Former Australian World Cup winning skipper Steve Waugh has backed Virat Kohli to break every record except Don Bradman’s average. Indian captain is doing a fine job for the Men in Blue. Kohli is the most consistent batsman of the current era. Thus, the talisman right-hander is continuing with his penchant of breaking and creating new records in the game.
Meanwhile, Virat Kohli had recently become the fastest batsman to complete 10,000 runs in ODI format. Kohli reached the milestone in just 205 innings, bettering the record of his idol Sachin Tendulkar. The right-hander has scored 62 hundred at the International circuit and looks good for many more.
Virat Kohli is writing new pages of history.
On the other hand, Virat Kohli is fit as a fiddle as he always paid high importance on his fitness. Kohli’s hunger for runs is insatiable and he is continuing his love affair with runs. Thus, Kohli is breaking every record in the book and looks set to break more.
Furthermore, Virat Kohli is going to be 30 years old soon. Therefore, Kohli still has got another eight years to play at the topmost level. Subsequently, if Kohli continues in the same style, he is going to rewrite the history books.
Sir Don Bradman had an average of 99.94.
“He’s (Virat Kohli) got the passion and hunger, the fitness, the desire, the intensity and he loves playing the game. Unless he gets seriously injured, I think he’ll break all the batting records besides Bradman’s average,” Waugh said while talking to Cricket.Com.Au.
On the other hand, Steve Waugh also praised the young sensation of Indian cricket, Prithvi Shaw. The 18-year prodigy batsman had a fine start to his career as he scored a hundred on his Test debut. Shaw was also adjudged the Man of the series for scoring 237 runs in his debut series.
Meanwhile, Virat Kohli will look to continue in a similar fashion.
