This was in early 2015, when Virat Kohli took on the full test team of the Indian cricket team from MS Dhoni after a sudden wicketkeeper-batsman crash in the format. For those who are accustomed to Dhoni's calm and confident leadership skills, expressiveness and personality attitude towards emotional skipper in Kohli came as a completely different taste, like the Indian cricket team.
But there is also a pragmatic side to the current captain who says that he wants to shift between practical and emotional depending on the situation of the match. In the interview bcci.tv, after the first victory in India in Australia, Coli stated that the pride and emotion of the game for the country, as well as attempts to express it on the field, ensure that the extra energy that can not be the case when a person "is too practical in everything".
"I do not like to say things that I can not do myself, it's just not my personality. I say a lot about the team because I personally feel that as soon as your true emotion and passion for the game come out, you can make a special If you too practical about things all the time, I think it's very difficult to find a special, incredible performance when nobody gives you a chance, but I think that in times when you are at the top or the game is in equilibrium, it's the time when you should be practical and tactical in place, and also that I learned a lot in this series.
"But there are crisis situations, I'm always ready to talk to the team in team bouts and dress up – what needs to be done – but for this, my energy should be 120% on the field. And for this, I'm always ready and ready to throw myself around and tell the guys" Well, that is what everyone is expected to do, because this is what the team of India needs, not me. "Even if I was not there and someone was there, if this person asked us to throw around for the team, we should be ready to do it. It's not just my vision, it's the vision of India's teams and vision of the indian cricket
"We want to compete and win on a global level, not just win at home and do not compete anywhere, because we definitely have talent. Sometimes you need to take that emotion that prides you in India and you see the body begins react differently. You find that 10 percent more energy is in difficult situations, when the pride and emotion of the game arise for your country ", – added Kohl.
When the team leader Koli appears, there are often arguments that his energy levels and intensity can not be reconciled with others and they expect that they will make this a disastrous effect. However, Coli explained his intensity definition, noting that giving one hundred percent even "within limits" to contribute to the team is what he expects from his players.
Kohl also believes that expressions of intensity take place differently by different players. Referring to the example of Cheteshwar Pujarian, Coli said, despite being less expressive than an Indian skipper, he offers the same intensity.
"The intensity is very different for everyone. Pujara is as intense in mind as I am – he does not show it, it's another thing, and this is his personality – jeans [Ajinkya Rahane] does not show it because it's his personality, Shamy may not show it, because it's only him, a boom that you might see a little more or Ichant you might see a little more. But everyone is intense in their minds, because the culture that has been outlined – no one remembers individual performances, it's a team game, it should play like a team, and if you win a team, you remember, as a team.
"Jadeja works fastest – I'm not saying you should work just as fast as Jadeja, but why is it working fast? Because he has the right thinking, he wants to keep one run for the team. Within limits, I think everyone should be on their own 100 percent, and this is what the whole team hugged beautifully. They realized that they were not asked to be like somebody, but they should be better off in the field. I think that everyone is now in a comfortable and motivated space, – said Coli.
