Kolkata/Mumbai/IBNS: The Indian cricket board (BCCI) and its president Sourav Ganguly have faced the ire of a section of Twitterati for sacking Virat Kohli as the One Day International (ODI) captain.

As per reports, Kohli was given 48 hours by the board to step down as the ODI skipper.

After he refused to do so, the BCCI in the 49th hour replaced Kohli with his deputy Rohit Sharma, who is already leading India in the shortest format of cricket, i.e. T20.

Netizens react

One Gaurav tweeted, "This is how India treats Virat Kohli and Look at how NZ treats Kane Williamson."

Another user said, "The f****g disrespect to an all time great. 15 hrs post announcement not even a thank you tweet to a captain who has captained Lois in the last 5 years, 3rd most win % in odi history. Deseved way better."

Tweeting a picture of Shah and Ganguly, one user said, "Ppl who ruined Indian cricket."
