Former Indian all-rounder, Robin Singh, believes that the present Indian skipper Virat Kohli has the appetite to be the best in the world. He showered praises on Kohli for his passion for the game. Singh is now gearing up for the coaching stint at the inaugural edition of T20 Global League in November. He is appointed as the coach of the franchise Bloem City Blazers.
The 53-year-old is one of the most sought after coaches in the world T20 franchises right now. He is the batting coach of Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and was Indian team’s fielding coach from 2007 to 2009. He has also been the part of the coaching staff in Caribbean Premier League for Barbados Tridents, Khulna Titans in the Bangladesh Premier League and Uva Next in Sri Lanka’s T20 tournament.
Singh stressed on the fact that Virat Kohli is the best in the world and he has the appetite to be the best while speaking to the Gulf News. “Kohli has the appetite to be the best. You need to have the appetite to be the best in the sport and Kohli wants to be the best. To me, if you have that appetite, then you are on the way to be the best,” he said.
His total commitment has made him the best
The former Indian fielding coach also said that the commitment of the players like Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli has helped them reach the top of their game.
“It is their total commitment that made them the best. There have been many instances when Sachin would sit and discuss on what he want to do and how to play a particular delivery. He spends hours to get it right and don’t go over to the next step without correcting it. These are guys who have worked hard to get in it in their head and overcome it. They will keep on reassessing themselves to always remain at the top. This is something which other people may not do,” Robin, who was one of the very few fittest cricketers in 1990s, added.
