Former West Indies cricketer Shivnarine Chanderpaul recently revealed his favourite batsman at the present moment.

Shivnarine Chanderpaul was one of the greatest cricketers in West Indies cricket history. While he was initially famous for his unorthodox batting stance, he gradually became one of the most consistent performers with the bat. The legendary left-handed batsman is the second-most Test as well as international run-scorer for West Indies.

Recently in an interview with Sportstar, Chanderpaul claimed his present best batsman is the Indian captain Virat Kohli. It is a very unsurprising name as many experts have given the same view in the recent past.

Chanderpaul told Sportstar, “Obviously, it’s Virat Kohli. He has been working on all the aspects of his game, and the results are showing. He is working hard on his fitness; he works on his skills. You see him putting in the hard work, and he is one of those guys who always wants to do well.

“He’s proven it, day in and day out. You have to give credit to him for that. It’s not easy to stay at the top of your game for so long. You got to put in your work, and the results are showing.”

At present, Virat Kohli is the no.1-ranked ODI batsman while he just lost the top position of the ICC Test batting rankings to the Aussie star Steven Smith. While Kohli is standing in the second position of the ICC Test batting rankings, he is also standing in the 10th spot of the ICC T20I batting rankings.
