Media reports were recently doing the rounds that two Indian cricketers had complained to the BCCI over Virat Kohli's captaincy. The reports claimed that two batsmen had spoken to BCCI secretary Jay Shah about the same. The cricket board has now refuted the claims and stated that the BCCI played no role in Kohli's resignation.

BCCI treasurer Arun Dhumal was quoted as saying by TOI, "The media must stop writing this rubbish. Let me say this on the record that no Indian cricketer has made any complaint to the BCCI - written or verbal. The BCCI can't keep answering every false report that keeps appearing. The other day, we saw some reports saying there will be changes in India's World Cup squad. Who said that?" He further added, "This kind of reporting harms Indian cricket more than anything else. We can understand if senior journalists - who have followed the game for a very long time and tracked it so devotedly - believe the Indian team should do this or do that. That's an opinion and we respect that. It's an observation and that's their job. I myself enjoy reading good reports. But to concoct tales and say this person said this or that person said, without substantiating it, is not done."

Reports had earlier claimed that Indian batsmen Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara had called up BCCI secretary Jay Shah following Virat Kohli's post-match comments after the WTC final loss over the players' lack of intent. It was reportedly mentioned that the comment did not go down well with some of the team members.
