Undoubtedly, Virat Kohli is known as one of the greatest all-time skippers of Team India. He has dragged out his team of critical conditions several times heading them towards victory. He has grabbed several records as well which makes him the finest player and a player, however, his captaincy is going through a lot as he often has failed to make it in the final stages of the mega-events.
Taking as an example, the semifinals of the World Cup 2019 against New Zealand, the team got humiliated badly although Virat Kohli’s leading side was unbeaten throughout the tournament. Similarly, in the finals of the Champions Trophy 2017 against Pakistan, the side lost being trashed by Sarfaraz’s side.
For the reason, Gautam Gambhir, the former Indian cricketer, has spoken about Kohli’s achievements in the events and thinks he needs to achieve a lot as a skipper. Gautam thinks Kohli has achieved nothing yet as a skipper and he can keep scoring runs as a player.
Gautam Gambhir: To be honest, Kohli has achieved nothing as a skipper
“Lots! It is a team sport. You can keep scoring your own runs. There are people like Brian Lara who have scored so many runs. There are people like Jacques Kallis who have won nothing. Virat Kohli at the moment has won nothing, to be honest as a leader. He has a lot to achieve,” Gambhir said during the latest episode of Star Sports show, Cricket Connected
“You can keep scoring those big runs but according to me, till you win those big trophies you will never be able to fulfill your entire career,” Gambhir added.
