Virat Kohli has been backed by former teammate Harbhajan Singh, who commended his temperament after being ousted from Team India's white-ball captaincy. Kohli would not have achieved such many runs in international cricket if he was "soft like MS Dhoni," according to the former cricketer. When asked about Kohli's combative temperament on the field, Harbhajan stated that it is Kohli's aggressive approach that has converted the Indian squad into a side that plays to win away from home games.

Singh told the media that Kohli’s demeanor is ideal for the Indian setting. He said that they need guys like Kohli to propel the team ahead, and he accomplished just that. Previously, when the squad travelled to Australia, they would consider how to save the Test series. There has been a shift in how they approach winning the Test series in Australia under Kohli's captaincy.

The former teammate commented that he recalled one of those series in which Kohli made a lot of runs despite India losing the Test series. He remembered that in that game, India had to chase down 400 runs, and Kohli hit a massive century. So, when Kohli returned to the bench, Singh reminded him that the game could have finished in a draw, but Kohli said, "There is no importance in a drawn Test; either you win or you lose.” Kohli added that and “the day we learn to fight, we will learn to win, and we will one day."

Kohli would never have accomplished so many batting milestones if his attitude was like Dhoni's, according to the spinner. He also wished him success in the ongoing series against South Africa.

Singh also said that that is the difference everyone had noticed on the Indian squad. They beat Australia twice, performed well in England, and he is hoping they beat South Africa in this series, despite the fact that this South African team isn't particularly good. He added that as a result, Kohli has excelled in his leadership role. Virat Kohli is the player he is today thanks to his aggressive approach. He believes Kohli would not have scored as many runs if he was as soft as MS Dhoni.
