'I Have Made Many Mistakes ....' Virat Kohli's Honest Take On Captaincy

After succeeding MS Dhoni as the team’s captain, Indian batter Virat Kohli took the helm. India ruled world cricket despite not taking home a major ICC trophy while Kohli was captain. Kohli excelled in the position of the captain, inspiring his colleagues with confidence and speaking up for his squad.

Kohli, though, had already demonstrated his leadership abilities before to competing on the senior international circuit. Ahead of guiding India to the U-19 World Cup, he also captained Delhi in domestic cricket.

In a recent interview, Kohli said that as a skipper, he made a lot of mistakes and that he had no problem in accepting that. He continued by saying that he always worked to improve the team.

“I don’t feel guilty admitting that I made a lot of mistakes while serving as captain, but one thing is for sure: I never acted selfishly. Failures will keep happening, but my desire was never in the wrong place, my only goal was to move the team ahead. Kohli stated in an episode of “Let There Be Sport” that is currently airing on Disney+ Hotstar.

Although Kohli is still a member of the Indian team, but he is no longer a captain. The Indian cricket team is presently captained by Rohit Sharma.
