Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) member Madan Lal has backed Indian skipper Virat Kohli for his aggressive antics on the field. Kohli is a passionate sportsman who wears his heart on his sleeves and fights till the last ball of the game.
The dynamic leader is quite aggressive on the field and is mostly seen using verbal abuses and slangs towards the away crowd or the opposition players.
However, some former cricketers and cricket fans have questioned Kohli’s antics on the field stating that he lacks sportsman spirit.
In the recently concluded India-New Zealand tour, there were certain instances when Virat was seen hurling abuses towards the Kiwis and their supporters. This raised the eyebrows of his critics and some have again questioned his aggression on the field.
Madan Lal Backs Virat Kohli:
Though the Kiwi tour has ended on an unsuccessful note, Lal doesn’t want Kohli to change the way he approaches a game.
“First, everyone wanted a very aggressive captain and now you want Kohli to stop his aggressive streak. I love the way he is on the field. Earlier, people used to say that Indians are not aggressive; now that we’ve become aggressive people question that and ask why we are so aggressive. I enjoy Kohli’s aggression; we need a captain like him,” he was quoted as saying by Times of India.
Virat Kohli Is Still The Best Player In The World: Madan Lal
Even the best players have downsides when it comes to their form. Many believe that some technical flaws exist and were picked out by the Kiwi bowlers during the last tour.
As for Lal, Kohli remains the No. 1 batsman in the world even though he is out of form.
“He was out of form. You can say it was a loss of confidence. That (series against New Zealand) doesn’t take anything away from him. He is still the world’s best player. At times, technical flaws come in and you then try harder and harder but still you don’t come out of it. It happens to the best of players,” he stated.
Virat Kohli Had A Poor Outing In New Zealand
Kohli had one of the worst rough patches of his career so far during ongoing India’s tour of New Zealand.
Precisely, he is not having a good time with the bat and the ‘century master’ has been relatively quiet for a long time now.
Kohli had the worst series as a captain with the bat in the recently-concluded India-New Zealand ODI series as he could score only 75 runs in the three games he played.
This was by far his poorest performance in a bilateral ODI series since his captaincy debut in the format.
