He is very exciting and has got passion for sure, which is good, but he sometimes needs to pull that enthusiasm inside a bit. He will make a good leader one day," Waugh said on Friday.<br /> <br /> Recently, miffed at being given out to a controversial catch during the second One-Day International (ODI) against Zimbabwe, Kohli, who is captaining the side in <a href="/tags/Zimbabwe/post" target="_blank">Zimbabwe</a> tour, ended up arguing aggressively with on-field officials even after the third umpire ruled the decision against him.<br /> <br /> Waugh also praised India's regular skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, saying he has achieved everything as a captain.<br /> <br /> "Dhoni has won every trophy you can possibly win. That is what he can do as a captain. He has done a brilliant job. Very aggressive, very positive and he has been a fine captain for India," he told reporters on the sidelines of an event.<br /> <br /> On senior India cricketer <a href="/tags/Sachin-Tendulkar/post" target="_blank">Sachin Tendulkar</a>, who will be playing his 200th Test match later this year, Waugh said the champion batsman will achieve something that nobody could have ever thought of.<br /> <br /> "It's a great achievement. To play 198 Tests it is amazing. He has broken every record. He will probably hold every record besides the highest average which <a href="/tags/Don-Bradman/post" target="_blank">Don Bradman</a> has. An amazing player and 200 Test matches that is like the holy grail. I don't think anyone thought they would get to 200," he said about Tendulkar.<br /> <br /> With the Indian Cricket Board finding itself in a soup in the recent time, Waugh on Friday asked the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to look at the larger interest of the game.<br /> <br /> "They (<a href="/tags/BCCI/post" target="_blank">BCCI</a>) are obviously a very powerful group. They have a big influence on world cricket. They have got to take on board the best interests of the game, obviously Indian cricket is in a good state, the side is going on well, the cricket board makes a lot of money."<br /> <br /> "But at the end of the day, for the good of the sport, the longevity of the sport, the BCCI have got to see the bigger picture," he said.
