“71st Coming On The Way”, Rahul Dravid Hails Virat Kohli’s Captaincy And Speaks About His Current Batting Form

Team India won the first Test against South Africa by 113 runs at Centurion. The next game starts at the Wanderers Stadium on January 3rd. Ahead of the match, Head Coach Rahul Dravid spoke about various topics, including Virat Kohli. In this article, we take a look at the recent snippet from a PC in which Rahul Dravid hails Virat Kohli’s captaincy and also spoke about the captain’s batting form.


Rahul Dravid hails Virat Kohli’s captaincy

After Rahul Dravid was appointed Head Coach, many had doubts if Virat Kohli and Dravid would get along. At least at the outset, both seemed to have different approaches to the game. However, it seems, all is working well in the backroom. The result of the first Test against South Africa was proof of the same. India won the game and created history. Dravid spoke about Virat’s captaincy and what he brings to the team.

Dravid said, “Virat Kohli has been an absolute leader in the way he has connected on and off the pitch. I couldn’t speak highly of him. Truly a pleasure to work with someone like him.”


The Head Coach also speaks about Virat’s batting form

These days, every game that India is playing has the subplot of Virat Kohli’s batting performance. It has been more than two years that the Indian Test skipper has scored a century in any format of the game. He is also repeatedly losing his wicket to the channel outside the off-stump. This is ringing alarm bells for Team India. Virat is an important part of the Test Team and with other members of the middle-order also struggling, it is necessary that Virat does well.

Meanwhile, Rahul Dravid spoke about Virat’s batting form. He said, “We are gonna see big runs once he clicks & that 71st coming on the way.” It is good for Team India that the Coach is backing the skipper to come good.
