Virat Kohli’s leadership has done absolute wonders for the Indian Test side, ever since he took over in 2015.

The side now reflects a clear sense of positivity and purpose and plays with sheer aggression to simply win and enjoy games. A major reason behind such a positive outlook on the game has been the jovial and warm atmosphere within the Indian dressing room.

While other sides maintain a sense of formality within their respective camps, the men in blue integrate more like a typical family and rather than being colleagues, the Indian personnel are more like friends in nature. This has helped the team colossally in gelling well as a unit and sticking with each other through all the thick and thin.

This was reiterated by team’s skipper Virat Kohli after the side completed a historic 3-0 whitewash of Sri Lanka. It was India’s first whitewash of a test team away from home, and it came under the leadership of Kohli.

“In this team, we are more like a bunch of friends playing together rather than a senior or a junior,” said Kohli, when asked about the dressing room secret behind India’s stupendous success under his captaincy.

The skipper also fully backed the skills of all-rounder Hardik Pandya and termed him as the biggest positive for the team.

“The regulars have performed, but the biggest positive would be Hardik’s inclusion and the way he shaped up in these three Test matches,” said Kohli.

“We are a young side, we look forward to play Test cricket, we look forward to play every single Test match with the same kind of excitement and that is the only way you can be ruthless,” he said. “We like to be prepared before hand and be proactive rather than being reactive. We have age on our side and we have an opportunity to play together for five, six years for the country.”
