Former India captain Sourav Ganguly has praised current skipper Virat Kohli for coming out in support of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, whose place in the T20 team is being questioned.
"He is a fantastic captain. I don't know what he does inside dressing room or what he does tactically, as I'm too far away. I don't know what he speaks in team meetings but the way he looks after his players is remarkable," Ganguly was quoted as saying in a PTI report.
"I keep saying about MS Dhoni and what I see of Virat on MS is fantastic. A champion player (Dhoni) who's probably on his last leg of his career and Virat coming and saying that he's my man and I want him to play. You just change a player," he added.
VVS Laxman and Ajit Agarkar are among those who have questioned Dhoni’s place in the T20 team.
Further praising Kohli, Ganguly said, "I like Virat Kohli and when I see him on the field, I sit on my sofa and watch. I've said it many times he's a champion player. When I see him captaining India, he wants to win in all conditions. He's very passionate.”
