Brett Lee has compared the captaincy skills of the current all-time India captain, Virat Kholi, to the captaincy skills of Australia’s well-known Ricky Ponting.
Brett Lee compares Virat Kohli’s captaincy to Ricky Ponting
Considering the aggressive captaincies of both, Ponting and Kholi, Lee said they have got a similar amount of aggressive captaincy styles on the field.
“If you see Ricky Ponting and Virat Kohli, you could say there are some similarities between their captaincy styles. They’ve got that raw aggression, but it’s not necessarily over the top. Apart from his (Kohli) captaincy, he does well with the bat personally. He is the same as Ricky Ponting. He had that real powerful aggression but not too much.
Talking about the attacking fielding, he said the factor exists in both of them.
There’s a nice balance, I think. They are pretty similar when it comes to captaincy. And also, they’ve got a great ability to read the players. So, you think about Ponting the way he had set the fields, very attacking fields, I see the same In Kohli. Kohli is happy to attack,” Brett Lee told Times of India.
Lee also discussed MS Dhoni’s topic and mentioned the person can do a lot still and has much potential to be the skipper again or even vice-captain.
“I think there is definitely more to see of MS Dhoni. He still has so much to offer. He’s that cool character, he could be a captain again, he’s the guy that can be a great vice-captain. He doesn’t even need a captain. He’s just a great leader amongst the team. And everyone that knows Dhoni knows that he’s a wonderful guy, such a generous person,” he added.
