There have been many comparisons between former Indian cricket team captain Ganguly and Mahendra Singh Dhoni. But now on the captaincy of current captain Virat Kohli and Sourav Ganguly, former Indian cricketer Irfan Pathan spoke while saying that Kohli’s captaincy is like Ganguly. Both cricketers are extremely passionate about the game and often showed it through their aggressiveness.
Pathan said during a show that he (Kohli) is very similar to Sourav Ganguly. A boy who stands with his players is quite good. Virat Kohli realizes that he goes out of his way to bring the youth back to the team. He gave an example of Rishabh Pant saying that we have seen with Pant, we have seen press conferences, he goes and says no, we need to bring back someone like Rishabh Pant based on his ability.
He said, ‘We have seen many under-19 players who have gone missing after playing the under-19 World Cup. They could not fulfill their potential at the international level that they had. Apart from this, we have many cricketers playing under-19 World Cup who are playing for India. It has a bridge in the form of first-class cricket.”
