"There will be legends from this generation as well. You’ve just got to give it a bit of time. I think someone like a Virat Kohli is already a legend.

The Indian team at present are playing the five-Test series at home against England. With two wins in three games, India have gained an unassailable lead with fourth Test due to begin on December 8 at Mumbai.


The Indian Test skipper, Kohli, is yet to lose a Test at home as India's captain and has extended his winning streak to 17 unbeaten Tests. He has lost only one Test so far ever since he took over full-time Test captaincy from Dhoni in 2014.
