Kohli is a genius and best batsman in the world: Miandad
Mumbai :Virat Kohli has left cricket fraternity in awe with his prolific run scoring ability in all three formats of the game. Kohli, who scored his 34th ODI hundred to fashion Indian cricket team’s win against South Africa in Cape Town on Wednesday, keeps receiving praise from both past and present cricketers across the world.
The latest to join the club of Kohli admirers is Javed Miandad, former Pakistan cricket team captain and one of the legends of the game. Miandad, who was known for an aggressive brand of cricket during his playing days, declared Kohli as the best batsman in the world during an interview with pakpassion.net.
Underlining the importance of having a right technique to become a great batsman, Miandad attributed Kohli’s remarkable success to his correct batting technique and ability to adapt to different conditions and bowlers.
“In Virat Kohli’s case his batting method is what allows him to score runs not just once but almost every time he comes in to bat. If a batsman’s technique is bad, he can put some runs on the board once in a while, but he will not be able to do that consistently which is exactly true in Kohli’s case. To me the mark of a great batsman, like Kohli is the fact that he can vary his technique by quickly understanding the strengths and weaknesses of the bowlers,” he said.
