He helped his side reach the playoffs for a second successive season and that should be a major highlight.

RCB played exceptionally well against Mumbai Indians in the UAE leg of IPL. After losing to KKR and Chennai, the Virat Kohli-led team made a memorable comeback and thumped Mumbai in the cash-rich league. RCB scored a well-compiled fifty against the defending champions, which included three sixes and as many fours.

He also rotated the bowlers well while defending a total of 165 against the strong batting line-up of MI.

Kohli’s aggressive captaincy helped the team to win the match by 54 runs.

“I think the guys prefer to see him be more aggressive, it seems to get him to play a bit more fluently. It kind of sparks the younger players too, a lot of the younger guys have massive respect for Virat, and they admire him so much that they kind of follow in his direction,” the speedster said as reported by India Today.

Under the captaincy of Kohli, India have registered impressive wins across the globe. “When he’s fighting fire with fire and nobody’s doing it for India, you can hear all the quicks, when they were playing against England recently, how they were talking about following their captain and they want to play fighting fire with fire,” Steyn added.
