Pakistan legendary batsman Javed Miandad showered praise on Indian batting maestro Virat Kohli, calling him a ‘genius’ and the best batsman in the world.
“Kohli is a genius who is the best batsman in the world,” said Miandad, quoted media. The praise comes in light of Kohli’s recent epic run making, the Indian skipper hammered 160 runs against South Africa, an inning which was jut a master class performance by Kohli.
Miandad, hailed as one of the greatest batsman ever and probably the best produce by Pakistan consider Kohli’s batting technique, the reason behind his success. Miandad was of the view that Kohli has the ability to change his technique, as per the bowlers.
“In 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 that 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.
