Former Australia skipper Ricky Ponting has said that he is really surprised with Virat Kohli stepping down from his role as India's Test captain. Earlier this month, Kohli relinquished the leadership a day after India suffered a 1-2 series defeat against South Africa in the three-match series. Last year, the 33-year-old had also stepped down as T20I captain and was subsequently removed as the ODI leader after the selectors wanted one leader for the white-ball formats.
