Absolute Honour Leading India In T20Is: Virat Kohli
Kohli meanwhile gave out a statement on stepping deon from T20I captaincy after India’s game against Namibia. India won against Afghanistan, Scotland and Namibia by big margins to end the campaign on a high.
“Relief firstly (on leaving T20I captaincy). It’s been an honour but things need to be kept in the right perspective. I felt this was the right time to manage my workload. It’s been six or seven years of heavy workload and there is a lot of pressure.
“The guys have been fantastic, I know we haven’t got the results here, but we have played some really good cricket. The guys have really made my work easier. The way we played the last three games, it’s a game of margins – T20 cricket these days. Two overs of attacking cricket at the top is what we were missing in the first two games. As I said, we weren’t brave enough in those games and in the group we were in, it was tough” said Kohli when asked about his decision to step down from the shortest format.
