Ray Jennings, the former head coach of the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) believes that the best is yet to come for the skipper Virat Kohli. He says that he is a good player and it has been exceptional to see him growing as a captain but at the times, he used to be alone and backed a few of the wrong players.
Jennings’s statements might be a sign that Kohli’s backing some undeserving players could have been the reason that RCB have not made it to the winning title yet.
Kohli sometimes backed wrong players: Former RCB’s head coach
“If I have to look back then I would say that in IPL there used to be 25-30 players (in the squad) and it was the coach’s duty to look after all the players. Sometimes he was a bit of a loner in the team. Sometimes, he backed the wrong players. But, you can’t blame him for that. I wanted certain players to bowl or bat in certain conditions/situations, but he had different ideas,” Jennings told Cricket.com.
“You needed somebody around Virat to guide him (at that point in time). Of course, he and I bumped a few times, but he is a good guy and a very quick learner. Nice to see him grow as a player and now as a captain. His mannerism is great. His best is yet to come,” Jennings concluded.
The Bangalores are ready to tie their knots on 21st September with Sun Risers Hyderabad (SRH). This time, Kohli’s side has a different kind of confidence in them as concluded by De Villiers and the skipper’s chat.
