Kohli scored a lot of runs, the veteran demanded to be made the captain of the team again


New Delhi. Virat Kohli has batted brilliantly in this season of the Indian Premier League. Former Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh has advocated giving back the captaincy of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) to Virat Kohli. He said that this veteran player has the perfect combination of enthusiasm, commitment and aggression to take the team forward in the next season.

Virat Kohli became the first batsman to score a century in this season. He is the top scorer in the current IPL (Indian Premier League) with 661 runs in 13 matches. During this period, he has scored runs at a strike rate of 155.16. The RCB team remains in the race for the playoffs with 12 points in 13 matches and is at fifth position in the table.

Harbhajan said in ‘Star Sports’ program ‘Press Room’, “If they fail to qualify (for the playoffs), then they should look at an Indian player (for captaincy). Then why not make Virat Kohli the captain. (Mahendra Singh) Dhoni has a lot of influence on the Chennai Super Kings team, Virat Kohli is also a great captain, he knows what kind of cricket the team needs to play.

He said, “Now he is playing with a lot of aggression, a lot of passion and the same is the case with Virat Kohli. I would like to see Virat Kohli leading the team responsibly.” When asked about team owner Sanjiv Goenka’s aggressive conversation with Rahul after Lucknow Supergiants’ defeat against Sunrisers Hyderabad last Wednesday. Harbhajan said that these things are not good for the good atmosphere in the team.

He said, “There may be differences between the captain and the management but the talks should happen behind the doors which is better for everyone.” The conversation should have taken place inside the dressing room. Whatever conversation is going on, it is not good for the atmosphere of the team. That time was also not right to talk like this.
