Former Australian skipper, Steve Waugh reckons that the Indian skipper, Virat Kohli has managed to instill a “new attitude” in his team which is the habit of taking on every hurdle and then getting over it rather than be intimidated by the opposition. Waugh made these comments on his latest documentary “Capturing Cricket: Steve Waugh in India” which captures the very essence and undying love for the game in India. In the documentary, Waugh recollected his initial perception of India.

In the documentary, Steve Waugh said, “Landing in Bombay or Mumbai, as it is now, was a total culture shock, there were just people everywhere, there were cars and bikes and animals and rats and cats running along the footpath and it was just like, where am I? I am in a different world which was just a total shock and a bombardment of the senses.”

Waugh also praised “modern-day hero” Kohli for changing the mindset of the current Indian team.

Steve Waugh explained, “What they love about Kohli is that it’s like the new attitude of India, get stuck in, don’t be intimidated. Take everything on and anything is achievable and possible. But he’s like the modern-day hero.”

In the documentary, Waugh trails India with his camera in hand, across nine major cities documenting India’s love for cricket, which is equivalent to a religion. He starts his journey from Mumbai and visits the famous maidans, which are the breeding grounds of the upcoming cricketers of the city.

Legendary Batting great Sachin Tendulkar, who had spent his initial days playing in similar maidans remembered his earlier days as he said, “I played all my school cricket on those maidans and it becomes sometimes difficult to figure out who is fielding for which team and then to find gaps became more challenging. I remember after that when I went to these big stadiums it became easy for me to find gaps.”
