Ex-RCB Coach Jennings Points Out The Mistake Of Virat Kohli From The Past in IPL

There is no doubt that Virat is one of the most successful captains of Indian cricket and everyone knows his poor and contrasting record as captain with RCB. Now the ex-RCB coach Jennings has pointed out what went wrong with Virat during his time as the coach. He said:

β€œSometimes he was a bit of a loner in the team. Sometimes, he backed the wrong players. But, you can’t blame him for that. I wanted certain players to bowl or bat in certain conditions/situations but he had different ideas.”

Jennings Talks About Difference Of Opinion With Virat Kohli

RCB’s time under Jennings was probably the bright days of RCB as the team went through to the finals twice but sadly lost both of them. However, in a very positive way, he described the difference of opinion he had with Virat. He said:

β€œSee, IPL is very different from international cricket. In six weeks’ time, some players can pick from and some may go awry. So, someone in the group needs to be there all the time. When I was there certain players should have played more but he has different views. However, that is in the past and it’s nice to see him maturing day by day and he will start winning IPL trophies.”

Jennings Feels Virat Kohli Has Done A Good Job With RCB In IPL

Jennings feels Virat Kohli is a good captain as RCB has made it to the playoffs and finals multiple times under him. He said:

β€œWe shouldn’t forget IPL is a game of small margins. He has made it to the semi-finals (playoffs) and final and he will definitely achieve a lot more success in the coming years. Sometimes, criticism is that he doesn’t enjoy time with the players. But, I can understand that since a captain has a lot on his plate. Also, the auction is a very important factor.”

Jennings Has High Regard For Virat Kohli

Jennings feels Virat Kohli is a big bundle of talent and he got the right guidance when it was needed. He said:

β€œVirat Kohli has always been an unbelievable cricket brain. He sets very high standards (for himself) and we went along despite one or two problems. You needed somebody around Virat to guide him (at that point in time).”
