No question of replacing Virat as captain: RCB team director Hesson
“We don’t have that perception that Virat controls things. But maybe he has had his learnings from the past (mistakes) while moving forward,” Hesson said during a media interaction on Thursday.
“There has been no question mark over Virat’s captaincy during the last couple of weeks (of discussions),” Hesson clarified.
“…we have been very much aligned, and he has been more than happy to take our advice from our experience,” the former New Zealand coach added.
“There will be a big focus on recruitment. Once auction gets completed, the work starts then, not a week before the tournament starts. We would have clarity in roles that players need to perform,” he said.
“During Vijay Hazare and Mushtaq Ali Trophy, we would like to see players we want to fit in. It’s more about finding out how players build context around performance, conditions and pressure situations,” he said.
“Form is a factor, but we need to be more holistic in terms of how we talent scout. We look at a four-year period as then they are ready to deliver when put under the pump. It doesn’t happen after one good season,” he said.
