Virat Kohli, the Indian skipper across all formats, is currently facing the music which MS Dhoni has been combating for over a decade. Captaining an Indian side always a difficult job but for a mentally tough character like Kohli, it’s just another challenge. Ever since he has taken up the captaincy, there has been a palpable growth in the Indian side, their performance in South Africa was a testament to this fact.
Kohli recently opened up on the rumors over MS Dhoni’s future. Many experts and media houses have speculated that Dhoni’s career is inching closer to an end with the resurgence of Dinesh Karthik. Kohli said that if we think and speak like people who have nothing to do with the decision making, then Indian cricket will be in big trouble.
“If we speak and think like people on the outside, Indian cricket will be in big trouble, I can promise you that. It’s far from the fantastical world on the outside where issues are created out of nowhere,” said the RCB captain.
He also spoke at length about the changing behaviors of people when they win or lose a game. “Suddenly when the team is doing so well, people look for disharmony and we (cricketers) are like how negative people can become, that you want to sell something negative or speak about something negative all the time,” Kohli added.
We understand where we are heading as a team
Kohli clearly mentioned that it doesn’t matter what people say or write on the outside. He reckons their opinions keep fluctuating depending on how the team is playing and it makes no sense to think judiciously about them. He also stated that they’re aware as to where the team is heading and they are in a comfortable state right now.
“When we lose, there are debates all the time which are non-stop and when we win, just two features and then on to the next news. So, it doesn’t matter to us what people say or write on the outside. We understand where we are heading as a team and are absolutely comfortable,” Kohli opined.
