Australian veteran told Virat Kohli the best batsman in the world, know why
New Delhi Former Australian captain Ian Chappell has praised the current Indian captain Virat Kohli. Ian Chappell believes that Indian captain Virat Kohli is currently the best batsman in the world in all three formats, thanks to his superb cricketer shots and tremendous fitness. Chappell also ranked Virat Kohli as the best among Steve Smith, Kane Williamson, and Joe Root's Fave 4.
Ian Chappell said on "The R Show", "Virat Kohli is the best of the three formats in the group with Steve Smith, Kane Williamson, and Joe Root. There is no doubt about it. His record in cricket of all three formats is excellent. Especially in the limited-overs format, he continues to be a successful batsman. Virat Kohli is the number one batsman in the current ODI rankings of the ICC, while the rest of these batsmen are not even in the top 3.
Earlier, former England captain Kevin Pietersen has also admitted that Australian batsman Steve Smith also does not stay around Virat Kohli. Virat Kohli, who has scored over 20,000 runs including 70 centuries in international cricket, has an average of over 50 in all three formats, which is a record in itself. Chappell said that Virat Kohli's fitness also cannot be compared to anyone. The race between Virat's wickets is amazing.
At the same time, when Ian Chappell was asked why he considers Virat Kohli the best, Chappell said, "I like his way of batting. The last time the Indian team came to Australia, we interviewed him. Was told why he does not skimp like the rest of the batsmen in T20 cricket. "
He said, "Virat said that he did not want that kind of shots in his five-day format to come to his batting. In our limited time overs, Viv Richards had tremendous cricketing shots. He used to hit the ball so well There were fast runs. Virat Kohli is also of the same style. He likes to play traditional cricket shots. "
