Virat Kohli, probably the most celebrated Indian cricketer of the moment, is one of those rare players who is actually expected to break records set by greats such as Sachin Tendulkar and Brian Lara.
Kohli's fine technique is just a glimpse of his real character as a player. He has many other virtues that a great cricketer of the present time should possess.
His attacking approach to the game has not only earned him praise from fans and critics, but has also seen him reach great heights and the possibility of receiving the most prestigious honour for any Indian - the captaincy of the national team - something which he would surely have been dreaming of since his childhood.
Many debates have been conducted about his special ability to play well in difficult situations, whether it is is a world cup or an India-Pakistan clash.
But no one has actually taken up the topic of Kohli's future responsibility, not just to hit a century and lead India home, but as a potential successor to of one of India’s greatest captains - MS Dhoni.
We have already seen a lot of leadership from Kohli as he captained the Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL 6 and he could also lead India to great milestones like the World Cup.
Cricket is moving to a different era. This new era is going to consist of attacking cricket and non-conventional ideas.
Virat Kohli’s style of captaincy in the present definitely give off vibes that he is the man who will lead India through the evolutionary stage of cricket.
His mindset looks aggressive and firm which is really important for the bonding of all eleven players in the field.
The fast paced game needs a faster and swifter decision making process. When you are playing in front of 50,000 people, you need the possess a special quality to believe in yourself and face all odds. That is something Virat Kohli has shown through his game over the years.
Virat Kohli is definitely the next Tendulkar, Dhoni and Lara in making. His style of cricket is not just a delight for the supporters, but a delight for the opposition too.
