London: Former England cricket team captain Nasser Hussain has said that Indian captain Virat Kohli is the right person at the right time to lead a strong Indian team.
‘Virat is the captain of New India’
Nasser Hussain also said that Virat Kohli represents the idea of a New India, which is conscious and alert about its target and which cannot be pushed around.
‘Virat is the right person at the right time’
Nasser Hussain wrote in his column for the Daily Mail, Virat Kohli is the right person at the right time to lead this invincible team of India. Their players, especially the bowlers, want an aggressive captain.
‘Bowlers like Virat’
Nasser Hussain further wrote, ‘Especially Indian bowlers want Kohli to excite things. Virat Kohli did this work vigorously in the magnificent second Test at Lord’s ground.
‘It is not easy to threaten Team India’
Hussain wrote, “Kohli in particular represents modern India, which cannot be diverted here and there. Even if the umpire wants to remind him occasionally that he doesn’t run the game. This India is not a team that can be threatened. As has probably been the case in previous generations.
‘Virat creates an aggressive atmosphere’
Nasser Hussain believes that Virat Kohli is creating an atmosphere with his aggression to win the Test series for India. India have not won a Test series in England since a 1-0 win under the captaincy of Rahul Dravid in 2007.
‘Captain wants to eliminate opposition’
Nasser Hussain told how Kohli’s aggression works. He says, the purpose of Virat Kohli’s migration is to eliminate the opposition and he psychologically dominates every team.
‘English fans dislike Virat’
Nasir said, ‘I am sure that most people do not like to play against him and the English fans do not particularly like him.’ India is leading 1-0 in the 5-match Test series against England. The third Test between the two teams will begin on August 25 at Headingley, Leeds.
