Australian great Steve Waugh wants his son to emulate Virat Kohli. He also said that Kohli is the best batsman in the world.
Kohli received high praise from Steve Waugh who also said that he is confident about next generation of Australian players
Australian legend Steve Waugh has been so impressed with Virat Kohli that he has told his 16-year-old son, Austin, to aspire to play like the Indian skipper
Steve Waugh who took Australian cricket to pinnacle of glory in the early 2000’s is pretty much impressed with Kohli’s development over the years
“I think he is probably the best batsman in the world,” Waugh told The Mumbai Mirror.
“Technically, he is fantastic. I have a 16- year-old son and I have told him ‘if you need someone as your role model, I think he should be Virat Kohli’. He should aspire to play like him.
“I like aggression in players if it can be controlled. Sometimes, Virat crosses the line a little bit but I like his passion.
“Virat Kohli will go down as an all-time great. I think (Ajinkya) Rahane will also get into that category.”
Waugh said he was confident Australia could bounce back from their Ashes defeat and the loss of a raft of experienced players over the past few months.
But Waugh says Australia has reason to be optimistic as they embark on a new era under the leadership of Steve Smith.
“Every side goes through transition with varying degrees,” he said.
“We have lost some experienced players in Haddin, Michael Clarke, Chris Rogers, Shane Watson.
“It is a changeover period, but we have got enough talent in Australia.
“I am a big believer in the theory that there is someone always there to bridge the breach.”
