Virat Kohli Has The Best Indian Team In History; Pure Luck Or Excellent Leadership?

Hanima Anand |Jul 15, 2020

A former coach of the Indian team said that the team under Virat Kohli is probably the best Indian team of all time. However, the question is this is due to the luck or leadership skill of King Kohli?

Indian team under Virat Kohli leadership is the best in history

Anshuman Gaekwad, who is the two-time Indian national cricket team coach and also a former Indian cricketer during 1980s, said in an interview that the current Indian team led by Captain Virat Kohli is probably the best team of all time.

The Indian team under Virat Kohli's leadership is claimed to be the best in history.

It’s true by statistics. Since leading the Indian national cricket team since 2015, Virat Kohli has brought his men to one-off Test series win in West Indies and Australia. The team also gains unprecedented ICC Test rankings in Indian cricket history.

Such names as Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Shami, Ishant Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar or Umesh Yadav make the team of Virat Kohli the goal of every cricket captain. These men are listed among the best fast bowling line-up on the global scale.

Below is the exact sharing from Gaekwad on the current Indian team under the leadership of Virat Kohli:

“If you ask me, I believe that he has the best possible team in Indian history. Bowling, batting, balance of team is the best. Up till now, we had no pace bowlers. We had Karsan, Roger, Kapil, but they didn’t win matches for you all the time. Today, they have a battery of pacers with options, and they are winning matches for you.”

Anshuman Gaekwad is an experienced cricketer. He was also two times coaching the national team. Although this man has retired for long, he is still closely observing the development of Indian cricket. Through his sharing, we can see that Gaekwad is more than impressed and proud of the current Indian team with captain Virat Kohli.

This man also reasoned why we could gather such a talented team together, under leadership by Kohli.

Luck of Virat Kohli or Proof of his excellent leadership?

If anyone is asked to compare the on-field skills among famous captains in Indian cricket history like Virat Kohli, Sachin Tendulkar or M.S Dhoni, he or she may refuse to give an answer. It’s understandable when each captain possesses their own gifts and strengths in playing cricket.

However, when it comes to leadership skills, it doesn’t take long for former coach Anshuman Gaekwad to pick a name among legends.

The natural vibe from Virat Kohli makes him the best leader of Indian team.

Gaekwad had a very straightforward sharing that Virat Kohli’s captaincy is crucial in forming such a great team. He has the ability to bring the best out of each player, instead of forcing them to perform the same as himself.

Gaekwad had been exposed to both Virat Kohli and Sachin Tendulkar when they were captains. The former coach said that he had tried to convince Tendulkar several times over his captaincy, but the legend cricketer felt he was giving 110 percent while the others were not. And he wondered why they couldn’t do the same.

Virat Kohli is different. He understands each individual has distinctive strengths and weaknesses. He knows that he might be giving 110% but others could only do 95 or even 90. However, Gaekwad also highlights the fact that a great captain, probably like Virat Kohli, could realize the fact and convert others’ ability to their 100 percent.

Reflecting on what our current Captain is doing, we can see that Gaekwad is totally reasonable.

King Kohli leads his team by doing examples.

Virat Kohli hasn’t been found criticizing others’ efforts. Nor does he scold his teammate for what they can’t do. He leads by doing example and inspires others to follow, at their own pace.

During the lockdown due to coronavirus, fans often see Virat Kohli posts home training videos on his Instagram. His workout makes even professional cricketers jaw-dropping. This is clearly a great example and reminder for his team to maintain their normal work despite unfavorable conditions.

With this leader and his spirit, we believe the current Indian cricket team would obtain more extraordinary achievements in the future.
