Sunil Gavaskar was removed from the capatincy in 1971. He claims that he lost the captaincy as a result of his participation in Kerry Packer's World Series of Cricket.

In this list, Virat Kohli was also there. He claimed that there was no prior communication about the decision to remove him from the ODI captaincy.
Reacting to the Virat Kohli controversy, Amit Mishra said this is not the first time something like this has occurred. I believe that a player who has done so much for his nation has the right to know why he was taken from the squad and for a certain position.
