Former Australian captain Ian Chappell compares Kohli to Ganguly and Dhoni

Virat Kohli, according to former Australia captain Ian Chappell, was a “different kind of captain.” He maintained his enthusiasm while leading the Indian team and led them to victory. After India’s 1-2 loss in the Test series against South Africa, Virat also stepped down as captain of the Test team. In any format, he is no longer the captain. Virat will be a batsman for Team India in all three formats.

Kohli hasn’t scored a century in international cricket in more than two years. As a result, he was under a lot of stress. As a result, he stepped down as captain of the first T20. After that, he was given the ODI captaincy, and he eventually relinquished the Test captaincy.

No one could have done what Virat did.

“When Kohli took over the captaincy of the Indian team after MS Dhoni, one of the big questions was whether Virat would lose enthusiasm and enthusiasm,” Chappell wrote in his ESPNcricinfo column. But none of that. How would he perform as a captain? Kohli was, without a doubt, an outlier as captain. He did not temper his enthusiasm, but he was still able to lead the Indian team to victory. He led India to foreign soil with the help of vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane. But he achieved success in a way that no other Indian captain could.

Victories in Australia and England that will go down in history

India’s two big victories under Virat’s captaincy, according to Chappell, were in Australia in 2018-19 and England in 2021. In India, on the other hand, his team was nearly unbeatable. Under Virat’s captaincy, India has only lost two games. One is a match against Australia, and the other is a match against England. Over the course of seven years, Kohli largely carried on the legacy of Sourav Ganguly and MS Dhoni. His most egregious error as captain occurred recently against South Africa. India had a 1-0 lead in the series before losing the final two games. The Indian giants struggled against a young South African team. He did not, however, captain the Test at the Cape in the middle of the series.

Virat Kohli is India’s all-time leading Test captain.

Kohli is India’s most successful Test captain, having led the team to victory in 40 of 68 matches. Virat’s batting record improved dramatically after he became captain. After becoming captain, he scored seven double centuries in Tests. Rishabh Pant was developed by Kohli as a wicketkeeper and batsman. Without a doubt, his support for Pant was a brilliant move. In Tests, Kohli has a 54 average as captain.

Virat Kohli will now play in the West Indies’ ODI and T20 series. At the same time, he could play his 100th Test match in the series against Sri Lanka.
