Virat Kohli on Teamwork and the India Cricket Team

The India cricket team has upcoming matches and team captain, Kohli claims that teamwork is more important over individual performance. 

India is currently on the last part of the ICC T20I World Cup with only 11 T20Is remaining. The India cricket team have upcoming match series which are five T20Is against New Zealand, three against Sri Lanka and another three against England.

Virat Kohli claims to be confident about his team despite the prevalence of injuries during matches. He said that ‘T20 is something we don't have any problems in picking players. Because you have the IPL, at a very competitive level, guys have been performing season after season’. 

Kohli claims that he is concentrated on determining which players are capable to perform under pressure in middle order. He said ‘The next few series will be very exciting to see (as to) who stands up under pressure situations and how they react to pressure when maybe Rohit or maybe myself, or KL or Shikhar at the top haven't fired’.

Injuries have opened doors for bench players to make their claim to the field. The players are bound to feel the pressure as the T20 World Cup is approaching. Kohli’s focus has been to make the young players feel comfortable with regular players. 

Kohli said ‘From a very young stage, we've focused on what we did as individuals. When we came back from a game, we were asked what did you do and not how the team did. That's a mindset change I see has happened in the last three years. We've started to appreciate small performances of the guys who may have taken a catch or got a great run out’.

Other than the India national cricket team, Virat Kohli is also the captain for the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League.
