Australian great Ricky Ponting feels if Virat Kohli performs at his best in the World Cup, Men in Blue have a great chance of landing their third trophy.

The Indian skipper has been in exceptional form in international cricket and is the number one batsman in ODIs and Test cricket.

When he was asked to pick one batsman between Sachin and Virat, he said: “I don’t think we can get to the conclusion till Virat’s career is over. Only then will we have a clearer picture. Sachin is a legend. Yes, you can say Virat is piling up runs. His Test average is more than 50 (53.76). But Sachin maintained that (average) in 200 Tests. Virat’s ODI record, though, is unbelievable. That’s why I feel India are a very dangerous side. If Virat has a good World Cup, India will win.”
