“When a captain steps down after seven long years, then obviously it takes a lot of people by surprise. I myself was surprised to see it and think the decision came quickly than many expected. But obviously, Virat knows what his plans are and what he wants to do. When you are the captain, certain things are different for you. Kohli the batter will be under pressure because when you are captain, you don’t have to worry about selection,” Harbhajan said on his YouTube channel.

He cited some big examples on how one cannot take place for granted. The Turnbantor added he cannot wait to see Kohli get back among the runs and continue to win matches for India.

“You are always selected. But no matter how big a player you are – Sachin Tendulkar, Kapil Dev, Sunil Gavaskar or anyone else. When you don’t perform, there is always pressure and that will remain on Kohli which wasn’t there in these last seven years. But in these 7 years, he has given the maximum performances as captain and I hope that now as a batter, his performances keep getting better and he wins India matches scoring heaps of runs,” added the former India spinner.

Meanwhile, Virat Kohli began his post captaincy era with a couple of half-century barring a duck in the second ODI. He will look to use the situation to his advantage after carrying the load of Indian fans for seven years on his shoulder. He is expected to explode against West Indies in the upcoming home series & the Sri Lanka Tests also in the backyard.
