Want to be a professional cricketer?
The batting coach of the India National Cricket Team, Vikram Rathour, has said that he has never seen a cricketer doing such hard work as the Indian skipper Virat Kohli does. Virat Kohli is arguably the best batsman in world cricket at the moment. He is racking up records for fun, and he is likely to reach the summit in this list in coming times.
Kohli is now eighth on the list of the most runs scored by a batsman in international cricket. The Delhi-based star has a very long career ahead and the kind of form that he has been in, it seems a considerable possibility that Virat Kohli will lead this chart too. The flamboyant Indian skipper has already smashed 70 international centuries so far and just seems to get better with days going by.
Now, Vikram Rathour has heaped praise on the Indian skipper and said that his work ethic is second to none in world cricket and he has never seen anyone work so hard.
Vikram Rathour Heaps Praise On Virat Kohli
“For me, the best thing about Virat Kohli is his commitment to the game. He wants to be the best player in the world and he works hard for that. He puts in the hard yards, and he is the hardest working cricketer that I have seen. Other than that I believe his adaptability is his biggest strength,” the former India batsman said.
“He is not a one dimensional player, he can change his game as and when required. He plays every format differently and that has been one of his greatest strengths,” Rathour added.
Virat Kohli Plays Exactly Like He Wants To: Vikram Rathour
“One of the best example in which I saw was in the 2016 IPL where he scored four hundreds and hit 40 odd sixes. He was going through a great patch of form and after that we had a tour to the West Indies. After playing like that for two months in the IPL, he goes to the West Indies and in the first match he scores a double hundred without hitting a single ball in the air,” he further said.
“So that kind of change to bring into your batting because you are playing a different format, not many cricketers can do that. With Virat Kohli, I think he can play the way he wants to play. He can play according to different situations and that I think is his biggest strength,” Rathour said.
