Team India is on the driver's seat once again, taming England in the fourth Test of the Pataudi Trophy to regain a 2-1 lead in the five-Test series. As India looks to seal the series in Manchester from Friday, it would be crucial to see how skipper Virat Kohli acts.

Meanwhile, Kohli's leadership qualities have been acclaimed by numerous experts in the past couple of years, having surpassed MS Dhoni as India's most successful skipper. Consequently, it has also drawn the plaudits from former Australian spin legend Shane Warne and former Pakistan skipper Inzamam-ul-Haq.

"They look up to him. He's got the respect of all the players. They back him, and they play for him. It's important for a captain that a team plays for you. I think the way Virat conducts himself, we've all got to say, 'Thank You Virat'," Warne was quoted as saying on Sky Sports.

Meanwhile, speaking on his YouTube channel, Inzamam said, "Credit goes to the Indian team for the way they are playing overseas at the moment. Having been bundled out for 191 in the first innings and how they played the game thereon for the next four days is highly applaudable."

"Credit also goes to the captain if a team wins the match despite being the underdogs at a stage. Kohli has brilliantly managed the side so far, with a mixture of youngsters and experienced lads. The notable thing was that he did not look demoralised at any stage, while his body language impacted the side," he concluded.
