Former Indian paceman Ashish Nehra has worked closely together with Virat Kohli in Royal Challengers Bangalore, in which the arm pacer was a part of the training team. Discussing with former India opener Aakash Chopra on his display Aakashvani, Nehra opined that Kohli remains a work in progress concerning his captaincy. “Virat Kohli, as a participant, requires no recognition because his profession chart tells the whole story. Kohli as a participant has done incredibly well; in captaincy, I feel he’s a work in progress. I can say he’s a bit spontaneous captain,” he explained.
Nehra, who had been a part of the 2011 ICC World Cup-winning team, also stated he believed that group management had left numerous changes in the group in the previous two decades, which upsets the center of the group.
“You ought to keep your players on their feet. There’s not any doubt about that. Occasionally couple players tend to have a backseat, and it’s crucial to place pressure on these. However, there were too many changes in the playing XI within the previous two decades,” he explained.
Nehra also stated that the present Indian team is nowhere near the all-conquering Australian facet of their first decade of the 2000s.
“It is not like that Indian group can’t reach there, but I feel the core team is essential. An individual becomes confused after viewing many dishes around the dining table, and thus it is necessary to get fewer but better meals,” that the Delhi paceman said.
