Right now the Indian skipper is in form of his life, in the first ODI against South Africa he has scored a wonderful ton, and he followed it up on Cape Town where he scored his 34th ODI hundred, in that match on the banking on his century Team India registered a wonderful victory and took an immune lead in the series.
The former Pakistani captain congratulates Virat after that wonderful knock, and accolades about him as a “genius who is the best batsman in the world”.
In an interview, the legendary Pakistani Batsman said that Virat Kohli has got all the skills and techniques in the world and on the basis of that he governs team India in the difficult situation and guided them towards victory, and he believes that is the mark of a class batsman.
Miandad voiced: “In Virat 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 which 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. Kohli is a genius who is the best batsman in the world,”
Miandad also wishes the Indian U 19 team who emerged as champions in the World cup, and also particularly mentioned about the U 19 team mentor Rahul Dravid, Throughout the World cup Team India were unbeaten and In the Semi-Final they tear apart their arch-rivals Pakistan and won the match by 203 runs, in that match two Pakistani players only made it to the double digits as they were all out in 69 runs.
The former Pakistani Skipper express his thought about that match, and he said: The loss to India in the ICC Under-19 World Cup was by a big margin of 203 runs which is hard to take but if truth be told, our team was lucky to have progressed that far given the inexperience of our players. Of course, victory and defeat are part of any sport, but we need to accept that there was a huge difference in terms of skills between both teams. India is a huge country with a bigger population than Pakistan, yet our players are able to challenge India in cricket which tells me that we have the potential, but we simply do not have the system that can support and get the best out of that potential,”
