Meanwhile, Nasser Hussain recollects those days.
Earlier, under the captaincy of Mohammad Azharuddin, the Indian team wasn’t a threating force in the overseas and always used to be the defensive minded. Then came Sourav Ganguly, who completely changed the scenario with his ruthless captaincy.

Further, he went on to add saying that the Indian skipper Virat Kohli has been sensational for the country. He believes that Virat Kohli can break every record of Sachin Tendulkar before he calls time on his career.
