Hyderabad: Former Indian cricketer and coach Anshuman Gaekwad feels that the current Indian team, under Virat Kohli, is the best team the country ever had. The veteran says the team is so good because of its balance and world-class players in it.
Gaekwad served as Team India coach twice, in 1997 to 1999 and then August 2000 to October 2000. Speaking to Sportskeeda, he said, “If you ask me, I believe that Virat Kohli has the best possible team in Indian history. Bowling, batting, and balance of the team are the best. Up till now, we had no pace bowlers. We had Karsan, Roger, Kapil, but they didn’t win matches for you all the time. Today, they have a battery of pacers with options, and they are winning matches for you.”
Virat Kohli took over from MS Dhoni as the captain of the Indian Test team in 2014 and the limited-overs teams in 2017. Since then, he has done really well as captain across formats. While he is yet to guide India to a win in ICC tournaments, the overall performances have been very good.
