Former Australia fast bowler Brett Lee says that there will be a war between captaincy of different styles in the final match of the World Test Championship (WTC Final) between India and New Zealand this month. Lee also said that Indian skipper Virat Kohli’s cricketing mind and Australian pacer Pat Cummins’ tricks with the ball make him the best batsman and bowler respectively in the world.
“Kohli is a dynamic player and an inspiration to the team. I think it’s because he knows how important Test cricket is to him, to the team and to the country. The pacer said, “We know Kohli does well in big opportunities and he would like his team to be the first winners of the WTC.” It means a lot to them.
Lee, who took 310 Test wickets and 380 ODI wickets in his career, described New Zealand captain Kane Williamson and Kohli as different types of captains. According to Lee, Kohli is aggressive and Williamson is conservative without getting bored. Lee said, ‘Kohli and Williamson are different players. Williamson is more conservative without getting bored and has a good cricketing mind. I admire his level of restraint, so I say he is not a boring captain.

He said, ‘Kohli is on the other side and an aggressive captain. There is no right or wrong answer to these two as I have played with captains who were both irreversible and aggressive. But it will be interesting to see who will win.
