal of his ODI captaincy in advance.
