India’s veteran wicket-keeper Dinesh Karthik, who is currently in the UAE for the upcoming second-leg of the Indian Premier League (IPL), hailed Indian skipper Virat Kohli for his captaincy. As the Indian side took a commanding position in the fourth Test, Dinesh Karthik took to his Twitter and hailed Virat Kohli for inducing a ‘combat zone’ mentality in the squad.
In his Tweet, Karthik praised the beauty of Virat Kohli’s captaincy in the ongoing 5-match India-England Test series has been inducting the combat zone mentality in the Indian squad especially after the batting heroics of Jasprit Burmah and Mohammed Shami’s partnership at the Lord’s stadium, that turned out to be the game-changing point.
Further, Karthik also hoped that Virat will reignite the same fire when the Indian team will come to bat in the 4th innings. He wrote:
“The beauty of Virat’s captaincy in this series has been the COMBAT ZONE mentality he got the team into after the inspirational partnership from Bumrah and Shami. In the 4th innings when they bowl at the oval, I’m sure he will rekindle that same FIRE in every person in the team!”
“Test cricket has a certain fiery charm to it”

Lately, the Indian skipper Virat Kohli has found himself at the receiving end of criticism for his ‘selection choices’ in the ongoing India vs England Test series. Several cricketers and pundits have come out and slammed Virat for not picking Ravi Ashwin in the playing XI. He was also criticised for picking Umesh Yadav and Shardul Thakur in the playing XI for 4th Test match, however, that decision has worked wonders for the Indian team.
