The <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/india/">India</a> captain, who was rested from the last two ODIs and the <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/india-vs-new-zealand">following three Twenty20 Internationals</a> against <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/new-zealand/">New Zealand</a> keeping the BCCI s workload management programme ahead of the <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/icc-world-cup-2019">ICC World Cup 2019</a>, has recorded 47 wins, 14 losses, one tie and one result in ODIs, since he took over the reins from MS Dhoni in January 2017. <p></p> <p></p>However, according to <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/australia/">Australia</a> spin great <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/virat-kohli/">Shane Warne</a>, Kohli is a better leader of men as compared to a tactical captain. <p></p> <p></p>"I think he is the best leader of the team at the moment. There is a difference between captaincy, tactics and the leader of the team. I am a huge Virat Kohli fan. I think he is great for the game of cricket. He leads his team so well, Warne told <em>NDTV</em> on Sunday.

He also reckons that India and hosts England are favourites for the World Cup which will run from May 30-July 14. <p></p> <p></p> Tactically it's very hard to split. I think Tim Paine (Australia), Kane Williamson from New Zealand are very good tactically as well. So, I think it's very hard to say if there are any standout captains, but I would say the best leader of men at the moment is definitely Virat Kohli," he said. <p></p> <p></p>"India and England are the two favourites. So, I think those two teams will make it. Australia, if the selectors pick the right team, with <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/steven-smith/">Steve Smith</a> and <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/david-warner/">David Warner</a> back in the team who have a lot to prove, they will be hungry and very determined along with the guys like <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/marcus-stoinis/">Marcus Stoinis</a>, <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/darcy-short">D'Arcy Short</a>, <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/shaun-marsh/">Shaun Marsh</a>, <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/mitchell-starc/">Mitchell Starc</a>, <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/pat-cummins/">Pat Cummins</a>, <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/glenn-maxwell/">Glenn Maxwell</a>. They have got a team that could win the World Cup and surprise a lot of people. Australia will make the last four," he explained.

For me, he can bat at number four, five, six depending on any situation. So, he is definitely the wicket-keeper for me in the team. You need that experience in the squad to win a World Cup. You need your big players to perform well and if India are going to win the World Cup they need Virat Kohli, <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/rohit-sharma/">Rohit Sharma</a>, and MS Dhoni to perform as well as guys like Bhuvi (<a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/bhuvneshwar-kumar/">Bhuvneshwar Kumar</a>) and <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/jasprit-bumrah/">Jasprit Bumrah</a> need to perform really well, " Warne added. <p></p> <p></p>He also spoke about <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/indian-premier-league">Indian Premier League</a> (IPL) franchise <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/rajasthan-royals">Rajasthan Royals</a> chances in the upcoming Season 12. <p></p> <p></p>"Rajasthan Royals joined a cancer organisation last year and play a game in pink and make awareness for that and had an unbelievable feedback. It has been 10 years, we thought it's time for a change for Rajasthan Royals and we are deciding to wear pink this year," Warne said.

I'll be disappointed if I don't see him play for India in all the three formats. He is so good, best young player I have seen from any country. I think he will be player of the series this IPL. Bringing back <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/jaydev-unadkat/">Jaydev Unadkat</a> was a good call. <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/shreyas-gopal/">Shreyas Gopal</a> and <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/krishnappa-gowtham">Krishnappa Gowtham</a> go about the way they bowl the leg-spin and off-spin they have. <p></p> <p></p>"The variety in top-order batsmen: <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/ajinkya-rahane/">Ajinkya Rahane</a>, (Rahul) Tripathi, (Jos) Buttler, (Sanju) Samson, (Steve) Smith, (Ben) Stokes, it is as good as in any franchise there is. So, there is no reason RR can make finals this year," Warne said.
