Virat Kohli, the Indian captain, is currently the leading run scorer in his team’s ongoing Test series against England. The 29-year-old experienced campaigner has notched a couple of hardly-fought centuries to go with three half-centuries. However, despite his impressive show India are 1-3 down in the series and are currently playing the fifth and final Test at Kennington Oval in London.

Recently, Sourav Ganguly, the former Indian batsman, has lauded Virat for the attitude he has shown towards his own performances. The appreciations came after the Delhi-born cricketer mentioned that India would’ve won had he scored more runs in the second innings at Edgbaston in Birmingham and the first innings at The Ageas Bowl in Southampton.

Virat’s attitude towards the game is and has always been different

Moreover, Ganguly hailed the Indian skipper for showing enthusiasm towards accepting his mistakes and most importantly working upon them. “He had said the same last time as well when asked by Mike Atherton after India’s defeat in Southampton.

Kohli had said that had he played a little bit more; India would have won the Test match. Big players like him take responsibility on themselves and they will never come up with excuses,” Ganguly was quoted as saying on India TV.

“Virat’s attitude towards the game is and has always been different from others. And before leaving, I would like to say that isn’t it strange how the captain and the coach think different,” he added.

After losing the first two matches, Virat’s men made a strong comeback at Trent Bridge in Nottingham, but couldn’t replicate their form in the fourth encounter. While the bowlers have done a reasonable job, the batsmen have blown hot and cold. In the last contest, India are trying to play for pride and put forth a strong show to end their campaign on a high.
