“Each captain has their own distinct style of captaincy and player selection. Kuldeep played a significant amount of cricket for Virat. Virat aspires to get experience on the side. He accompanied Ashwin and Jadeja. He liked Axar over Kuldeep because of Axar’s batsmanship. A captain must have faith in his players.”
