The Indian skipper Virat Kohli has been breaking records at will with every passing game he plays and is being considered a modern-day great of the game. However, when it comes to his leadership skills, Virat Kohli is still a work in progress, thinks former Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi.

In an exclusive conversation with NDTV, Afridi said that Virat is his most favorite batsman in the world but he has a lot to learn from MS Dhoni as far as captaincy is concerned. The all-rounder said, “As a player, Virat Kohli is my favorite but he needs to work on his captaincy because for me Dhoni is still the best.”

Team India is currently in Australia for a series comprising of 3 T20Is, 4 Tests, and 3 ODIs, but they failed to start their much-anticipated tour on a bright note. The visitors lost the first game of the three-match Twenty20 International (T20I) series by a narrow margin of four runs in Brisbane conceding a 1-0 lead to the hosts and the second T20I was washed-out in Melbourne.

According to veteran Pakistan batsman Ramiz Raja, India have a world-class batting line-up and they will surely adjust well to the conditions. He said, “It is all about adjusting to the conditions. Batsmen will get used to the extra bit of bounce and bowlers will have to adjust if they have to win.”

India has toured Australia on 11 occasions since 1947 and is yet to win a Test series Down Under.

Before departing to Australia, the Indian skipper said that he is hoping to play a sledge-free series in Australia this time and Ramiz Raja thinks that Kohli should be his natural self not try to curb his aggression. He said, “It is very difficult to alter your DNA in a space of 20-25 days. Kohli should be himself and play his natural game. Everything is fine if he plays cricket within the parameters.”
