Indian captain Virat Kohli is always recognized as one of the most aggressive cricketer on the field. He always wears his heart on his shirt and is always ready to take on with the opponents. Infact the opposition challenge pumps him to perform much better and give his best. According to Australia’s former fast bowling spearhead – Brett Lee, all these qualities in Virat Kohli are exactly similar to former Australian captain – Ricky Ponting.

According to Virat Kohli, winning the match is always his first priority. Probably due to that reason Kohli has become one of the most successful run-chasers in the history of cricket. While Virat Kohli is yet to win any global ICC tournament, but his aggressive captaincy puts him inline with Ricky Ponting.

Ricky Ponting won the World Cup twice in 2003 and 2007. He is also the kind of captain who doesn’t want to give an inch to the opposition team. According to Brett Lee, Virat Kohli and Ricky Ponting both had the match winning mentality and hated to lose even a single game. Brett Lee told:

“Everyone’s got different styles of captaincy. If you see Ricky Ponting and Virat Kohli, you could say there are some similarities between their captaincy styles. They’ve got that raw aggression, but it’s not necessarily over the top.”

“There have been times where every captain’s gone over the top from every nation. But I’ve enjoyed watching Kohli’s captaincy. Because real passion comes through. He wants to do really well for the team,” Lee added.

Brett Lee continued to praise the Indian captain Virat Kohli for his awesome batting skills. Lee said that while batting Kohli’s aggression is nicely balanced. Lee added:

“Apart from his (Kohli) captaincy, he does well with the bat personally. He is the same as Ricky Ponting. He had that real powerful aggression but not too much. There’s a nice balance, I think. They are pretty similar when it comes to captaincy.”

“And also, they’ve got a great ability to read the players. So, you think about Ponting the way he had set the fields, very attacking fields, I see the same In Kohli. Kohli is happy to attack.”
