Kohli's India need to win big tournaments, says Ganguly

Ex-captain Indian captain Sourav Ganguly has advised Indian team adjust their mentality in order to win big tournaments.

“India’s Virat Kohli is captaining an enormously talented team, but the players need to adjust their mentality to win big tournaments, having failed in the last seven,” he said

“It is a very good side. My only thing is that they need to win big tournaments,” Ganguly, president-elect of the Board of Control for Cricket in India, told reporters in Kolkata.

“I’m not saying they need to win every time. It’s not possible. But we have gone through seven big tournaments without winning one.”

“They are a much better side than that. That is the only area where they need to get themselves ready mentally.

“Talent is enormous, otherwise they couldn’t have played so well in the World Cup till the semi-finals. So that’s an issue which Virat needs to address. And that doesn’t happen in the boardroom.”

Replying to a question about Dhoni’s retirement, the former cricket said, “We will have to see what Dhoni wants,” Ganguly said of his former team mate.

“Now I will be in a position to find out and then we’ll decide on the way forward.”
