Former India skipper Sourav Ganguly has asserted that he has a lot of hopes from India skipper Virat Kohli.

In the chat, Sourav said, “When Virat Kohli plays, wherever you are, you will come and watch that, because he is playing. That is his impact. When you look at him, you will get to know that this man has a mission of making his team the best.”

Ganguly also expressed his views on the Yo-Yo test and said that there are reasons behind the test as cricket has changed over the years and has now become a fitness-oriented sport. He described, “There is fitness and Yo-Yo test. People criticize it but there is a reason behind these tests. You have to be mentally tough. Now, cricket is fitness oriented and sports has changed over the years. I have a lot of hopes on Virat Kohli and nation believes in him.”

Ahead of India’s five-match Test series against England, Sourav predicted that the Indian batsmen will have to perform if India is to win the series in England.

The former Indian skipper said, “(It will depend) on the batsmen. You have to score 400 runs in Test cricket. If they get 400 runs in the first innings, they will win Test matches. They are a good team. If they bat well, they will do well in England. They can win the Test series. India has got a big chance of winning.”

England team will also be put to a test in the five-match Test series as they have failed to win any of their last three series with just one match won. The last time India toured England was under the leadership of MS Dhoni. The Indian side lost the five-match Test series 3-1 after the first match ended in a draw in 2014.
