Former India captain Virat Kohli is currently in good form, smashing runs for his team Royal Challengers Bangalore as the Indian Premier League is currently undergoing its 16th edition in full swing. The RCB superstar lead the Indian cricket team before he stepped down from the Test captaincy in 2022.
During his tenure as the captain, he brought many laurels to the country but faced a lot of scrutiny for not winning any ICC trophy as the captain. Needless to say, the Indian team played an aggressive brand of cricket in the Tests under Kohli’s captaincy. Meanwhile, the former captain has made an honest admission that he made several mistakes during his tenure as the captain.
Speaking in an episode of a sports-based documentary series, Kohli admitted that he never had any selfish motive while he was captaining team India. He also said that he made some mistakes while he was the captain.
Virat Kohli said, “Hundred percent. So I have no shame in accepting that I have made many mistakes when I was the captain. But the one thing I know, for sure that I never did anything for my own selfish motives that I can take guarantee of that from the one to the last day. I have not done anything for myself. I just had one goal to take the team ahead. I can totally accept if I have taken the decisions correctly or not.
He added, “I can totally accept it you make mistakes like you make errors when you get out, that’s a failure. Failures will keep happening, but the intent was never in the wrong please. So, I can absolutely take guarantee of that. Till that is in its right place, you will make mistakes, but you will learn from that as I said, you will not then start shining away from making things."
Notably, the Delhi-born cricketer is a part of the Bengaluru-based franchise in the current season of the Indian Premier League. The team is set to clash against the Rajasthan Royals on May 14 in Jaipur.
