New Delhi: Noted coach Rajkumar Sharma, who played a pivotal role in shaping up Virat Kohli's career, feels that his ward's aggressive captaincy resembles a lot with Sourav Ganguly's methods but insisted that he should also learn the ropes from current skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

"Virat is an aggressive player by nature. He is someone who always likes to attack and take the opposition head on which is also reflected in his captaincy. For me, Virat belongs to the Sourav Ganguly 'School of captaincy' which is to attack the opposition from the word 'go'," Sharma told PTI during an interaction on Thursday.

Just like any concerned coach, Sharma is also aware that aggression should be blended with caution which is the hallmark of a good captain.
