Pakistani cricket legend Javed Miandad is in awe of Virat Kohli’s batting and has picked the India captain as his favorite batsman, saying his file “itself tells a lot”.
The former Pakistan captain picked the present India skipper as his favorite due to his “classy” batting.
Speaking on his YouTube channel concerning the expertise and depth current within the present Indian squad, Miandad particularly praised Kohli for his enviable stats and the way in which he achieved them.
“I was asked who is the best in the Indian cricket team, so I choose Virat Kohli,” Miandad stated.
“I haven’t got to say a lot, his efficiency itself tells lots. People have to admit this as stats are seen.
“Virat performed really well in South Africa; even on an uneven wicket, he scored a hundred. You cannot say he is scared of fast-bowlers or he cannot play on bouncy pitches or he doesn’t play spinners well.”
Miandad, who aggregated 8832 runs in 124 Tests and 7381 runs in 233 ODIs for Pakistan, acknowledged that each Rohit Sharma and Kohli make batting look straightforward.
One of the hardest rivals of his time, Miandad is thought for his outspokenness.
On Kohli, he added, “He is a clean hitter. Look at his shots, it feels so good to watch him bat. He has class.”
