Virat Kohli shouldn’t be labelled a “failed captain,” in the opinion of former Pakistani cricketer Salman Butt, just because he failed to lead his squad to a senior ICC title while in charge.
Virat Kohli mentioned how many people had referred to him as a “failed captain” for failing to lead Team India to an ICC trophy victory in a podcast interview with the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).
Butt contends that a skipper’s overall ICC championship total is not a valid predictor of his performance. It merely took losing a game under duress or having horrible luck, he said.
In games under pressure, there could have been a few mistakes, or it might have just been luck. Virat Kohli wasn’t an ICC champion, but it doesn’t mean he wasn’t a good leader. Salman Butt was added.
Salman Butt said that Babar Azam still has a lot of potential for improvement after contrasting his leadership abilities with those of Virat Kohli. Yet, he thought that Kohli had led India well, notably in red-ball cricket.
Salman Butt also mentioned the significant victories the Indian side was able to secure under Kohli’s leadership while facing adversity.
Yet, there is opportunity for improvement under Babar Azam’s leadership. Seeing Virat Kohli lead his side through Test matches was amazing. He won a number of games, including a global series. Nonetheless, he was unsuccessful in a final. When this happens, it might appear as though he is to blame for the team’s failure to capture a title.
The former Indian captain guided the team to triumph 135 times in 213 games across all formats. The squad he led won the ICC Champions Trophy in 2017, the World Test Championship (WTC) final in 2021, and the ICC ODI World Cup semi-final in 2019.
