Gautam Gambhir About Virat Kohli Captaincy
It is well known that Kohli is going through a tough spell in his striking record, with his last century happening in 2019 versus Bangladesh. Supporters have been anticipating King’s 71st hundred from his bat.
“Same as Rohit Sharma’s role in red-ball cricket, it’s just that captaincy is not there. It might just free Virat Kohli up much more. He might just become more dangerous in white-ball cricket with the pressure of captaincy not being there on his shoulders,” said Gautam Gambhir.
I am sure India will see the best of Virat Kohli: Gambhir

Gambhir said – “I am sure he is going to make India proud, he is going to keep getting runs in white-ball cricket or in red-ball cricket. At the same time, there will be two different guys probably giving their own thoughts, giving their own vision for the team”
“I am sure India will see the best of Virat Kohli, whether it is red-ball cricket or white-ball cricket. At the same time, the kind of passion he has shown over such a long period of time or the energy, you are going to see the same out of Virat Kohli, whether he is the captain or not,” he concluded.
