Miandad hails Kohli a genius and the world's best

File image

Kohli has won many admirers through the prolific run spree in all three formats of the game and had steered India to a victory over South Africa on Wednesday through his 34th One Day International century. Before him, only Sachin Tendulkar and Sanath Jayasuriya boasted an ODI century in nine different nations. They have thus avoided defeat in the six-match series and could even record a first ever win in South Africa if they win the fourth match to be played at the Wanderers in Johannesburg. "However, our bowlers will not make it easy for him to score there", he told Times Now.

In an interview to a Pakistani website, Miandad pointed out Kohli's technical prowess and uncanny knack to rescue India from hard situations and guide them home as the hallmark of a great batsman. "If a batsman's technique is bad, he can score runs once in a while, but he will not be able to do that consistently". "Kohli is a genius who is the best batsman in the world". "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", he said. He featured in 124 Test matches for Pakistan, making 8832 runs at an astounding average of 52.57.

On the topic of tensions between India and Pakistan, Afridi said it is important for the two countries to be on the same page. "I have always maintained that the better the relations are between India and Pakistan, ham bohot saare dushmano ke mooh par thappad marenge (we will deliver a blow to those who are against us)", he said. The Pakistani team collapsed on mere 69 runs in 29.3 overs in response to India's 273. When the team needs it, and you stand up, and you are able to pull through. Apart from being one of the greatest batsmen of his generation, Richards was also known for the aggression he employed during his time as captain and how it seeped down to his players.
