Melbourne :Former Australian captain Steve Waugh said Virat Kohli has got the best technique in the world and is one of the stand-out players in Test cricket. Comparing Kohli to the likes of Brian Lara and Vivian Richards, Waugh further stated that all these legendary cricketers were “big occasion” players and the Indian batsman has shown similar traits so far.
“He (Kohli) has got the game to survive anywhere. I think he’s got the best technique in world cricket. He and AB de Villiers have got the best techniques and AB de Villiers is not playing Test cricket, so that makes him (Kohli) the stand-out player,” said Waugh.
“And he likes the big occasion like Brian Lara, Sachin Tendulkar, Viv Richards, Javed Miandad and all the great batsmen. They want the big occasion and that brings out the best in their cricket,” he added.
