As we all know that Virat Kohli showed up an impressive record as a captain since taking over the reigns of Indian Test Team before two years.
The 27 years old young cricket sensation feels that true captaincy lies in taking bold decisions and backing it to the hilt without thinking about its consequences.For those who don’t know, under the leadership of Kohli, India won 9 matches, 5 ending in draws and lost only two.
Recently, Kohli admitted that he is a great admirer of his predecessor MS Dhoni‘s captainship.
“Decision making is very hard at times and it takes a lot of courage to do that. I learnt a lot from Dhoni seeing the way he made decisions. They might have been right or wrong but to convince yourself to make one decision and go forward with it; I think that is the essence of being a captain,” an statement gave by Kohli.
Kohli feels that the leadership responsibility made him a much better cricketer.
“It is a matter of honour to be the captain of the Test team for the country. It is something that I take a lot of pride in. To be a Test cricketer for starters and then to lead a Test side; for me it is something I always wanted to do,” he said.
“That extra responsibility helped me play even better than I probably would have been.” claimed the charming cricketer.”To have the responsibility of making sure that we play well as a Test team is something that gives me lot of good vibes and I appreciate that. It is a challenge for you to test yourself against yourself. Be able to take other players along and go towards one goal i.e. winning ; which I think I have been put in to is a position of privilege rather than a position of pressure,” Kohli further said.
“To become a great player, you need to play great as a team and then your performances count. That is an ultimate our aim.” he said with a broad smile on his face.
“Obviously there will be ups and downs and you will feel the heat and take criticism and negative things along the way. But that is what it is all about, that builds character,” he added.
