Indian skipper Virat Kohli, who will be now captaining in all three formats in cricket, said that it’s surreal and he never thought such a day would come.
The right-handed batsman said, “I never thought this day is going to come to my life. When I came to the team, I was always looking to perform, get more opportunities and build solid consistent career and contribute to the team in winning games.”
He further clarified that captaincy isn’t a stressful job rather an opportunity to make the difference to the team’s fortune.
“I won’t say it is not a stressful job, however, it is fun. It is all about understanding the strengths and weaknesses of people around you. The way I came up in my career is similar. I knew my strengths and weaknesses but people did not like me as such. You can have different ways, you can have different style till your intent is good,” he told Mandira Bedi during a talk show after inaugurating Nitesh Hub Mall in Pune.
Kohli was appointed as ODI and T20 captain last week after M.S. Dhoni stepped down from the position.
He was earlier leading the Test series. Also, it was under his captaincy that the India U-19 team had clinched the colts World Cup in 2008.
