Kohli upgraded version of Ganguly : Sehwag
India’s captain Virat Kohli has been praised for winning one-day series against South Africans after decades. Former India Dashing opener Virender Sehwag also praising Kohli. Sehwag has complimented that Kohli is the upgraded version of former Indian captain Ganguly.
“Kohli 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 told in a TV channel interview.
“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 added.
The 39-year-old believes Kohli’s greatest strength lies in bringing out the best in his teammates.
“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,” Sehwag said.
