Gaurav Kalra: And once again from your vantage point just observing Virat Kohli as a captain in South Africa, England and now in Australia do you believe there is definite progress been made just tactically and emotionally how he is handling himself as the leader of the pack?

Anil Kumble: Yes absolutely. I think he has made a lot of progress. You know we saw even in England we saw glimpses of some of the selections that we felt could have been different. In Australia, he has been spot on. Yes Perth because of the injury concerns or whatever it was. But otherwise his tactical field placements and we saw that in Sydney where there was a different set of field. Although India had scored 600 plus runs there was only one slip but a couple of shot mid wickets, short square legs, a deep square leg and then trying to bowl fuller and make the batsmen play those shots. So that's how I think Labuschagne got out and that is something is evident and now he is wanting to believe that he can set different fields and that is something you want a captain to be doing. And I think that is very encouraging for Indian cricket that he is been able to you know whatever mistakes was made in England and South Africa. The team not just him but the team overall has been able to manage not to do that in Australia.
