Virat Kohli became one of the successful Indian cricket team captain in a short period of 4-5 years. Virat Kohli became the Indian Test captain in 2014-15 Test series against Australia, after the shocking retirement news of MS Dhoni from the Test cricket. He has already won the most number of Test matches for India as a captain. Dhoni as a captain has won 27 Tests out of 60 Test matches for India. He surpassed the record of Dhoni with a 28th Test match win in the Test series of India vs West Indies 2019. Currently, Virat Kohli have led to 33 Test wins out of 55 Test matches & it is the highest number of Test victory by any Indian captain in the history of Indian cricket.

Speaking in the Star Sports' Cricket Conneceted show, the former England captain Nasser Hussain have said that Virat Kohli is like no one, he's his own man in developing his own unique leadership skills.

"First thing I would say is he's his own man. It's very easy coming after MS Dhoni, I've got to be like MS Dhoni, I've got to be this calm, calculated finisher, cool, ice man. Virat Kohli could never be the cool ice man," Nasser Hussain said about the Indian skipper.

Virat Kohli became the ODI captain of India in 2017, after MS Dhoni resigns from his captaincy for India. Kohli as a captain has the win percentage of 71.83 and led Indian to 62 ODI wins out of 89 and lost 24. Whereas MS Dhoni as a captain led to India 110 ODI wins out of 200 ODI matches and lost 74. Though Kohli have a better win percentage, he has to still win more matches in the future to beat the record.

When comes to handling of critical situations in field during the live cricket matches, MS Dhoni handles it so calm and cool. Whereas, Virat Kohli some times be so aggressive at the field & does not handles that so cool like MSD. Even it can be a competitive match or any important match in the ICC tournament, Dhoni handles the situation same as every other & thus he called as 'Captain Cool.'

Nasser Hussain also said that he would worry about the teammates of Kohli because, when Kohli plays football with his players, he could do a double footed tackle & can win the ball.

"Virat Kohli wears his heart on his sleeve. If you watch Virat Kohli football in the morning, I would worry about some of his own players because he's so keen to win, he could do a double-footed tackle at waist height to be honest because he just wants to win," he said.
