NEW DELHI: In­dian cricket veteran Su­nil Gavaskar has sug­gested that bat­ting sen­sa­tion Vi­rat Kohli is ready to re­place MS Dhoni as Test cap­tain.

“Till the fourth day, I said there is no alternative to Dhoni. But now that Vi­rat has come up with a hun­dred un­der try­ing cir­cum­stances and curbed his ag­gres­sion, he has dis­cov­ered a good part about him­self. He is now ready to take on the man­tle. This is some­thing to be looked at in a pos­i­tive man­ner be­cause that’s where the fu­ture is,” the former skip­per told NDTV.

Gavaskar also raised ques­tions about Sachin Ten­dulkar’s in­ter­na­tional fu­ture: “He was just a lit­tle bit lost (in Nag­pur). This is what I gath­ered from his body lan­guage. Maybe that is the sign.”
