There has been no question marks over Kohli’s captaincy: Hesson
Current India skipper Virat Kohli, who was named RCB captain in 2013, is the longest-serving skipper in RCB’s history but there is one thing that is keep on haunting him and that is their inability to win the title.
Many thought Kohli would change the fortunes but it didn’t happen like as he remained unsuccessful so far. the last three seasons, Kohli army finished last in the table of eight two times and that is a disappointing record.
The RCB made some important changes in their coaching staff and squad for the 2019 season but yet the team could not up the ante as they finished at the bottom of the points table. Former head coach of New Zealand cricket team, Mike Hesson who has been roped in as RCB director has ruled out the fact that the team could not achieve anything better.
He also disagreed with the perspective that Virat Kohli alone manages things in the RCB camp.
“We don’t have that perception that Virat controls things. But may be he has had his learnings from the past (mistakes) while moving forward. There has been no question mark over Virat’s captaincy during last couple of weeks (of discussions),” the 44-year-old Hesson spoke during a media interaction.
“…we have been very much aligned and he has been more than happy to take our advice from our experience,” Mike Hesson, who quit the job of the head coach of Kings XI Punjab in August after just one year with the franchise added.
Royal Challengers Bangalore’s recruitment of players has quite often come under immense fire but Hesson highlighted that they were looking at specific players (not a lot of options) for the upcoming edition.
He also said that the approach to the game will not be the same as before as players will have a clear-cut role to play and the preparation will initiate once the auction gets finished and not just a week before the tournament starts.
He also stated that certain players will be watched during the course of the Vijay Hazare and Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy tournaments. He explained it is more important to find players based on how they construct their innings even in crunch situations of the game considering the pitch conditions.
