• AB hails Kohli’s leadership after Indian win

    Former Proteas captain AB de Villiers heaped praise on Virat Kohli’s leadership qualities after India beat England in Ahmedabad on Saturday.

    De Villiers Tweeted that his Royal Challengers Bangalore teammate was able to get the best out of some of the younger guys in the Indian team, who played a pivotal role in the 3-1 series triumph.

    ‘Kohli’s leadership this test match allowed young guns like Axar, Rishabh and Washie to play with freedom and dominate the game. It takes a special leader to elevate other players around them through body language and passion when their personal performance has been down,’ De Villiers stated.

    India will now face New Zealand in the World Test Championship final at Lord’s on 18 June.
