India vs Australia: Virat Kohli better than Sachin Tendulkar, claims Saurav Ganguly
Sourav Ganguly compared Indian captain Virat Kohli to legendary Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar. Former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly backed current incumbent Virat Kohli after the humiliating 333-run loss against Australia in the first cricket Test match at Pune. Ganguly complimented Kohli, who scored 0 and 13 on the difficult Pune track, by comparing him with Indian batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar. Kohli has been extremely successful against Australia in their own backyard and Ganguly said that even Tendulkar would have found it difficult to match the current Indian skipper's record against perhaps the most difficult team in the world. "Kohli is human and he had to fail one day. He failed in both innings in Pune, Ganguly said. "To watch those four back-to-back Test match hundreds against Australia in Australia was surreal. I have not seen even Sachin Tendulkar do that," he added.
