Debasis Sen, London: An in form Virat Kohli alone cannot win a series against England here, feels former India captain Sourav Ganguly. Ganguly, who was doing commentary here for the series in the last couple of tests including the one at Lords will be flying back to Kolkata for his prior commitments. The left hander in a freewheeling chat with Xtra Time said “Indian team needs to remember that Virat Kohli even at his best will not win you a series here. The other players need to support him and only then India can hope for doing something great. When Indian won the series in 2007 and drew in 2002, it was not just Tendulkar who got runs. Everyone from Dravid, Laxman, Sehwag and myself scored runs and that helped the team perform well.”

The former Indian captain also wished Virat a speedy recovery as he has some concerns with his bat during the Lords test match. Even when he came out to bat, he was grimacing in pain and the signs did not look entirely positive for him.

“We want him (Kohli) to get fully fit and everyone plays well along with him so that we can get to a situation where we can win the test match at Trent Bridge and make a comeback in the series,” said Ganguly.
