Only a couple of days back former India opener Gautam Gambhir had opined that Kohli is 'not a tactful captain' and is very lucky that RCB persisted with him as skipper for six years despite not leading the team to the title and for that reason he can't be compared with Rohit Sharma and MS Dhoni, who have led their team to multiple titles in the League.
When a question on that note was asked, this was the Bangalore skipper's response.
"Obviously, you want to win the IPL, I am doing what I am supposed to do. I don't care whether I am going to be judged on this (not winning IPL) or not. There is no real, sort of, parameters you set. I try to perform wherever I can. I try to win all the possible titles, but sometimes it just does not happen. We have to be practical about why we have not won one. That boils down to bad decision-making in pressure situations.
"If I think like people from outside, I can't even sustain five games. I would be sitting at home. I know people talk about it a lot and they like to grab opportunities to talk about these things. But I have a responsibility here and given a chance, as a captain, I would love to win the IPL for my team. We all are motivated to do so."
