Don't compare Kohli's IPL captaincy record with that of India: Ganguly

Kolkata, May 14 (PTI) Former captain Sourav Ganguly on Tuesday insisted that Virat Kohli's IPL captaincy will not have an impact in the World Cup as he enjoys a good record as an ODI skipper.

The biggest advantage for Kohli will be the support of two very successful leaders -- Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Rohit Sharma -- on whom he can fall back on during testing situations.

Royal Challengers Bangalore's repeated failures in the Indian Premier League have put the spotlight on Kohli's leadership skills but Ganguly said Indian captaincy is a different ball game.

"Don't compare Virat Kohli's IPL captaincy record with that of India. His captaincy records for India is very good actually. He's got him in his team as the vice-captain. Dhoni is there. So he's well supported," Ganguly told PTI on the sidelines of a promotional programme.
