Ganguly Played Catalyst, Kohli Has Taken Team India to Another Level: Lloyd

Ganguly Played Catalyst, Kohli Has Taken Team India to Another Level: Lloyd”

Kohli captained India to victory in a Test series in Australia previous year and in his captaincy, India has developed one of the most potent fast bowling units in the world.

After being annihilated 0-3 against Australia during the 1999-2000 tour, India, under Ganguly, drew the 2003-04 Border Gavaskar Trophy 1-1. "I think Sourav Ganguly gave the team a real steel that we will not be dictated by quick bowlers because we're going to find some of our own players", Lloyd said on the Sony Ten Pit Stop Show.

On Wednesday, Marnus Labuschagne picked teammate Smith ahead of Virat Kohli in the longest format but accepted that the India skipper's numbers in white-ball cricket is second to none. Ganguly went to Australia fully prepared for the bouncing ball. Beating India in India was so hard, but you had a chance against them when they played away from home.

During his chat with BCCI president and former opener Sourav Ganguly, Mayank Agarwal asked the former India captain about his partnership with batting icon Sachin Tendulkar. The legendary cricketer won 21 out of 49 matches with 11 of them coming away from home. "Now if you've got these three, you bring in a quality spinner and a couple of good pace men, now you are in business worldwide", said Lloyd. "I think he's been the catalyst for Indian cricket to be a worldwide force", he said.

The former U-19 World Cup-winning captain walked out to open against Sri Lanka in Dambulla marking the beginning of the glorious chapters of Indian cricket.

He further said that Kohli has taken the team to another level.

Talking about Kohli, Lloyd added: "Kohli is also a great leader and he fears nothing".

"I think my own view about Kohli is that he is there to win matches".

Llyod, who played nine Tests and eight ODIs for England and is one of the most renowned commentators today, said that Ganguly's aggressive mindset as captain helped India win matches away from home.
