Virat Kohli talks up ‘understanding’ between him and BCCI president Sourav Ganguly


Indian Captain Virat Kohli said he is looking forward to a “high-level, professional” discussion with newly-elected BCCI President and former skipper Sourav Ganguly when the two meet to thrash out the way forward for the national cricket team.

After taking the charge of BCCI former Indian Captain and legend of Indian Cricket called for strong actions and called Virat Kohli as one of the most important men in the sport for India has he acclaimed him for being fearless and hailed him as a complete team man who understands what the team needs and is ready to deliver in all situations.

“I am going to meet him now. I am looking forward to a good discussion. He is someone who has played a lot of cricket before, who knows the situation we are in, what the team needs, the requirements of Indian cricket,” said Kohli at an Audi event here on Thursday.

“So you need a good, professional, high-level discussion. It will be a healthy discussion because I am playing currently and he has played before, there will be an understanding of these things. I have had good discussions in the past with him and I expect the same this time,” he added.

One thing Ganguly emphasized on was winning ICC trophies as the Indian cricket team had come very close of inning the trophy on every occasion in the last 6 years but failed to cross the final line.

On Wednesday, the 47-year-old Ganguly said he has a fair understanding of Kohli and the team’s requirements and he was committed to fulfilling those during his tenure.
