Mumbai: Cricketer-turned-politician Gautam Gambhir on Thursday stated that Virat Kohli is able to lead the Indian cricket team efficiently because of the presence of players like Rohit Sharma and MS Dhoni.
The former left-handed batsman further stated that the efficiency of one’s captaincy is actually put to test when you lead a franchise in the IPL.
“Still a long way to go for him. Kohli was very good in the last World Cup but he has a long way to go. He captains so well in international cricket because he has got Rohit Sharma, he had MS Dhoni for a long time. Captaincy credentials are noticed when you are leading a franchise, when you do not have other players supporting you” said Gambhir.
“I have been honest whenever I have spoken about this. See what Rohit Sharma has achieved for Mumbai Indians, see what Dhoni has achieved for Chennai Super Kings. If you compare that with RCB, the results are there for everyone to see” the former India opener added.
