Gary Kirsten presumed the success of this Indian batsman
New Delhi: Showering praises on Indian Test skipper Virat Kohli, former Indian Cricket team coach Gary Kirsten said he presumed the success of the right handed batsman.
Gary said Indian Test team is doing very well under the captaincy of aggressive Virat Kohli.
Gary Kirsten about Virat Kohli:
- Virat has been a great captain and was always unquestionable.
- He has led by example with his on-field performances.
- His leadership at the Test level has worked really well for the national team.
- The best part about Virat is that he looks as inspirational as a leader in the manner he walks in the field.
Kirsten coached Indian team under the leadership of MS Dhoni (also in Tests) and team touched several milestones in his tenure. It was under his guidance when Dhoni and brigade bagged 2011 World Cup and touched the top rankings in Tests.
When former South African player was asked about comparing leadership qualities between Dhoni and Virat, he denied comparison saying, “Dhoni is a very good captain. I had thoroughly enjoyed working with Dhoni during my tenure as India coach. But since I have not watched the Indian team play all formats on a consistent basis, it will not be fair on me to compare Virat and Dhoni's consistency levels.”
Indian team will play New Zealand from September 22 in the first Test match of the three-match series. The match will be played at Green Park in Kanpur.
Men in Blue will also take on New Zealand in a five-match ODI series after Tests.
