BCCI President, Sourav Ganguly has showered praises on the star Indian batter Virat Kohli and said that the 33-year-old is more skillful than him as a batter. Kohli seems to have come back to his form during the Asia Cup and even broke his century duck during India’s final match of the tournament against Afghanistan. Virat played a dominating knock of 122 runs off 61 balls as India registered a 101-run win in their final Super Fours game on Thursday. This was Kohli’s first international century since 2019.
On the YouTube channel TRS Clips, as quoted by News 18, talking about Kohli, Sourav Ganguly said, “The comparison should be in terms of skill as a player. I think he is more skillful than I’m. We played in different generations, and we played a lot of cricket.”
He further added, “I played in my generation, and he will continue playing, probably playing more games than I did. Currently, I have played more than he has but he’ll get past that. He is tremendous.”
This is not the first time the BCCI President has come in support of Kohli. Ahead of the Asia Cup, in an interview with India Today, Ganguly hailed the star batter as a big player and said that he would find form during the tournament.
Sourav Ganguly elaborated, “Let him practice, let him play matches. He is a big player and has scored plenty of runs. I am hopeful that he will make a comeback. He is just not being able to score a century and I believe he will find his form in the Asia Cup.”
Team India will be hosting Australia for a three-match T20I series at home later this month and Virat Kohli will be looking to continue his form.
