When they made Kapil Dev captain, he won the 1983 World Cup. Similar freshness was given by new captains like MAK Pataudi and Ajit Wadekar. Even Kris Srikkanth on his maiden Test captaincy tour to Pakistan managed a tied series when everyone was predicting a whitewash. Sourav Ganguly also ushered in a new era in 2000 and so did Dhoni in 2007. In fact all the fight in the Indian team happened when Kohli was made Test captain—A clear signal that his reign has to be extended to the shorter formats too. We choked in the 2014 T20 World Cup final, the 2015 ODI World Cup semi-final and now in the 2016 T20 World Cup semis, we have fallen short again. Maybe we need captain Kohli to cross the line and batsman Dhoni to grow even stronger.
