Why Virat Kohli deserves so much respect

Virat Kohli may have lost some games for India, but there are still a lot of reasons why players and fans should respect him. The star is one of the best players in the world and he even made a case for being the best of all time along with other cricket legends.

If Kohli is still the main subject in most of India’s slurs, then this should be changed. The captain is doing all he can to lead the way for his team. That makes him a great player and a leader as well.

Kohli has been the main hero for India’s runs. The star proved his worth as a true leader and he deserves so much respect when it comes to his games. He has set the standard for a lot of players and his batting has been the secret weapon that worked well for India’s chances in some of the biggest tournaments.

Fans may have their say on Kohli’s up and down game, but no one can say that he is not a good star. This is what makes the skipper a top pick among many fans all over the world who believe in what he can do to help the Men in Blue.

Kohli is a strong leader for the Men in Blue

Kohli took up the helm for India after the great MS Dhoni. The star has worked hard in his games over the years and Kohli watched greatness before him. When he took over, Kohli earned a lot of praise from many critics thanks to his scoring antics.

He’s been an innovator for the Men in Blue and they thrived in his lead. While they did not win as many international titles as they did in Dhoni’s lead, it is still a legacy worth noting. Kohli is a strong star whose grit has been praised over the years, and that is what made him a key scorer for the team even before he became a captain.

Dhoni saw the growth in Kohli, and he believed that the star had what it takes to win for India. He was not wrong, and Kohli’s success both as a star and as a leader for the Men in Blue earned him the right to stand as one of the best players in the world.

Even if the star decided to step down as the captain for the team’s run in the international games, he still deserves to be the leader for the team. There is no one who could replace him at this point because the star is still the best captain they can ask for.

The likes of Rishabh Pant and Rohit Sharma are great players, but they do not have the needed experience to be a leader like Kohli. Ajinkya Rahane is the vice captain and he is the next one in line, but he may be close to ending his career just like Kohli.

This shows why Kohli must stay as the captain even after the T20 World Cup. He still has a few years ahead of him, and he can use that chance to build a lasting legacy with the Men in Blue by winning more titles with them starting with the TWC.
