Virat Kohli will face his real competition on South Africa tour

New Delhi Dec 30: Spin legend Bishen Singh Bedi believes India skipper Virat Kohli is yet to face real competition and the upcoming tough tour of South Africa will test his batting as well as captaincy skills.

Bedi said Kohli will now face his real competition in the upcoming tour of South Africa. "Sindhu has achieved a lot over the years and I dare Virat Kohli would be struggling," the former India cricket captain said.
 
"She has been competing with the best of the world, but Kohli will now be competition with the best of world in South Africa. The tour of South Africa will be a test for Kohli," Bedi added.
 
Bedi's comments came in an event of the Sportstar magazine. The magazine was launched by Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore along with Bedi, hockey great Zafar Iqbal, national badminton coach Pullela Gopichand and PV Sindhu. A host of other sporting dignitaries from various fields were also in attendance.
