Kohli gave up the T20 captaincy. He made the announcement before the T20 World Cup. It was Kohli's decision to quit the captaincy from this format. BCCI had no role to play in it. But BCCI can ask Kohli to give up the captaincy of the ODI. Kohli himself may announce his release from the ODI captaincy before the South Africa series.
