Former Australian cricketer Steve Waugh praised Indian skipper Virat Kohli stating he has the best technique in the world. Waugh further stated Kohli was one of the stand out players in Test cricket.
Waugh went on to scale Kohli with legends like Brian Lara and Vivian Richards. The Australian cricketer was quoted as saying, “He has got the game to survive anywhere, I think he’s got the best technique of anyone 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 the stand out player.”
Waugh further added, “And he likes the big occasion like Lara and Tendulkar and Richards and Javed Miandad and all the great batsmen. They want the big occasion and that brings out the best in their cricket.”
Virat Kohli reached a memorable milestone when he topped the ICC rankings for Test Batsman. Kohli is the seventh Indian and the first since Tendulkar to reach this milestone.
In the recent first Test against England, Kohli emerged as the highest scorer for the Indian team. He scored 149 and 51 runs in the first and second innings respectively.
