Brendon McCullum Revealed The Difference Between The Captaincy Of Kohli And Williamson: Virat Kohli led Indian cricket team will be locking their horns against New Zealand in the much-awaited World Test Championship final. Ahead of the mega-event, former New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum shared how Kohli and Williamson have a different approach to their captaincies.
Recently, in an interview, former New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum talked about the much-awaited World Test Championship final, which will kickstart from June 18th, in Southampton.
WTC Final will be a mega tournament for the Men in Blue as they will be entering the contest after a long break, while the Kane Williamson-led side would already be accustomed to the conditions having played two Tests match against England. He said:
“Both Virat and Kane have led their sides brilliantly. Their own forms have been superb. To be able to qualify for the WTC final is a massive achievement.”
“To reach the final of WTC, the results they needed for a long period. You have to force the situations in Test cricket to garner success in the longest format of the game. Both captains have pushed their teams to excel, and I believe they rightfully deserve the opportunity to play in the final,”
Further, in the interview, Brendon McCullum pointed out the difference between the captaincy of Virat Kohli and Kane Williamson. As per him, while Kane Williamson is a dominant leader, on the other hand, he feels Kohli has an aggressive approach. He said:
“They are inspirational leaders but lead their teams indifferently. One (Kohli) is out and out aggressive, while the other (Williamson) is a dominant leader but is not as expressive as his counterpart. They are true ambassadors of the game and are the must-watch talents of the present time.”
“Apart from being great leaders, they are two giants of the International game at his point of time. One of the amazing qualities they both have is to get the best out of those around them. It has helped them to achieve some special things for their countries,”
