Virat Kohli is one of the greatest batsmen in the modern era – there are no two ways. The car may have accumulated a ton over the months, but its consistency and reliability with the bat has not diminished much. 43 ODI centuries and 27 test tones combined with an average of over 50 in all formats – the right hand has it all.
However, one thing missing from Collie’s famous career is an ICC trophy while leading the Indian side. The 32-year-old is the captain of India in three ICC tournaments. Collie’s men were defeated in a clash at the top of the 2017 Champions Trophy and the recent WTC final, while the semifinal loss of the 2019 World Cup stopped their run.
Former Indian Wicket goalkeeper Saba Karim, meanwhile, said the upcoming T20 World Cup could be “very crucial” for Collie’s captaincy. Amid growing calls for a change of captaincy, Collie would like to finally lift the ICC’s silverware and end the eight-year drought in India.
“The T20 World Cup will be very important for Virat Koli’s captaincy. I feel the pressure is increasing on him. He himself knows that he has not won an ICC trophy as a skipper. He will make every effort to ensure that India wins this world championship, “Saba Karim told India News.
“The T20 World Cup will be crucial to Virat Collie’s captaincy. I feel the pressure on him is increasing. He himself knows that he has not won an ICC trophy as a skipper. He will make every effort to ensure that India will win this World Cup. “
Reetinder Sodhi, a former cricketer in India, also said Kohli would like to improve his captaincy record by winning the T20I. Due to the current pandemic situation in India, the tent tournament has been moved to the UAE and Oman.
“If you’re talking about pressure, it’s definitely there because you haven’t won an ICC tournament, which is very necessary. You’ve been captain for so long, but in times of crisis our team is under pressure and losing. So Virat Koli will definitely he wants to improve there. “
“But I want to support Virat Collie because over the years he has been captain for so many games and never done anything bad. If we win the T20 World Cup, Virat definitely has to stay captain. If we don’t win, God forbid, then I think that this should be left to Virat, “Sodhi said.
