Indian skipper Virat Kohli has always been known to go for a game with an aggressive approach on the field. While he prefers to be in the commanding position while batting, he also doesn’t mind exchanging arguments with his rival cricketers. While some have praised Kohli’s approach towards the game, few of them have termed his methods as brash and bizarre.
The former South African all-rounder, Jacques Kallis has been known for his calm and collected approach. The attribute has subsequently earned him success and most importantly, respect from the cricketing fraternity. He highlighted the importance of controlled aggression and urged the Indian skipper to have a check on his aggression for the betterment of Indian cricket.

In a recent media interaction, Kallis said, “As a leader sometimes you cannot always be as aggressive as he is, that is an area he will work on, he is still young in his captaincy. I am sure he will chill out a little more as he gets a little bit older. But he is obviously very passionate and that is nice to see.”
Success can at times be contagious as it may allow arrogance to sneak in. Hence, even after achieving objectives, one shouldn’t stop crushing themselves as it prepares us for sterner challenges ahead in our career. Jacques Kallis, during his interview, also highlighted the room of growth for the Indian team going ahead into the future.

The all-rounder said, “One area India probably try and want to improve their record on is there away record especially on wickets that carry a little more than they are used to. But it seems they are making their strides and getting better at it. I am sure they would have learned a lot playing in South Africa.”
Kohli has successfully led India to a series-triumph in the ODI series against South Africa. Having won four out of first five matches, the Indian captain would be hoping for his team to turn over the Proteas at Port Elizabeth and end the series on an auspicious note.
