Kohli’s spirited leadership key to success: Jayasuriya

Sri Lanka legend Sanath Jayasuriya, on Wednesday, said that Virat Kohli’s spirited captaincy has enabled the Indian team to find the perfect rhythm against England.

“Team India is in rhythm. Defeating even a strong team like England comfortably,” Jayasuriya said.

The Sri Lankan cricketer known for his explosive batting attributed Team India’s stupendous performance against England to “spirited” captainship of Virat Kohli. “He is a good captain and marshalling bowlers well. He himself is delivering good performances,” Jayasuriya said.

The Sri Lankan cricket legend had special praise for Karun Nair who scored a big 303 not out in the fourth test against England at Chennai.

“It’s not an easy job. One has to have tremendous patience to reach such a milestone,” Jayasuriya said appreciating the extraordinary performance from Nair.

The Lankan cricketer praised Anil Kumble for shaping the Indian team well as a coach. “He (Kumble) has just begun his new career as a coach. Just like he was a great bowler, Anil will be a great success in his new role as coach too,” Jayasuriya, who had numerous interesting duels with Kumble during their playing days, said.
