Mumbai: Former India captain Mohammad Azharuddin on Wednesday said that BCCI should think of appointing young Virat Kohli as the Test captain after India's drubbing in the longest format in the recently concluded series in England.

The 51-year-old came down heavily on skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni and said,"You don't survive as a captain. If you perform then only you stay for a long time.
