Virat Kohli's aggression and 'in-your-face' style makes him a different captain: Allan Border

Australian cricket legend Allan Border picked three captains to look out for in the upcoming 2019 World Cup - India's Virat Kohli, England's Eion Morgan and Australia's Aaron Finch. The former skipper did not rank the trio, but feels that the Indian is quite different because of the aggression and boisterous-type attitude.Border, who led Australia to World Cup triumph in 1987, said Kohli's aggressive and "in-your-face" style of captaincy makes him a different kind of a leader than Morgan and Finch. "Virat Kohli, I think he's a different type of captain. He's a bit more of a boisterous-type player and wears his heart on his sleeve," Border told cricket.com.au.

"So the players know if they've stuffed up because he's one of those really in-your-face-type skippers." Border, who captained Australia in 178 ODIs, however, refused to rank the trio in any order but is mighty impressed with Morgan under whose leadership England have reached the pinnacle of ODI cricket. 

"England, I think they're doing exceptionally well. They've brought a different game plan to the table which is going to be interesting to see how it pans out in the World Cup. They're a dangerous side because of it and you know as the bowling group you're under pressure," he said."The way it looks to me, they might drop the odd game but they're going to win enough games to get through to the semi-finals and that's what it's all about.
