Team India has ascended to new height after they thrashed mighty India at home sealing the series 3-0 with two match still in hand. India’s living legend Sunil Gavaskar is full of praise for the team registering the top spot in ICC ODI ranking.
Talking to NDTV, Gavaskar rendered the current Indian team under the captaincy of Virat Kohli could be the greatest Indian team ever.
He 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” he added.
“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,” the former Indian cricketer said.
