Hope there’s no division in the Indian dressing room over Kohli: Brad Hogg
CRICDOT DESK : Former Australian weirdo Brad Hogg hopes that tensions will disappear in the dressing room in India after Rohit Sharma has been appointed Captain of ODI to replace Virat Kohli. Rohit has also been nominated as Deputy Test Captain of India.
Kohli, who resigned as T20I captain after the T20 World Cup, will continue to lead the team in the test and Hogg will certainly ease the pressure on him.
“I think this is a good move. Kohli needs to accept it, relax throughout the situation and focus on leading the test team as captain. So basically, Rohit Sharma focuses on the teams needed for white ball cricket, and Virat Kohli focuses on test cricket, “Hogg said on the YouTube channel. And Virat Kohli only has to worry about the test environment.
Hogg also said the move could be a blessing, especially for Kohli, who hasn’t been at its best in the racket for the past two years. Not only for white ball environments, but also for sponsorships and other off-field initiatives. I think it will work for Virat Kohli. Hogg said that in recent years when he was under pressure as the captain of all three teams, his slightly subdued performance would improve.
“I think it’s a blessing. If they leave, I hope” on their next tour, this locker room will not be separated by this little separation between these two specific players. ” .. Both have to hug it, go to the changing room and move the Indian cricket forward. That’s because Indian cricket with batting and bowling talent should dominate the world’s cricket for at least the next five years, “says Brad Hogg.
India will then travel to South Africa and will face Protea from December 17th with the same number of ODIs as the 3-way test series.
