The Virat Kohli vs Rohit Sharma has resurfaced once again after their contrasting journeys in the just-concluded Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020. Rohit Sharma further bolstered his reputation of IPL’s most decorated skipper by guiding Mumbai Indians to a record fifth IPL title.

On the other hand, Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore crashed out at the playoffs stage. The latest failure has further extended Virat Kohli and his team’s wait for their first-ever title. The right-handed batsman has been playing for RCB since the inaugural season in 2008 and has been their captain since 2013.

Ever since IPL 2020 has ended, the fans of the two batting superstars have been engaged in a battle on social media platforms. Several former players calling for Rohit Sharma to be made the captain of India’s limited-overs teams has only added fuel to the fire.

Amidst all these, an old video of Sourav Ganguly’s interview has started circulating on Twitter. In the video, the BCCI president was comparing Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma and said that the latter is way ahead of the former in terms of batting and consistency.

“Virat Kohli is way ahead of Rohit Sharma in terms of batting, performance and consistency. Virat Kohli does not have a competitor,” said Sourav Ganguly and also praised the India skipper for his performance in different parts of the world.

Here is the clip of the interview:

Meanwhile, Virat Kohli will be seen in action soon when he leads India in the upcoming series against Australia. India are scheduled to play three ODIs, three T20Is and four Tests in Australia. Kohli will play all the limited-overs games and the first Test before returning to India for the birth of his first child.

Rohit Sharma, on the other hand, has been rested for the limited-overs series as a precautionary measure due to his hamstring injury. He will travel to Australia later for the Test series, starting on December 17.
