Team India has been on a rampage in the past few months. Virat Kohli and his men have been ruthless and defeated Windies, Sri Lanka and Australia in consecutive series. Everything seems to be going right for men in blue and the whole world is going gaga over their domination. But the former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly believes India will be challenged when they travel to countries like South Africa, England, Australia.
“Virat Kohli has got qualities of being one of India’s great captains, there’s no doubt about it. I think next 15 months will be important for him when India go to South Africa, England, Australia and the World Cup. I think he is in the right direction. He is preparing his team, he’s picking players and giving opportunities,” said Sourav Ganguly, while talking to India Today.
“They will beat New Zealand and Sri Lanka, there’s no doubt about it. India will be challenged when they go to South Africa but I feel this side has got the ability to do well there as well,” he added.
The President of CAB believes the team has been better than any other opposition in the recent past and except the loss in the ICC Champions Trophy final, they have been relentless. Ganguly reckons that India will win the next 2 series against New Zealand and Sri Lanka easily.
“India completely dominated Sri Lanka and Australia. They have looked a far-far superior side in the batting and bowling departments. That has been the case for Indian cricket in the last one and a half years. Except that blip in the Champions Trophy final, they have been a remarkable side. New Zealand and Sri Lanka will come next and I think India will be relentless again. They are far superior side than those two teams,” Ganguly added.
