Superstar Virat Kohli has been phenomenal in all formats, played some exceptional innings this year. Mickey Arthur previous has coached top rated batsman like Hansie Cronje and Gary Kirsten, but he said that whenever Virat Kohli walked down the pitch, he just sit and enjoy his batting.

“I love watching Virat… He’s phenomenal and is one batsman I sit down and watch whenever he comes to the crease. He’s right up there with the best I’ve seen… I still recall his 141 in the second innings of the Adelaide Test almost two years ago. He’d got a hundred (115) in the first innings as well,” Arthur told to the Telegraph. 

“As I’ve said, Virat’s phenomenal… So is AB de Villiers… Joe Root is very good and David Warner’s fantastic. Having made a mark first in the T20 format, Warner had the shots. He’d lacked a good defense. Not so now… Indeed, after the early years, he’s taken his game to another level. I’m an admirer of Warner and follow his performances,” he said.

“Virat’s an interesting captain… He’s exuberant and very passionate about what he does. His passion for the top job comes through in abundance,” the former South African and Australian coach said.
