In an interview, Virat Kohli admitted that he has failed numerous times as a leader and that he is not ashamed to admit it.

After MS Dhoni stepped down as captain, India’s batting star Virat Kohli took charge of the national team. India dominated international cricket during Kohli’s tenure as captain, however, the country did not win any big ICC trophies. Kohli excelled as a leader in every aspect, from bolstering his teammates’ self-assurance to advocating on their behalf. However, Kohli had already shown himself as a capable leader before he even reached the top level of international competition. Before leading India to the U-19 World Cup, he led Delhi to victory in domestic cricket.

In an interview, Kohli admitted that he has failed frequently as a leader and that he is not ashamed to admit it. He stressed that he always had the team’s best interests in mind.

“I make no apologies for admitting that I made many errors in judgment while serving as captain, but I am confident in saying that I never acted out of any desire to advance my own personal interests. In an episode of ‘Let There Be Sport,’ available on Disney+ Hotstar, Kohli remarked, “My only goal was to take the team forward, failures will keep happening but intent was never in the wrong place.”

Although he is no longer captain, Kohli is still a member of the Indian team. At the helm of the Indian cricket team right now is Rohit Sharma.

The current season of the Indian Premier League features Kohli. He is a member of the Royal Challengers Bangalore team. The right-handed batsman’s tenure as captain of the RCB ended after the team’s 2021 IPL season.

Kohli has scored 420 runs in 11 games this season, good for a 42.00 batting average. In IPL 2023, he had a strike rate of 133.76.
