Under Virat Kohli’s Captaincy India Lost Big World Events Knockout
So far Virat Kohli has represented team India as the captain in two events i.e. 2017 Champion Trophy, 2019 ICC World Cup. Both times the Indian team had a good chance to lift the title. However, India lost the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 Final against their arch-rivals Pakistan. And in the ICC World Cup 2019, where India was looking favourites, lost the semi-final match against New Zealand.
Both time, earlier in the tournament, the Indian team was finishing the games one-sided, however, in the matches where India lost, the team completely looked different.
Gautam Gambhir Takes Dig At Virat Kohli For His Captaincy Career
Recently, during an episode of Star Sports, Cricket Connected, Gautam Gambhir takes dig at Virat Kohli for his captaincy career. However, Upon being asked if there’s a long way to go for Kohli as a captain, Gambhir agreed.
“Lots! It is a team sport. You can keep scoring your own runs. There are people like Brian Lara who have scored so many runs. There are people like Jacques Kallis who have won nothing. Virat Kohli at the moment has won nothing, to be honest as a leader. He has a lot to achieve,” Gambhir said during the latest episode of Star Sports show, Cricket Connected.
