In an Instagram chat with his teammate R Ashwin, Kohli said that he always wanted to take responsibility and becoming the captain of the Indian team was part of that process. To a question on the process of becoming the captain of the team, he said, “I think the biggest reason for this is that for a long time I played under the supervision of MS Dhoni.” It is not that the selectors told me as soon as he left that you are the captain now.
He said, “The captain who is, takes responsibility and says that this could be the next captain and I will tell you how it is moving in that direction.” After this, it gradually moves towards taking responsibility.
Kohli said, “I think he played a big role. Confidence built in six to seven years. It does not happen overnight. ”He said,“ I always stood next to him. He used to keep saying that he can do it, he can do it. What do you think Many things were talked about. Gradually he felt that I could captain him after that. '
Kohli said, “I like to take responsibility. I did not even think in my dream that I will become the captain of India. We started playing at one time. After that the purpose was to keep playing. '
