Indian skipper Virat Kohli has given credit to his wife Anushka Sharma for his improved captaincy. Kohli has led the Indian team with aplomb and the results have been palpable. The Indian captain has led the team in 68 One Day matches out of which the team has won 49. India has ended on the wrong side of the result on 17 occasions with one match ending in no result and one match getting tied.

Consequently, Virat Kohli has a stellar record as the captain of the side. Furthermore, Kohli has also led from the front in the Test matches. Kohli stated that he has become more mature after his marriage with actress Anushka Sharma and that has transpired into his captaincy.

Kohli has led with aplomb.

In fact, it has been noted that Virat Kohli has time and again given credit to his wife for his success at the International level. It is also noted that Anushka Sharma is often trolled whenever Kohli fails to get going, which is absolutely baseless.

“You become more responsible (after marriage). It’s very different from the responsibility you had in your life. You start understanding things much better and you start putting things into perspective a lot more.

“I have become a lot more responsible. That helps you in captaincy as well. It’s only improved my captaincy and me as a human being and as a player,” Kohli replied on being asked how it is to lead a team before and after getting married.

Meanwhile, Virat Kohli will look to continue his good work going in the upcoming World Cup. Kohli also picked one player from the past that he would have liked to pick in his World Cup team. The talisman batsman picked former legendary leg-spinner, Shane Warne.

“One guy that I would love to have from the past would be Shane Warne. I would have loved to watch him bowl if I was in the same team is on the field, just watching him bowl and what he did to the batsmen would have been amazing,” Kohli said.

On the other hand, India will begin their World Cup campaign against South Africa at Kennington Oval, London on 5th June. India had lost their warm-up match against New Zealand by six wickets.
