Recently, Virat Kohli led Team India, won the Test series for the first time in Australia, won the first bilateral one-day series and won the ODI series in New Zealand. In this win, he also played a vital role with his batting. Kumar Sangakkara, one of Sri Lanka’s great cricketers, is also convinced of his ability. Sangakkara praised Virat and said that there is no one in comparison to him at the present time. One day, he will be going to become the greatest batsman.
Virat scored 282 runs in the four test matches against Australia and 153 runs in three ODIs. He scored 148 runs in the first three matches of the five-ODI series against New Zealand. The Indian team defeated New Zealand in the first three ODIs.
In a conversation with a news channel, Sangakkara said, “Everything is perfect in Virat’s game. I think he has head and shoulders above the rest in world cricket today. I think if he continues his performance in the same way, then he will be able to enter the list of great cricketers in the next few years even if he did not become the greatest cricketer. ‘
Sangakkara is astonished by Virat’s success in all three formats of cricket. Former Sri Lankan captain said, “he makes runs from his extraordinary talent. he has a very solid way, which he truly believes. Understanding any circumstances, he has the ability to mold his game accordingly. He has a passion for cricket.”
The International Cricket Council (ICC) chose him one-day cricketer of the year for 2018-19. He has also been selected as the captain of the ICC Test and one-day team. Kohli is the first cricketer to win the ICC’s three Individual Awards together. Kohli has scored 39 centuries in 222 ODIs and 25 in 77 Tests.
