Former skipper Sunil Gavaskar perceives that India’s star batsman Virat Kohli should not be rushed into captaincy in all three formats. Kohli should be allowed to grow while leading the Test team. “Virat should not be rushed into captaincy in all formats. Let him grow into this role… 2019 World Cup is far away,” Gavaskar told.
Former captain Sourav Ganguly backed Virat Kohli to be given the leadership role soon. Sourav said Yesterday that he would be surprised if current limited overs skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni leads the Indian team in 2019 World Cup. Gavaskar’s opinion differs from Sourav Ganguly’s remarks.
Kohli has been in sensational form of late and is currently the leading run-getter in the Indian Premier League. His IPL team RCB, however, has not been consistent in the tournament and are sixth on the points table.
Gavaskar said that the bowlers have let captain Kohli down in the competition.”Bowlers have let Bangalore down in IPL. Kohli is as good as his team,” Gavaskar added. Kohli has taken a clear lead in the batting charts, scoring 561 runs at an average of 80.14, including two hundred and four fifties in nine innings.
