The former Indian Captain Sourav Ganguly highly praised Virat Kohli calling him “a special player” for his match winning innings against South Africa in Durban.
The 29-year-old superstar right handed batsman scored an outrageous ton in the 1st ODI against South Africa and took his team over the winning line.
Sourav Ganguly said, “Virat is really, really special and the more we see him the more we feel that he’s unbelievable. The chase last night was just remarkable. He is a special player. I don’t see a reason why not he’ll get close to Sachin Tendulkar’s record in one day cricket. Fantastic, that’s just one word about Virat Kohli. He just gets better and better and better. The sky is the limit for him and it is such a pleasure watching him bat every time on television.”
Indian Captain Virat Kohli already registered 33rd ODI centuries to his name and amazingly twenty of those have been scored while chasing the game, which arguably makes his the greatest chaser the game has ever witnessed.
South Africa’s 17-match winning streak was ended after the men in blue thrashed the Proteas at Durban in 1st ODI, as Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane build an massive partnership of 189 runs for the third wicket.
Many cricket experts was amazed by knock played by Virat Kohli, as the Indian Skipper scored his 33rd ODI hundred from just 105 balls. As they name him ‘Chase Master’ of this modern era.
“I think still two of the greatest. One is Sachin and one him. There’s no doubt about it and god knows what’s going to happen in the next 7-8 years he plays for the country if he stays fit.” Ganguly signed off
