Virat Kohli Was The Leader When It Came To That: Ravi Shastri
Responding to a fan’s question, Shastri emphasized the significance of maintaining intensity, especially when playing in foreign conditions. He stated that it is crucial to sustain that intensity throughout the game, as failing to do so can give the opposition an advantage. Shastri praised Virat Kohli for being a leader in terms of maintaining the required intensity.
“Virat Kohli’s energy rubs off on the other players as well. When you go out to play in foreign condition, it is very important to have that intensity. You cannot show intensity for one hour and then go to sleep. The opposition will eat you up. He [Kohli] was the leader when it came to that.”
As the Indian team prepares for the high-stakes WTC final, Virat Kohli’s energy and passion for the game are expected to inspire and motivate his teammates. His leadership and determination will be crucial in navigating the challenges posed by the Australian team.
Cricket enthusiasts around the world eagerly await the clash between these two cricketing powerhouses, as they anticipate an intense and memorable contest in the ultimate showdown of the World Test Championship.
