Virat Kohli’s Captaincy Under Question After India Loses Chennai Test To England
Virat Kohli’s captaincy might be under serious threat as ex-cricketers have started pointing towards a necessary change. Have a look at all the details here.
Indian cricketer Virat Kohli has been under the radar for quite some time as cricket buffs have been monitoring his work as captain ever since India won the India Vs Australia test series, in his absence. According to former England spinner Monty Panesar, the Indian cricket team has not been performing quite well under Virat’s captaincy. He also believed that if India loses the second match of the India Vs England test series then Virat must step down of the position as the team is failing to reach its true potential. India’s historic win against Australia proved stand-in captain Ajinkya Rahane’s capability as a leader and most fans feel that the structure must continue. However, some of the analysts have also been of the stance that Virat Kohli’s captaincy has made team India flourish even in the darkest times.
Here is a look at the ZEE5 video with details related to the analysis made on Virat Kohli’s captaincy:
Questions are being raised on Virat Kohli’s captaincy ever since team India won a dramatic test series against Australia in his absence. According to the video attached above, Virat Kohli has not been performing well as a captain as the team lost the last four test matches under his captaincy. According to ex-cricketer Monty Panesar, statistics suggest that Virat Kohli is an exceptional batsman but the team has failed to perform in test cricket under his captaincy. He suggested that Kohli should resign if they lose the next match as it would be the deciding factor in terms of the International test cricket trophy.
Under Virat Kohli’s captaincy, the team lost the first test match against Australia at their home ground and the loss was a major setback on the entire team. After the first match, Virat Kohli went for his paternity leave and the captaincy was taken over by Ajinkya Rahane, who seemed to do a great job in terms of leadership. Previously, under Kohli’s captaincy, the Indian cricket team had experienced a major loss in New Zealand as the opposition won the two-match series with a clean sweep. Clearly, the Indian skipper is currently under major pressure and his position as the captain might also heavily rely on the second deciding test match against England.
