"Virat Kohli is a talented player and a potential captain for sure. He is very exciting and has got passion for sure, which is good, but he sometimes needs to pull that enthusiasm inside a bit. He will make a good leader one day," Waugh said.
Recently, miffed at being given out to a controversial catch during the second ODI against Zimbabwe, Kohli, who is captaining the side in African nation tour, ended up arguing aggressively with on-field officials even after the third umpire ruled the decision against him.
Waugh also praised India's regular skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, saying he has achieved everything as a captain.
"Dhoni has won every trophy you can possibly win. That is what he can do as a captain. He has done a brilliant job. Very aggressive, very positive and he has been a fine captain for India," he told reporters on the sidelines of an event.
On senior India cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, who will be playing his 200th Test match later this year, Waugh said the champion batsman will achieve something that nobody could have ever thought of.
"It's a great achievement. To play 198 Tests it is amazing. He has broken every record. He will probably hold every record besides the highest average which Don Bradman has. An amazing player and 200 Test matches that is like the Holy Grail. I don't think anyone thought they would get to 200," he said about Tendulkar.
