Virat Kohli and his aggression on the field is something that Indian cricket fans have fallen in love over the years. The skipper has proved actions speak louder than words. As he always has the back of his players on the field.

While sometimes, it means just to motivate a player, other situations require him to let off his inner Delhi boy. Well, at the end of the day, Kohli has built a fierce reputation on the field.

Arzan Nagwaswalla was called up for to the Indian team as a standby for the WTC final. Although the youngster didn’t get a chance to showcase his talents, he is certainly heading towards the right path.

After sharing the dressing room with Virat Kohli, Nagwaswalla shared some interesting thing. During an interview with CricTracker, he was asked about one player he would never mess with.

I won’t mess around with anybody actually but if I have to pick one, then I won’t mess with Virat Kohli right now. We all know how he is on the field but off the field, he is quite opposite of that. So, on the field, I would not mess around him,” said Arzan.

As Arzan said, Kohli‘s aggression on the field must give his teammates unparalleled confidence. However, in recent years, Kohli has toned down his aggression to some extent.

Fans would love to see the old Kohli back some day for sure. As of now, the Indian captain and the team suffered a heart crushing defeat against New Zealand in the WTC final.
