Curtly Ambrose Is A Big Fan And Will Pay To Watch Classy Virat Kohli

Virat Kohli has been one of the most successful captains for India, besides being the premier batter in all three formats. He has led India in 60 Tests – joint most with MS Dhoni – with 36 wins. In IPL 2021, which had to be halted midway due to COVID-19 concerns, RCB led by Virat Kohli had emerged as a top side winning 5 of the 7 games.

“Wonderful cricketer. I’m a big fan. Kohli is one of those guys that you will pay to watch. He’s so classy and easy on the eye. He’s just a wonderful cricketer in all formats. Great cricketer,” Ambrose said on The Curtly and Karishma Show on YouTube, which is hosted by sports presenter Karishma Kotak.

The 32-year-old will now be leading the Indian side in the final of the World against New Zealand, before taking on England in the five-match Test series. And when he steps on to the field to lead India in the WTC final, he will also be conquering another record – most Tests as a captain for Team India.

Virat Kohli Holds Many Records Including Most Runs In IPL And Most Successful Test Captain

The 32-year-old Virat Kohli, who had played his first IPL match against KKR in 2008, extended his all-time run-scoring record over other batsmen in the cash-rich league by getting to 6076 runs in 199 matches. He has five hundred and 40 fifties beside his name.

As far as captaincy is concerned, Virat Kohli is already India’s most successful captain in Test cricket. So far, he has led the team in 60 matches, having won 36 and lost 14 (drawn 10).

He broke former Indian captain MS Dhoni’s record of winning 27 Tests as captain in 2019. In the Test series against England, Virat Kohli emulated Dhoni’s record of leading India in the most number of Tests (60).

Australia No Longer The Best At Identifying Talent: Greg Chappell

Greg Chappell, former Australian skipper believes Australia is no longer the best at identifying talent and that the country has lost the bragging right of calling itself the best at it.

Australia No Longer The Best At Identifying Talent: Greg Chappell

Greg Chappell: Australia Have Lost Position As The Best At Identifying Talent As England And India Are Doing Better Than Australia

Greg Chappell opined other countries like England and India have taken over.

“I think we’ve already lost our position as the best at identifying talent and bringing it through. I think England is doing it better than us now and India is doing it better than us,” Greg Chappell told cricket.com.au.

During the 2020/21 Border-Gavaskar Trophy, India fought back after losing the first Test to win the series 2-1, almost with second and third-string teams. The side was plagued with injuries to its key players in each department and was also without regular talismanic skipper Virat Kohli after the first Test.

Being 1-0 down, losing the services of regular skipper Virat Kohli due to his paternity leave, having lost several key players like Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami, and Ravindra Jadeja due to injuries, a second-string Ajinkya Rahane-led India staged a comeback for the ages as they won their second straight Test series on Australian soil.

Greg Chappell: Indian Second String Players Have Played For India A Throughout The World Whereas Australia Had Picked Cricketers From Domestic Tournaments

Greg Chappell admitted the remarkable Test series victory bore testament to India’s highly effective player development system. On that tour, every youngster put their hand up and put his best foot forward.

“When you look at the Indian team that played in the Brisbane Test that had three or four fresh players, and everyone said, ‘This is India’s second XI’ – those guys had played (extensively) for India A,” said Chappell.

“And in all sorts of different conditions, not just in India. So when they get picked, they’re not tyros at all, they’re quite hardened international cricketers.”

On the other hand, Australian debutants Will Pucovski and Cameron Green had limited experience playing outside their home country.

“We picked Will Pucovski out of Shield cricket. Will has hardly had a game outside Australia. That’s the difference,” Chappell pointed out.

India’s next Test assignment is the tour to England. They will first play the World Test Championship final against New Zealand followed by a five-match Test series against the hosts England.

After a tough home loss to India, the Australian men’s side were due to head to for three Tests, however, that series was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The limited-overs tour of New Zealand for five T20s still took place, with the Black Caps prevailing 3-2.

Australia is set to make a belated trip to Bangladesh later this year for their first tour since 2017. Not for the Tests originally scheduled as part of the World Test Championship, but instead for T20Is intended as warm-ups for the T20 World Cup meant to be hosted by India soon afterwards. Bangladesh is also to host England for white-ball games ahead of the T20 World Cup, meaning a triangular series may be arranged.
