In a recent Interview, Doshi Talk About Virat Kohli’s leadership abilities as an opportunistic trend. He said


“Virat Kohli is India’s cricket captain and he should continue. Simply because he left for a leave for the birth of his child should not take away from him what he has built. And, let us not forget that the team was already doing very well in Test cricket under Virat’s leadership.“The opportunistic trend of removing him now because (Ajinkya) Rahane has done well, I don’t buy that. I think that will spoil the team spirit. Virat deserves to remain the captain. Ajinkya would be very happy to be an understudy to him now and provide his excellent service as a teammate.”


Praising Virat Kohli’s leadership skills, Doshi added that the present team has been built around his thinking. He further stated:
