Before their first match the team India‘s captain Virat Kohli  is suggested by Sourav Ganguly to enjoy his captaincy and prove his strength to the selectors. Ganguly thinks that it would help regular skipper MS Dhoni to come out of his comfort zone and redisover himself as a captain.

“I want Virat (Kohli) to win this tournament (Asia Cup),” Ganguly told a news channel here today.

“This would help Dhoni to come out of the comfort zone and help him to reinvent himself as a captain,” he added.

Ganguly explained that it would be a test for Virat as a captain and he should play freely and enjoy the game so that he can prove his strengthto the selectors.

“It would be inappropriate to say that Kohli would be under pressure in the Asia Cup because even he knows that Dhoni would be the captain in the 2014 ICC World Twenty20. So I would advice him to enjoy his captaincy and prove his strengths as a captain,” Ganguly said. He thinks that Kohli should try to win the Cup so that he can prove himself as a strong captain.

When Ganguly was asked if the pressure of being the captain would be imprinted on Kohli’s batting, Ganguly made everyone to remember that how this Delhi batsman played over the top with the bat in the tri-series in West Indies last year.

“It would not be right to predict on Kohli’s captaincy now. But I would like to remind everybody the way Kohli led the team and batted in the West Indies.” Ganguly said.

“He had scored a 100 there and that helped India to get into the finals,” he added.

This 42 years old ex captain of team India suggested the new captain to go down the field with five bowlers, three of them must be pacers. And Kohli should bat at number four whereas Ajinkya Rahane should go at number five. Because he thinks in the absense of Dhoni the situation is going to be quite hard for R. Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja.
