Virat Kohli

A former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag has once again trained his guns on Virat Kohli, saying currently there is no one in the team who can stand up to the India skipper and point out his mistakes on the field.

Sehwag had earlier attacked the India captain for his selection policy.

"I think Virat Kohli needs some players who can point out his mistakes on the field," Sehwag said in a TV show.

"Every team has four-five players who advise the skipper and help him avoid mistakes on the field. I don't see that in the current Indian squad.
