Indian captain Virat Kohli has been in unbelievable form in South Africa, and former skipper Sourav Ganguly feels that Kohli is undoubtedly on the path to greatness.

Speaking to India Today, Ganguly said, "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 amassed 558 runs in the ODIs against South Africa. “I have seen MS Dhoni as captain, I have seen Rahul Dravid as captain but I have never seen anyone perform this consistently with the bat as captain as Kohli has," Ganguly added.

On the upcoming series' against Australia and England, Ganguly feels it will show what kind of captain he is. "The next two series in Australia and England will define him as a captain. He has got the ability. The best thing he does as a captain is that he leads by example. Look at the hundreds he got against South Africa,” he asserted.
