Former India batsman Kirti Azad has said current captain Virat Kohli gets over aggressive sometimes. It won’t be wrong to say that Virat Kohli and aggression go hand-in-hand. Ever since starting his career in international cricket in 2008, Virat Kohli has never even tried to check his aggression.
Time and again, the batting superstar has also reiterated that aggression brings the best out of him. But while the aggression has definitely helped him thrive on the cricket field, he has also faced criticism on a number of times for the same reason. The India batting mainstay has faced the heat on several occasions for being too aggressive.
Speaking about the same, Azad said that while Virat Kohli’s aggression is perfectly fine, he overdoes it sometimes. Azad also said that a matured Kohli would realise it soon.
“I don’t think so (on Kohli not setting the right example on the field with his aggression). I think he is perfectly fine. Aggression should be there but sometimes he overdoes it. He doesn’t do it all the time, sometimes he overdoes it,” Azad told CricketAddictor in an exclusive interview.
“And I am sure with the maturity now, he would realise when he should be aggressive and how much aggression should be there,” added the former cricketer who was a part of the Indian team that won the country’s first-ever World Cup in 1983.
Virat Kohli will be seen in action soon when the IPL gets underway next month. Just like his India teammates, he has also not played any competitive game since March due to the coronavirus pandemic. The thirteenth edition of the IPL will start on September 19 in UAE.
Virat Kohli will be leading Royal Challengers Bangalore and will be eyeing his first-ever IPL trophy.
