Indian Skipper Virat Kohli recently in an interview with The Times of India revealed a lot about the Indian Cricket team and their upcoming star. Virat was lauding the three new upcoming stars of Indian Cricket Team who are set to be the next big thing.
Captain Kohli is impressed by Shubman Gill, Rishab Pant and Shreyas Iyer and further said, the confidence and attitude they hold are commendable at such a young age. He added, as I have earlier said at the age of 19-20 we weren’t half of the players like they’re now. These three are amazing.
Virat Kohli also hailed the Indian Premier League and believes it plays an important role to build the young cricketers as it gives them the stage to shine. Virat said, their skills are better than before because of the exposure of tournaments like IPL and it’s the best thing that can ever happen to a cricketer.
Kohli further added praising the three youngsters, they’re so confident that by the time they’ll come to senior-level they can easily learn from their mistakes. As they have already played in front of thousands of people. Their intent has to be that “they’re playing for their country”. He believes the boys are already in that zone.
Virat Kohli was asked about the atmosphere of the team dressing room. Kohli said daatne wala environment ab hai he nahi dressing room mein (the scolding environment is no more there in the dressing room). The atmosphere is like anyone can tell anything to anybody. There is no senior-junior difference among the players.
I tell the young guys one thing that is not to repeat the mistakes which I have done before, Kohli further said.
