Virat Kohli’s aggression was a “little over the top” in the recent tour of South Africa but it is all a part of his development as a charismatic India captain, feels former Australia skipper Steve Waugh.

India enjoyed decent success in the 58-day tour, during which the side lost the Test series 1-2 but clinched the ODI and Twenty20 series 5-1 and 2-1 respectively. Kohli’s stellar performance with the bat was among the biggest positives to be drawn from the gruelling sojourn.

“I have seen him in South Africa and I feel that he was little over the top. But that’s a learning thing for a captain,” Waugh told PTI in an interview on the sidelines of the Laureus World Sports Awards
