“From being a part of creation and then being a creator himself”.

Can the above statement justify Virat’s tenure as the Indian Cricket Team Captain?

The journey started in Australia in 2014 and ended in South Africa in 2022. From the seventh rank in the tests, and then creating such an unbeatable team that even won matches on foreign soil, Kohli’s passion for test cricket and most importantly his passion for winning the test matches was inimitable.

He inculcated fitness, discipline, the spirit of never giving up, the courage of winning the test matches overseas, and most importantly, his self-confidence which outstands his performance as the captain.

It wouldn’t be wrong to say that he was the perfect successor to MS Dhoni and as the record says, he was definitely amongst the best. When the audience and even the players were moving towards the shorter format of the game, he sprung in the middle and taught us that test cricket is still the most authentic and precious form of cricket.

There’s no doubt that Virat always led the Indian team to glory from the front. Virat always backed his teammates: from giving chances to KL Rahul in England in 2018 where he was unable to garner scores, guiding Rishabh Pant when he struggled to find his rhythm, to giving full support to Mohammed Shami when he was targeted on his religious identity when India lost to Pakistan in the T20 World Cup 2021.

Let’s not forget how Kohli, during the 2019 World Cup, spoke to the Indian spectators when the crowd started booing Steve Smith, and what a sign of compassion that was! This mojo player built a strong pace attack and his theory to play five bowlers was not negotiable.

Ishan Kishan in one of his interviews with Akash Chopra quoted, Agar ye pehla ball patkeh toh osse pehla ball maar oss taraf” that’s what Virat said to the young debutant Ishan Kishan when he was going to face his first international ball against the lethal Jofra Archer, he made a comfortable environment for young Ishan.

Now that Kohli has stepped down as the Indian Cricket Team captain, we can clearly see the chaos amongst the Indian cricket lovers. Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Rishabh Pant, and many more such contenders are psyched up to fulfill his position as the captain, but what’ll be missing is the fire, the passion, aggression, confidence to take on any opposition fearlessly.

India did lose matches under Virat but he brought in the culture which turned into the tradition of winning the test matches and what changed is they won much more than what they lost.

40 wins in 68 test matches, the records speak for themselves. His approach towards the game, his aggression, passion to fight till the very end gave India the best white-ball captain ever.
