IPL 2019 NEWS: Virat Kohli is not a Shrewd Captain, Say Gautam Gambhir

The former Indian opener had some notable points to make when he chatted about Virat Kohli’s success rate as a captain in IPL. And this analysis might come in handy when you’re picking you’re team for the cricket fantasy IPL tournament 2019 this year.

Virat Kohli is not a “shrewd captain” said Gambhir, who rightly so has won 2 IPL trophies in 2012 and 2014, whereas in contract Kohli’s IPL trophy case is non-existent. "I don't see him as a shrewd captain. I
don't see him as a tactful captain (tactician). And he hasn't won the IPL. So ultimately, a captain is only as good as his record," Gambhir said on Star Sports show GamePlan.

At the end of the day, a captain is only good as his success of winning championships and Kohli comes no where close. Take a look at these stats in comparison:



Now all this being said, we all know the determination King Kohli brings to the table. If there is a person who can turn things around with his sheer determination and focus, is Virat Kohli.

All eyes are on Virat Kohli to not only perform in this year’s IPL 2019 but to win the trophy as well for his franchise who have been so committed to him.

He’s a red hot favorite for the Play Cricket Fantasy game play so far – but will Kohli be able to live up to expectations this year? Let’s wait and see.
