Karthik to walk on Virat Kohli footsteps
Mumbai, March 4 (CRICKETNMORE) - Moments after being appointed captain of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) for the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) season, wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik said he would like to emulate current India skipper Virat Kohli and lead from the front.
"Virat is a captain who leads by his action. He is somebody who shows with his performance and that is something that I can try and emulate -- lead by example rather than speaking, go on the ground and show with the scores or the way I play etc," Karthik told reporters here on Sunday.
Robin Uthappa was named vice-captain of the two-time champions.
