XtraTime Desk: India’s legendary opening batsman Virender Sehwag heaped praise on skipper Virat Kohli’s captaincy style after the Men in Blue won their first ever series on Proteas soil. The Nawab of Najafgarh lauded the aggression of Virat and thinks that he is an upgraded version of former skipper Sourav Ganguly.

"Kohli's aggression can be compared with Ganguly. In fact, he is an upgraded version of Sourav Ganguly. Under Ganguly's captaincy, we saw some incredible wins overseas and such has been the trend so far with Virat Kohli," said Sehwag.

Though Kohli’s record as captain suggests that he is among the best captains that India has ever produced, but according to Sehwag the comparisons of Kohli with former skippers were totally unfair.

"Kohli is the No.1 captain in terms of series wins. If we analyse the past eight series wins under his captaincy, we'll find that he is one of the best captains we have ever seen. Having said that, I believe that we should not compare him with the best of previous captains. He needs more time and experience as captain to reach where the past skippers are," he told India TV.

In this ongoing ODI series the Indian skipper has scored 429 runs in 5 ODIs against the Proteas to lead the Men in Blue from the front.

"He has gained confidence with the captaincy. Unlike others, he has matured and has taken his individual game to the next level. He doesn't take the pressure of captaincy. In fact, he has improved his game with the responsibility. He has brought the trend of fitness in the camp," Sehwag added.

According to Sehwag, Kohli’s best thing is he brings out the best from his teammates.

"The fighting team is the power of captain Kohli and I strongly believe that this team can do wonders in England and Australia. The best thing about Kohli's captaincy is that he brings the best out of individuals. The day bowlers stop performing Kohli's downfall will begin. His strength lies in the current bowling line-up," Sehwag said.
