Virat Kohli is two-times more aggressive than me: Sourav Ganguly

Kolkata: Former Indian cricket skipper Sourav Ganguly has heaped praise on Indian Test skipper Virat Kohli calling him twice as aggressive as him.

Kohli, who has been in brilliant form in 2016 across formats, guided India to their fifth successive Test series win in a row. The latest one came against England after India won the fourth Test by an innings and 36 runs.

"His aggression is two-times more than mine," Dada told reporters on the sidelines of the Sourav Ganguly Foundation and Sourav Ganguly Cricket School launch.

During his playing days, Ganguly was hailed for his winning mindset and aggressive captaincy. The likes of Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh, Zaheer Khan have often hailed the Prince of Kolkata as India's best skipper till date.

Just like Ganguly, Kohli too is known to hold the bull by its horns. He backs his team-members to the hilt and never hesitates in giving opponents a piece of his mind.

The dashing right-hander recently led India to their fifth successive Test victory after India`s innings and 36 runs win at Mumbai, their biggest triumph over England in Tests at home.

Kohli also became the first Indian captain to win five successive Test series -- 2-1 vs Sri Lanka in 2015; 3-0 vs South Africa in 2015-16; 2-0 vs West Indies in 2016; 3-0 vs New Zealand and 3-0 (leading) vs England in 2016-17.
