Lucknow: He is the likely successor when Mahendra Singh Dhoni decides to relinquish national captaincy but India vice-captain Virat Kohli also named Mumbai batsman Rohit Sharma as a captaincy material.
"He (Rohit) has tremendous cricketing brain. I often take his advice during matches," Virat let out a secret when asked as to who apart from him and Dhoni has the ability to lead the India team.
For Kohli, captaincy is about taking responsibility and he is enjoys every bit of it. "I got a chance of being a captain in recently concluded Zimbabwe series. I like to be a captain and take responsibility," Kohli, who was here to attend a programme of TVS Motors as their brand ambassador, told reporters. "As a batsman, we focus on ourselves, but as a captain we have to look into every aspect. The responsibility increases many fold as the captain," he added. On being asked about future plans Kohli said that he has never planned anything. "I never plan anything and believe in consistency. I can't tell what will happen in future," he said.
The champion batsman said that upcoming series against South Africa was important and hoped that with new faces Indian team would give a good performance. He said that time of batsmen from the big cities calling the shot in old times was over and now hardworking player, whether they were from the small city were knocking the door of Indian team.
Expressing pleasure on being compared with former Australian captain Ricky Pointing, Kohli said that many people have said that and it felt good being compared with such a tremendous player. On being aggressive on the field, Kohli said that he never gestured at anyone but he also indicated that he is trying to curb his aggression.
