Sourav Ganguly on Virat Kohli: BCCI President Sourav Ganguly was known for his aggression when he used to play cricket. Whether it was batting or captaincy, his aggression was worth seeing in both the departments. Virat Kohli is also seen in the same style on the field. However, when Sourav Ganguly was questioned about his and Virat’s aggression, he dismissed this question and said that the comparison should not be on the aggression but on the skill of the player and in this case Virat is better than him.
Sourav Ganguly said in ‘Ranveer Show’ on ‘You Tube’, ‘I don’t think there should be a comparison on captaincy. The comparison should be in terms of skill as a player. And in this department he is more efficient than me. We played in different phases and we played a lot of cricket. I played in my generation and he is playing now. I have played more cricket than Kohli but he will overtake me in this matter. He is an amazing player.
Virat Kohli has returned to form after a long time. He had to wait for 1020 days for his international century. He returned to the side from the Asia Cup after taking a month’s break and after playing small and important innings in the opening matches, played an unbeaten 122 off 61 balls in India’s last ‘Super Four’ match against Afghanistan .
When Sourav Ganguly was asked whether he had given any advice when Kohli was struggling. To this Ganguly said, ‘They (the team) travel a lot, I do not get time to meet them.’ Ganguly said, ‘The media keeps an eye on everyone’s performance. We do not know what is going on in the media because after reaching the hotel, I first say at the reception that I do not want newspapers.
What did Ganguly say on the controversy with Greg Chappell?
During his cricket career, Sourav Ganguly had a dispute with coach Greg Chappell. After that he was in and out of the team several times. He saw many ups and downs in that period. On the question related to this period, Ganguly says that cricketers should take their poor performance in a positive way. He said, ‘I did not go through any mental trouble during that period. There have been both good and bad times for me. I have enjoyed playing the game without pressure, under low pressure and high pressure. I don’t consider it wrong.’
