They lost the three-match Test series but gave South Africa a run for their money. They turned the tides emphatically in the ODI series, winning it 5-1. At present, they lead the three T20Is (0-1). In (almost) all their victories, Indian skipper <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/Virat-Kohli" target="_blank">Virat Kohli</a> has played a vital role. He has been aggressive, constantly backing the boys, and made plethora of runs as well. <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/Sourav-Ganguly" target="_blank">Sourav Ganguly</a> lauded his approach, and labelled him as the flag-bearer of Indian cricket. Further more, Ganguly claimed that while he has seen purple patches including his own Kohli's efforts should be reckoned as 'genuine greatness'. <p></p> <p></p>Ganguly told <em>Times Now</em>, "Kohli is a flag bearer of Indian cricket. I have seen a lot of purple patches including mine, Dravid's and Sachin Tendulkar's. I genuinely believe that this is not just a purple patch for Kohli, this is genuine greatness. Kohli has done brilliantly. Overseas Test series wins will come - the only places he has captained India in full series are West Indies and South Africa," he added. <p></p> <p></p><strong>Upcoming challenges</strong> <p></p> <p></p>"The next two series in Australia and England will define him as a captain. I have seen MS Dhoni captain, I have seen Rahul Dravid captain but I have never seen anyone perform this consistently with the bat as captain as Kohli has," concluded Ganguly. <p></p> <p></p>India play two more T20Is before wrapping up a successful South Africa tour.
