Virat Kohli who is regarded as one of the best batsmen in the world is often criticized for his on-field behavior as he seems arrogant on the field with the way he conducts himself on the field.
There is always a divided opinion among fans about Kohli being humble whereas the other group of people thinks that he is arrogant.
However, the best part about him is that he hasn’t changed himself a bit on the field with the way he carried his attitude on the field.
The latest to join about this discussion related to Kohli’s behaviour is Former Indian team selector Sarandeep Singh who spoke to Sportskeeda where he was asked about current Indian skipper behaviour to which he said Kohli is a great listener who listens to everyone in selection meeting before making a call.
“Whenever Virat comes, team meetings used to go on for 1, 1.5 hours. Virat is a good listener. I don’t know what people think about him. If you see him in the matches, he’s always charged up while batting and fielding. So it seems like he’s always hot and arrogant, and doesn’t listen to anyone. But no, he’s as down-to-earth as he seems aggressive on the field. In selection meetings, he was so polite. He always used to listen to everyone and then finally come to a decision,” said Sarandeep.
The former selector further added that Kohli and his wife celebrated Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma manage their most housework without servants.
Sarandeep was all praise for the 32-year old as he called him down-to-earth and a strong-willed person. He also defended Kohli’s style of expressive captaincy.
“At his home, there are no servants. He and his wife will serve food to everyone. What else do you want? Virat always sits with you, chats with you, and goes out for dinner with you. All the other players have so much respect for him. He’s very down-to-earth and strong-willed,” said Saranadeep.
“On the field, he needs to be that way because he’s the captain. He’s the one who’ll handle the pressure on the ground and make decisions in the heat of the moment,” he added.
