Virat Kohli has received a vocal boost from the former pin-up boy of Indian cricket, Yuvraj Singh. Kohli, who will lead India in the upcoming ODI series versus Sri Lanka in the absence of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, is the future of Indian cricket, said Yuvraj, who last played for India in a T20 international in April 2014.
In an interview to Indian Express, Yuvraj called Kohli an "angry young man" who hated to lose.
Kohli, who was in horrendous form on the tour of England but bounced back during the curtailed West Indies series at home, is seen by many as India's next captain. "He is an angry young man. He is more aggressive when he is the captain and the team is losing. I see great potential in Kohli. He is outstanding when it comes to work ethic and focus," said Yuvraj.
