Highly temperamental Virat Kohli has been named captain of the ICC World XI and it is a good news for the Indian fans all over the world. Kohli was the Man of the Tournament in the recently concluded World cup T-20 and he was the linchpin of the Indian batting throughout the series. He scored those runs when it was most needed for the Indian side. The batsman was in sublime form and which made him the backbone of India’s batting line up. He scored 273 runs at a staggering average of 136.50. These achievements helped him to become a hero and now captain of the World XI as well. A captain has to imbibe many qualities to become a great leader. He has to have the nerve of a gambler, the patience of a saint and the mind of a psychiatrist. Kohli should shed his aggressive nature and must act as an experienced cricketer rather than going for silly arguments and reveal his inexperience as a leader of World XI.
