Harbhajan believes Kohli will be World Cup winner soon
Veteran India off-spinner Harbhajan Singh thinks that current India captain Virat Kohli will win World Cup for India as captain soon and fulfill his only lacking to win an International Cricket Council (ICC) trophy.
Kohli has been established himself as one of the greatest batsmen in the history of cricket. He has scored 70 centuries already at the age of just 32. But till now he’s not won any international trophy for Team India.
He went close two times as a captain but failed. First, they lost to their rival Pakistan in the final of ICC Champions Trophy 2017 and then they lost the semi-final game against New Zealand last year in ICC World Cup. India finished the group stage at the top of the table but failed in the knock-out game.
However, 40-year old Harbhajan believes that time is not very far away when Kohli will lift the World Cup trophy for India. “Any captain would like to have that achievement. Winning the T20 World Cup in 2021 would be brilliant. It will not make Virat Kohli very big, he’s already a very big player, but yes it will add on to his legacy of being a World Cup-winning captain,” Harbhajan told India Today.
“With the kind of team we have, I don’t think Virat Kohli will leave without any trophies. The time is very near where Virat will be lifting the World Cup, maybe the T20 one or the next one,” Harbhajan added.
