Kaptaan Kohli?
What Virat has going for him

  • Geography: North Zone hasn’t thrown up a captain in recent years unlike South, West and East zones
  • Experience: The Under-19 World Cup winning captain is already the vice-captain of the Indian ODI squad
  • Versatility: BCCI prefers a common captain for all three forms of the game; Kohli’s led Royal Challengers in IPL
  • Headstart: Much more than peers Suresh Raina or Rohit Sharma, has shown he fits the job profile
  • Competition: Seniors like Virender Sehwag and Yuvraj Singh are seen as being past their sell-by date
  • Mentorship: As a key lieutenant of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, has seen the current captain up-close
  • Temperament: Brash, arrogant, aggressive and emotional...yet mature (if you will please pardon the MC-BC)
