Virat Kohli has often been hailed as one of the greatest batsman ever born on earth. He proved his prowess in 2018 by sweeping all the major ICC awards. Many legendary players have heaped praises for this run machine and the latest addition in the list is of former Sri Lankan cricketer Kumar Sangakkara.
The legendary player said: "Everything about Virat's game stands out. I think he is head and shoulders above anyone else in world cricket today, and I think going forward, he will be one of the greatest ever cricketers, if not the greatest ever."
With 39 centuries in 222 ODIs, Kohli is just behind Sachin Tendulkar who amassed 49 centuries in 463 ODIs that he played. Apart from this, he also has 25 hundreds in 77 test matches.
Sangkara continued and said: "He has this incredible knack of scoring runs and has a very, very solid method that he believes in....if you see the tempo he bats with, it hardly changes. He does read the situation very well. He is a very passionate guy, you see that in his expressions on the field... it's the overall aspect of both the person and how he has sorted his batting and his attitude. It's not just about the ability Virat has but to understand the way to handle pressure not just on the field but also off the field, and the expectations."
