Virat Kohli’s is considered as one of the fine batsman in the world, but the India star will not be completely satisfied until he leaves an indelible mark by winning the World Cup as captain. Kohli has been instrumental in building on Indian cricket’s rich legacy after taking over the captaincy from Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
Kohli still fondly remembers being part of the 2011 World Cup-winning team under Dhoni, who lifted the title on Indian soil, and would love to emulate his predecessor by leading his country to their third world title.
“I would put the win in Australia at a par with the World Cup. Look, you cannot place a World Cup win below anything else,” Kohli told the Times of India newspaper before departing for the tournament in England and Wales. “It is a global tournament and the significance and the charm of the tournament is something else. It is always going to be the most important tournament in world cricket.”
Kohli’s captaincy has often been criticised, with former India opener Gautam Gambhir saying the batsman has “loads to learn” as a leader.
