Former New Zealand coach Mike Hesson recently joined the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) as Cricket Director and he along with head coach Simon Katich have decided to retain Virat Kohli as the captain of the franchise. Kohli was the star performer for the national side against South Africa recently as he scored a match-winning 72 off just 52 balls. The right-hander played delightful cover drives while he also used his writs to maneuver the ball into the gaps on the leg side.
Hesson was really impressed with Kohli’s performance in the second game as he said that the RCB skipper is as good as anyone could get at the international level which makes him a very special cricketer.
“He is as good as they get in world cricket. Last night, we saw another example of what an amazing player he is. He is a fine leader who leads with real spirit and passion,” he said while talking about Kohli.
