Internet Desk: Virat Kohli and his team perhaps got the biggest compliment coming from former great Sunil Gavaskar. The Little Master reckons the current Indian team has the ingredients to go down as the greatest Indian ODI team ever.

Speaking to NDTV, Gavaskar said, "Well, comparisons are not quite correct but this is a very, very good team. I think by the time this team finishes, I think it is going to go down as the greatest Indian one-day team ever. Because the balance is so good. The batting is right down to number 8 or 9. You have bowlers who can bowl, whatever, whenever they are asked and therefore, I think you take all aspects into consideration and you know that this is a really, really special team, captained by a very special player."

Kohli and his team will be eyeing another series whitewash after their recent feat in the emerald isle. The Men in Blue will require another two wins to achieve back to back series wins over Sri Lanka and Australia.

Talking about India’s recent dominance in the shorter format, Gavaskar said, " No. The Sri Lankan team wasn't a very strong team and that's only fair but this Australian team is an experienced team. Probably not the same kind of batting line-up as Hayden, Gilchrist or Ponting, Michael Clarke, Mike Hussey were there but I think this is a very good Australian team. The Australians never give up and I think, what they are missing at the moment is one more batsman who can make a difference and they are missing one more bowler. But as far as India is concerned, they are not choosing the team that takes the field against them.

"They are just playing against them. And as Virat Kohli said, they are going to be ruthless and they are going to be relentless, they are going to be pursuing victory in every game and the fact that in all three games they were put under pressure, which never happened apart from one game in Sri Lanka, when Dhoni and Bhuvneshwar Kumar took them home, over here in all three games they were put under some sort of pressure but to come through that pressure and go on to win easily is the hallmark of a great team, a champion team," Gavaskar added.
