Virat Kohli can be India’s best-ever captain, says Sunil Gavaskar

Indian captain Virat Kohli stands on the verge of scripting history as India look poised to register their maiden Test series victory on Australian soil. India have already retained the Border-Gavaskar Trophy and even a draw in the final fourth Test will see the visitors claim the series to achieve a monumental feat. And now, former Indian captain Sunil Gavaskar believes Kohli is still a work under progress as a captain and if he keeps growing in the way he has so far then he can be the best-ever Indian captain that India have had.

“As a captain, I still have my little concerns but I think now what has happened, he (Virat Kohli) is a fast learner, and we have seen that in this series. If he keeps learning, he is going to be the best-ever (captain) that India has had, in terms of results and in terms of getting the players to perform at the highest level,” Gavaskar told Sony Sports on Sunday.

India kicked-off the Test series against Australia on a brilliant note with a 31-run win in the first Test at Adelaide before Aussies bounced back to win the second Test by a good margin of 146 runs. India hit back in the third Test to make it 2-1 and retain the Border Gavaskar Trophy by winning at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground by 137 runs.
