Former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly is never shy in expressing his thoughts about the game in India. Time and again, he has showered praises on the current Indian skipper Virat Kohli. Ganguly, who is all set to launch his first book, recently praised Kohli yet again. He remarked that he has a lot of faith in the Indian skipper and believes that the times ahead are very good for the Indian team
As per the interaction with the News18, Sourav Ganguly was asked to distinguish the approach he had as a captain and the approach Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni have had as the leader of the Indian side. Comparing Virat and Dhoni, Sourav noted that the two individuals are very different personalities altogether.
He rightly cited that Virat Kohli is more expressive on the field. He is somewhat similar to how Ganguly himself used to be during his playing days. On the other hand, MS Dhoni was very calm as the captain of the Indian team. However, he did point out that the pressure is always there, whether a person is calm or expressive.
On the lighter note, Sourav Ganguly noted that Kohli has taken the expressive nature a level higher. He also joked that he needs to ask Kohli about the fist he usually shows on the field. “Kohli has probably taken one step further. I need to ask him who does he show the fist to every time a wicket falls. I need to find that out from him,” quoted Ganguly.
Kohli taking India to greater heights
Speaking further on the same note, Sourav hailed Virat Kohli as arguably the best player in the world cricket at the moment. He feels that Kohli will take Indian cricket to greater heights. The team has already tasted a lot of success under the leadership of Kohli. “I have full faith in Virat Kohli to take Indian cricket to the next level,” quipped the former Indian cricketer.
