Upcoming India leg-spinner Kuldeep Yadav was all praise for Virat Kohli's inspirational captaincy after India completed a 9-0 sweep in Sri Lanka, winning all matches across all formats.
"Virat is a leader. He gives you everything you want on the field. When I am bowling, he comes to me and asks what field I want. That's what bowlers want to hear and he gives bowlers freedom," Yadav said to PTI.
"He has given me tremendous support through the Test series, the ODIs and now too. So I am very happy with this kind of team unity as well as the leader,” he further added.
The leg-spinner also went on to term Kohli's dedication as an inspiration. "He leads from the front with both the bat and even in fielding also. Wherever he is fielding, he gives it his all. So it is a motivation in itself seeing him on the field, or whether he is training in the nets," he told PTI.
"Looking at him, if we can improve our fielding even by one percent, that will be good. He talks to younger players about what he wants from them and what we need from the team," he was further quoted as saying in the report.
