Chappell said, “When Virat Kohli became the captain for the first time, especially of the Test team, I felt that his highly emotional nature could be detrimental to his leadership ability.”
Former Australian veteran Ian Chappell praised Indian captain Virat Kohli for bringing success to Team India abroad. India won the fifth and final T20 International match against New Zealand on Sunday to take the series 5-0.
Chappell wrote on ESPNcricinfo, “When he first became captain, especially of the Test team, I felt that his highly emotional nature could be detrimental to his leadership ability.” On the contrary, he used his emotions in such a way that he did not go against the team. “He said,” This is possible because he is very clear about his approach in the game. “
Chappell said that the Indian team has been ‘rich in versatility’ under the captaincy of Kohli, due to which the team has performed better abroad. He said, ‘Another feature of the Indian team under Kohli’s leadership has been the consistent performance. Despite the different challenges of the three formats, the team continues to win. The team has become rich in versatility due to which they are doing well overseas. ‘
The former veteran said, “Captain Kohli of all three formats should be given credit for creating this winning mentality in the team. When a captain regularly leads a team successfully, especially when the team wins from the jaws of defeat, the team begins to believe that he is a miracle player. ‘
Let us tell you that India cleared New Zealand 5-0. Team India did wonders in the history of T20 International and became the first team to win 5–0 in the bilateral T20 series. Now a three-match ODI series will be played between the two teams, which will start on Wednesday 5 February.
