By winning ODI series, Virat Kohli has proved that his both captaincy and batting skills are unmatchable. Meanwhile, Virender Sehwag said that Kohli is an upgraded version of former captain Sourav Ganguly.
“Kohli’s aggression can be compared with Ganguly. In fact, he is an upgraded version of Sourav Ganguly.”
“Under Ganguly’s captaincy, we saw some incredible wins overseas and such has been the trend so far with Virat Kohli. He is the No.1 captain in terms of series wins. If we analyse the past eight series wins under his captaincy, we’ll find that he is one of the best captains we have ever seen.”
“Having said that, I believe that we should not compare him with the best of previous captains. He needs more time and experience as captain to reach where the past skippers are. He has gained confidence with the captaincy. Unlike others, he has matured and has taken his individual game to the next level. He doesn’t take the pressure of captaincy. In fact, he has improved his game with the responsibility. He has brought the trend of fitness in the camp.”
Sehwag further added: “The fighting team is the power of captain Kohli and I strongly believe that this team can do wonders in England and Australia. The best thing about Kohli’s captaincy is that he brings the best out of individuals. The day bowlers stop performing Kohli’s downfall will begin. His strength lies in the current bowling line-up.”
