Continuing his dream run as the captain of the Indian team, Virat Kohli and team easily wrapped up the first test match at Galle. But former India captain, Saurav Ganguly, feels that there is still a lot to improve for Kohli as a captain.
The Bengal tiger has been keen admirer of Kohli’s captaincy and feels that there is still a lot for him to learn as a captain.
“India are perfectly balanced with so much firepower in their batting, bowling and fielding. Sri Lanka on the other hand, have a lot to worry about.”
“The last two years they have been wonderful, especially away from home. Under Anil they won everything in the West Indies and then came the home season. I feel India won’t be challenged in these conditions. Kohli is absolutely right when he said in the post match ceremony that ‘they have been clinical in their performance, ” he added.

“Virat hasn’t been tested yet. Sri Lanka is probably not the strongest Test side at the moment. For me, the fans as well as for Virat Kohli himself, the yardstick will be how well his side performs in South Africa, Australia and England,” said the former India skipper.
“Sri Lanka have a lot to think about on how to get batsmen like Shikhar Dhawan, Cheteshwar Pujara, Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane out. If they don’t bowl well they will have to field a lot in these hot and humid conditions,” Ganguly added.
