Former India batsman Rahul Dravid feels it is incorrect to compare Virat Kohli as skipper with Mahendra Singh Dhoni. While he observes that the young Delhi batsman has hardly put a wrong foot as captain, the 24-year-old Kohli will eventually be judged by his own results.

Speaking to Cricinfo, Dravid observed that Kohli has marshaled his men well in the Zimbabwe series but every team requires time to adjust to the ways of a new leader.

"I think the mistake we shouldn't make is comparing him to Dhoni. They are two very different people. In the end Kohli is going to be judged by his results. If we keep looking back and say, 'We want someone like Dhoni', I don't think we are going to get it," Dravid said, adding: "I think it'll take a little bit of adjustment from the team as well."
