Virat Kohli stepped down as India’s Test captain last Saturday. He made the decision just  24 hours after the team’s Test series loss to South Africa. Kohli relinquished Test captaincy with immediate effect, having led the team for seven years. Under his reign, the Indian team was at the pinnacle of the Test rankings for 42 months and remained undefeated in all home Test series.

As Virat Kohli officially decided to step down as India’s Test captain, the top brands came forward to give former skipper a pat on the back for doing a marvelous job. Industrialist Anand Mahindra lauded Virat Kohli for his fearless attitude.

“He’s been at the centre of controversies & this decision may evoke varied responses. But to me Virat embodies the fierce, unapologetic & unrelenting competitiveness & desire to win that we have always wanted to see in our sportspersons. May the Force be with him,” read Anand Mahindra’s Tweet.


Taking to Instagram, sportswear brand Puma thanked Virat Kohli for making away games feel like home games. Kohli had signed a 110 crore deal with Puma in 2017 for a period of eight years
