Srinagar, November 23: Former India cricketer Harbhajan Singh has said that time is not far when Team India skipper Virat Kohli will be adding that elusive World Cup trophy to his list of achievements and trophy cabinet as Captain.
“Any captain would like to have that achievement. Winning the T20 World Cup in 2021 would be brilliant. It will not make Virat Kohli very big, he’s already a very big player, but yes it will add on to his legacy of being a World Cup-winning captain,” Harbhajan told India Today.
“With the kind of team we have, I don’t think Virat Kohli will leave without any trophies. The time is very near where Virat will be lifting the World Cup, maybe the T20 one or the next one,” Harbhajan added.
Harbhajan said this in the backdrop of BCCI President Sourav Ganguly unveiled the ICC World T20 trophy as India is scheduled to host the mega event in 2021.
Virat Kohli has got number of records to his credit, but still lacks an ICC trophy in his cabinet as captain. Ever since Kohli took over team’s captaincy in the limited-overs format, he came close to winning the ICC title twice but could not succeed in doing so.
