Virat Kohli is a big factor for India in World Cup – Younis Khan
Kohli has been in outstanding form since the 2015 World Cup. He is now 2nd in the list of most century makers in ODIs behind Sachin Tendulkar. His fitness regime has turned the Indian team into a sharp-fielding unit and world beaters.
Younis Khan said many young Pakistani players now want to play like Virat Kohli and want to copy his body language.
“Virat Kohli is also loved by Pakistanis. Today, many Pakistan players want to play like Kohli and be fit like him and have his body language. Even in the Asia Cup where he did not play, the stadiums weren’t jam-packed. He is a big factor for India in the World Cup,” Younis said during a TV show.
Well, as Younis Khan said, we already came across former Pakistan cricketers revealing the same in the recent interviews. Virat Kohli, who came into the side before the World Cup made himself as a force to reckon for India in the international circuit across the formats.
Coming to India’s campaign in the ICC World Cup 2019, they will first lock horns with the South African team on June 5th followed by the game against the defending champions Australis and the runner-up of 2015 World Cup New Zealand.
