Virat Kohli will be captaining the Men In Blue in all the three formats of the game in the upcoming West Indies tour. The Kohli-led side will be travelling to the Caribbean islands as well as the United States for two Tests, three One Day Internationals and three T20Is starting from 3rd August to 4th September 2019.
It has been almost a fortnight since Team India's heartbreaking semi-final exit from the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. India were one of the favourites to win the coveted trophy and they also had an impressive run in the tournament where they won seven out of their nine matches with 15 points in their tally to top the league table. Their solitary loss had come against the hosts England. New Zealand handed them their second loss in the semis and it meant that India's quest for a third World Cup had to wait.
As the Indian team look to start their new journey post World Cup 2019, skipper Kohli has said that he has learned the most from failures and setbacks. The charismatic cricketer added that the worst setbacks have not only motivated him but also improved him as a person and made him understand the importance of those times more than the success.
The 30-year-old also highlighted two important points: He mentioned that the setbacks make you sit down and think what needs to be done now for building a roadmap. At the same time, these moments will also show who all will stand by you in tough times and the people who will jump ship, he said. The top-ranked batsman in Tests and One Day Internationals had said this during an interview with a media publication.
The Delhi batsman also said that when one makes a mistake, they can point on it and take the ownership but the acceptance becomes difficult when one is completely outplayed. Kohli then said that when one gets knocked out without making any mistakes, then that becomes very difficult to digest.
