Ahead of his first ever meeting with Indian skipper Virat Kohli after being elected as BCCI president, Sourav Ganguly said that he will talk to Virat Kohli like a BCCI chief talks to the captain. Ganguly was asked whether he will speak to Kohli about his decision to opt out of the T20 series against Bangladesh. "I will meet him on 24th. I will talk to him like a BCCI president talks to the captain. He is the captain, he can take the call," he said.
Virat Kohli has been playing non-stop cricket since ODIs against Australia in March. This is probably why Kohli decided to skip the Bangladesh T20I series. Ganguly often showers praises on Virat Kohli, his leadership skills and playing style.
Recently, the BCCI president-elect had said that Indian team under Virat Kohli is capable of doing well in the Day-night Test format. "Day-night Test is the way forward. Every country has to play day-night Test, that's a long-term future for Test cricket. They (India) are a good side, they will win day-night Test matches also. There is no difference in day-night Test matches and day Tests. It's just a different ball. They are such class players, they can win," Ganguly said.
