Sourav Ganguly questions Virat Kohli's captaincy following India's draw with West Indies

New Delhi: West Indies sensationally escaped with a draw in the second test match against India, but rains wasn't the only aspect to be blamed.

Former Indian cricket team captain Sourav Ganguly questions Virat Kohli's captaincy tactics after he failed to win the second test.

As reported by Indiatoday, Ganguly said,

"Ashwin has been the main bowler for India. He has been among the wickets and scored a lot of runs. The wicket in the morning was a bit fresh. So, probably Ashwin could have started with the proceedings in the morning."

Sourav also pointed out that Virat needs to be using Umesh Yadav as a wicket taking bowler.

He added, "I think Kohli needs to use Umesh a lot better. I think he is a far better bowler than that. He only bowled 12 overs. I know when you play with five bowlers, one of them gets slightly under-bowled. But I think he has got to use Umesh as a wicket-taking bowler. He has got a lot of ability. But all said and done, more than the Indians, you have to give credit to the likes of Blackwood, Chase, Dowrich and Holder. They showed lot of guts, a lot of fight, they were exceptional."

Ganguly also said, "I don't see any changes in the Indian team. They will go with the same side in the third Test. They are playing at St. Lucia and I think that will be a result-oriented wicket. Kohli just has to use the bowlers a bit better. Ashwin has been exceptional, Mishra has been a bit unlucky. The fast bowlers have bowled well. Kohli needs to use Umesh as an attacking bowler."

Despite this draw, Dada expects India to wrap up the series comfortably by winning the third test.
