Indian player Virat Kohli’s childhood coach Rajkumar Sharma said that his ward is always keen to fight and upgrade himself.
A few weeks ago, Kohli relinquished India’s Test captaincy role after the team suffered a series defeat to South Africa 1-2.
Virat Kohli stepped down from captaincy duty:
Kohli quit the T20I leadership after the T20 World Cup in November, last year. Just ahead of the South Africa tour, he was replaced with Rohit Sharma as the ODI captain as the selectors didn’t want two white-ball captains for India.
On Sunday, Kohli posted an image on Instagram where he is looking in the mirror and wrote the caption: ‘Its you vs you.’
Virat Kohli wants to reattain the heights he has achieved: Rajkumar Sharma
While talking about the former Indian captain’s social media post, Rajkumar Sharma said that Kohli wants to make himself better.
“It tells the entire story; he (Kohli) wants to tell that he is not fighting against anyone, and he always wants to better himself only, which he has always done throughout his career,” Rajkumar Sharma told India News.
“I have always said that he does not run after records. He does not know most times what record he has created, and I tell him what record he has created. So he has a fight with himself only, that is what he probably means that he wants to improve his performance because lately, it has not been up to the benchmark he has set.
“According to me, it means that he (Kohli) wants to reattain the heights he has achieved; his effort will be there for that only. and that is why he has given such a comment. In the end, he has to fight his form only,” he added.
Kohli was named in India’s squad for ODI and T20I series for the upcoming bilateral series against the West Indies, starting on February 6 in Jaipur.
