Maxwell Discusses Kohli’s ‘Huge Task’ as Captain, IPL 2022

Maxwell Discusses Kohli’s ‘Huge Task’ as Captain, IPL 2022. Last year, Virat Kohli stood down as RCB captain, ending a decade-long tenure as the team’s skipper. Last year, Virat Kohli, who has a reputation for putting his emotions on his sleeve, led the Indian team.

In today’s world, the mercurial batter does not lead the national team in any of the three forms. Kohli’s departure from the T20 captaincy was followed by his departure from the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) leadership and dismissal as ODI captain. He finally relinquished his Test captaincy as well.

When he initially joined the international scene, the 33-year-old hitter was renowned for his no-holds-barred attitude. Kohli’s leadership journey, as well as his on-field style, has undergone significant changes in recent months, according to his RCB colleague Glenn Maxwell.

Kohli stood down as RCB captain last year, ending a decade-long tenure as the franchise’s head. Kohli led RCB to the final in 2016, amassing 973 runs, including four hundreds, as the franchise reached the final for the first time. In the next season, he’ll be seen playing under Faf du Plessis’ guidance, and Maxwell feels the former captain will shine without the pressure of captaincy.

“He realises he’ll be passing up the leadership, which I believe will be a significant responsibility for him.” “It might have been something that’s been bothering him for a long time, and now that he’s been able to let go of it, it could be bad news for other teams,” Maxwell said the RCB Podcast.

“It’s fantastic for him to be able to relax a little and enjoy the next few years of his career without any external pressure.” When I used to play against him, I remember him being a feisty competitor who would get in your face. He’s constantly attempting to have an impact on the game. He went on to say, “Impose himself on the enemy.”

Maxwell also spoke about his connection with Kohli, claiming that the Indian has a “in-your-face” approach while playing against him, which is in stark contrast to how he acts with his colleagues. After becoming good friends, the hard-hitting Australian claimed he enjoys cricketing chats with Kohli.

“This year, one thing I’ve observed about him is that he’s been much more measured with his emotions.” He’s been quite methodical in his decision-making. He’s definitely shocked me, as has the closeness we’ve developed this year. Being able to discuss the game in a relaxed way.”

“Because when you play against him, you see that over-excited, in-your-face approach. But I’ve really liked playing with him and having very excellent chats about the game,” Maxwell added.

On March 27, RCB will play Rajasthan Royals, the IPL 2008 winners, at the DY Patil Stadium in Mumbai to begin their IPL 2022 campaign. They’ll play the Sunrisers Hyderabad, Punjab Kings, Chennai Super Kings, and Gujarat Titans twice each in Group B.
