Ganguly expects Kohli to lead India in World Cup

10-May-2016 / 3:36 pm
Kerala Updates: Former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly has expressed doubt whether Mahendra Singh Dhoni will lead India in the ICC World Cup to be held in England in 2019. Ganguly, who is the Cricket Association of Bengal president, has backed Virat Kohli to don the captaincy in the shorter version of the game too. Speaking to India Today, Ganguly said: "Every cricket team in the world plans their future. But my question to the selectors is three­four years down the line, do they see M.S. Dhoni as captain of India?" Ganguly has always been a huge fan of Dhoni's leadership skills, but he now feels it's time to pass on the mantle to Test skipper Kohli. "Dhoni has been captain for nine years, which is a long period. Does he have it in him to go for another four years? He has already given up Test cricket and now plays only ODIs and T20s," Ganguly said. "Virat Kohli is getting better every time. He is probably the best in the world in terms of consistency. His mental energy, tenacity is unreal. His attitude on the field is superb. His record as Test captain has been good. "So the selectors need to find an answer to whether they see Dhoni leading India in 2019? If the answer is no, then find a new captain. If the answer is yes, which I will find very very surprising, Dhoni continues," Ganguly said. Dhoni failed to take India to the final of the ICC World T20 at home despite a stellar show by Kohli. He has also been struggling with new franchise Rising Pune Supergiants in the ongoing IPL. "Decision on appointing Kohli as captain should go in terms of where MS goes from here?
