CricketSourav Ganguly says Virat Kohli needs to improve in Tests

Srinagar: Former India skipper and BCCI chief Sourav Ganguly has said that batting superstar Virat Kohli has to improve in Test cricket.

Virat Kohli began 2023 in an extravagant way, scoring two centuries in three innings – with scores of 113 and 166 not out against Sri Lanka.
Kohli’s return to form in ODIs and T20Is come as a huge boost for India in a World Cup year. But Kohli is yet to find his groove back in whites, and although he has played just two Tests in the last six months.

Ganguly, whose prediction of Kohli’s return to form came true , expects the former India captain to put up a much-improve show in Tests, given the importance of the series that starts February 9 in Nagpur.

“Yes, absolutely. He has batted really well – against Sri Lanka, against Bangladesh. He will have to improve in Test cricket because India depends on him and a very crucial series against Australia is approaching which I believe will be a cracker of a contest. I expect it to be very competitive. Both are extremely good teams and it’s quite possible that these two teams go on to play the World Test Championship final,” Ganguly told Sports Tak.
