Virat Kohli might have been given the test captaincy of India, but, the BCCI has kept him under consideration for his on and off field behaviour and any act of arrogance in future might cost him big.
According to the reports, the way the Delhi player abused a media person during the World Cup, it did not go well with some of the board officials and if India had any other solid option for Dhoni’s replacement in test matches, Virat might have been denied the captaincy.
But, the fact is that Virat is the only option at present.
He and Ajinkya Rahane are the only two players whose places in the test team are certain.
As far as Rahane is concerned, he does not have any experience of captaincy at all. He has not captained at any level and he is not a natural leader either.
Virat, on the other hand, has got that leadership quality. His enthusiasm on the field is fantastic and he can encourage anyone.
That’s why, he has always been seen as future captain, but, very often, he tends to cross the fine line between aggression and arrogance.
