Sourav Ganguly reckons Virat Kohli has to cross a long path to break Sachin’s record

Virat Kohli and his men had an outstanding time in neighboring country Sri Lanka as they decimated the hosts and won all the matches across all 3 formats. The tour brought so many records for the skipper and he keeps climbing the ladder of success.

The 28-year-old brought up his 30th ODI century and now is on par with the Australian legend Ricky Ponting. Virat Kohli is now only behind the great Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 49 international centuries. There is increasingly a speculation that Kohli is next in line to get past Tendulkar’s record. But former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly feels he has a long way to go to break the record.

“Virat has to cross a long path to break Sachin’s record. He is a remarkable player and I wish him all the very best for future. Both of them are from different generations, so facing a bowler of a below par standards is not in Virat’s hands,” said Ganguly as quoted by Xtratime.

9-0 in Sri Lanka was remarkable

India won all the 9 matches on the Sri Lankan tour and totally dominated the opposition. The Prince of Kolkata feels that the victory was remarkable but the team will face a bigger challenge while traveling to countries like Australia, South Africa and England.

“The tour in Australia, South Africa and England would be much tougher but the way India has beaten Sri Lanka 9-0 is just remarkable. The team is doing really well in last two years against West Indies on their home soil, as well as they played extraordinary cricket against New Zealand, England and Australia at home. This is a very good team,” added Sourav Ganguly.

After the success of KSCA and TNCA, West Bengal is also set to have its own league.“We are taking with star and they are ready to telecast the matches too. We are only thinking about the schedule of play. As you know, nowadays the cricketers always have a packed schedule,” concluded the former Indian captain.
