Virat Kohli Is The Best Cricketer in The World: Jhulan Goswami
A member of the Indian Women’s cricket team which narrowly lost the World Cup final to England very recently, Jhulan Goswami heaped praises on Indian Men’s captain Virat Kohli and conceded that he is the best cricketer in the world at the moment.
“He is a phenomenal cricketer. He is the best cricketer in the world. The way he is playing and leading from the front is fantastic,” Goswami who is the leading wicket-taker in ODI’s was quoted as saying by the India Today.
When asked if she wants to give any advice to Virat, Goswami said:
“Virat should continue his brand of cricket.”
Goswami also lauded Kohli for concentrating on fitness to a great deal and said that even the women cricketers follow strict diets now and hit the gym on a regular basis.
“We follow a strict diet. We go to the gym on a regular basis. Cricket has changed, it’s become a powerful game. You need to have strength. You need to maintain a good diet. You have to contribute in every department of the game today,” Goswami said.
Goswami was accompanied by two of her teammates Smriti Mandhana and Veda Krishnamurthy who were also part of the successful World Cup campaign for India. Speaking on the upcoming India-Australia ODI series starting tomorrow; Mandhana said:
“They have been playing exceptional cricket for the last 4-6 months. I don’t think they need our advice. They should just go with the flow, enjoy what they are doing and I’m sure they will beat the Aussies.”
KL Rahul who happens to be a good friend of Veda Krishnamurthy was praised by the female cricketer as she backed him to succeed in the series against Australia.
“KL is doing exceptionally well in whatever opportunities he got to play for India. It’s very unfortunate that he gets injured or falls sick more than is expected but I think he’s going to come back strong and do well against Australia.
“He has done well against them before and I think playing at home will be a huge advantage for us. Don’t let the Aussies get on top,” Krishnamurthy said.
