‘Hard to tell a Mustang to trot’: Holding reveals the ‘only thing’ he’ll say about Virat, asks him to ‘tone down a bit’

The great bowling alley of the West Indies Michael Holding praised Virat Kohli as captain, but at the same time, the former also advised the Indian skipper to slow down a bit.

One of the most successful Indian captains, Kohli is believed to have instilled a fearless approach in his teammates. He set high standards and set an example. His aggression is always visible on the field and Holding believes the 32-year-old is often addicted to his intensity on the pitch.

Speaking with Indian express, a cricketer-turned-commentator compared Virat Koli with former West Indies captain Sir Viv Richards and said: “Virat Koli is the one who wears the heart on his sleeve. He is the one who will let you know how he is feeling. I think that at times he gets a little carried away, but this is Virat Kohli, this is the person. In this respect, he is similar to Viv (Richards). “

“Viv, sometimes on the pitch, was overly expressive. But these are the personalities of these two gentlemen. They can also slow down a bit, but then if you are a Mustang it is difficult to get the Mustang to trot. He will jump, ”he added.

Holding went on to say that Kohli needs to relax a bit to allow his teammates to express themselves freely.

“As for his captaincy, I only saw India during their tour of England and saw them in South Africa. The only thing I can say about Virat is that he slowed down a little so that his team could relax, because many of them, I think, are in tension, ”said Holding.

Kohli faced backlash on social media after India lost the ICC WTC final to New Zealand. However, a number of experts believe that he should continue to lead. India will now prepare to face hosts England in a 5-game test series starting on 4 August in Nottingham.
