The Indian cricket team is currently doing great in the ongoing Test series in South Africa. Recently India scored its consecutive 11th home series win after they took an exceptional 2-0 lead by beating South Africa.

Former Australian all-rounder Shane Watson said that there was no reason why the Indian cricket team under Virat Kohli couldn’t replicate the domination shown by the Australian cricketers like Steve Waugh and Ricky Ponting.

When asked if the Indian skipper, Virat Kohli could lead his team to build a lead over world cup like the goats of Australian cricket. He said:

“It is going to be hard to replicate, but there is no reason why India can’t do it,”

He also said that the current side has depth in all the facets of the game. He said:“There is no doubt that India has got the depth in all facets… batting, bowling and fielding,”

He added: “The depth in Indian cricket is incredibly strong. It has got the luxury of having someone like a Rohit Sharma opening the batting and scoring lots of runs,”

Shane Watson who is regarded as one of the finest all-rounders of modern-day cricket, recently, hailed India skipper Virat Kohli for being a great leader and for doing a great job with the side. Talking about Kohli at an event in Chennai on Monday, Watson said:

He has done a great job with the Indian team.” Watson added: “He has been playing so well in all formats. Whatever he is doing right now is certainly working and the team is responding to his leadership.”
