Sourav Ganguly was God on the off side. And was also known for his on-field aggression. But who's that cricketer with a more powerful adrenaline rush than Dada?

According to Ganguly, current Indian Test skipper Virat Kohli is two-times more aggressive than him. "His aggression is two-times more than mine," he told reporters on the sidelines of the Sourav Ganguly Foundation and Sourav Ganguly Cricket School launch.

During his time as the India captain, Ganguly was an aggressive leader, famously celebrating India's Natwest triangular Series win in 2002 by taking off his shirt at the Lord's cricket ground. Kohli recently led India to their fifth successive Test victory after India's innings and 36 runs win at Mumbai, their biggest triumph over England in Tests at home.

Kohli also became the first Indian captain to win five successive Test series -- 2-1 vs Sri Lanka in 2015; 3-0 vs South Africa in 2015-16; 2-0 vs West Indies in 2016; 3-0 vs New Zealand and 3-0 (leading) vs England in 2016-17.
