Former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly expressed awe and admiration for Virat Kohli and Team India following Kohli’s historic century in the World Cup semi-final against New Zealand. Kohli’s century marked a significant milestone, and Ganguly believes that the record may be challenging to surpass in the future.
Ganguly, often referred to as the ‘Prince of Kolkata,’ acknowledged Kohli’s achievement and warned that the former Indian captain is not finished yet, predicting more records in the days and months to come. Kohli, playing in the semi-final at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, reached his century in a monumental moment, bowing down and soaking in the emotions.
In an interview with ANI, Ganguly shared his admiration, stating, “I don’t have any adjectives. I don’t know if anyone can break such a record. And this is when Virat Kohli is not finished yet. He is only 35, and he will play more for India. It is a monumental achievement.”
Ganguly, who played alongside Sachin Tendulkar throughout his career, drew a comparison, saying, “I played with Sachin all my life, and when he got to 49, I thought how big is that? Kohli has gone past him, so my congratulations to him.”
He praised the overall performance of Team India in the World Cup and expressed his fascination with their gameplay. Ganguly extended good wishes to every member of the team for the final match. India won the semi-final against New Zealand by 70 runs, with Mohammed Shami taking 7 wickets and Daryl Mitchell‘s century going in vain. The Men in Blue will face either Australia or South Africa in the final.
