Legendary Indian first-class batsman, Wasim Jaffer has said that the Indian skipper Virat Kohli is the greatest-ever white-ball cricketer. Wasim Jaffer prioritized Virat Kohli in front of the great Sachin Tendulkar and the current vice-captain of the India National Cricket Team in the limited-overs setup, Rohit Sharma.
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. The flamboyant Indian skipper has already smashed 70 international centuries so far and just seems to get better with days going by.
Now, Wasim Jaffer has said that Kohli is the greatest ever white-ball cricketer that Indian cricket has ever produced. He was asked to chose among Virat, Rohit Sharma, and Sachin Tendulkar.
Wasim Jaffer Labels Virat Kohli As The Greatest White Ball Cricketer
Jaffer’s pick for the best white-ball cricketer for India was current captain Virat Kohli. He took Kohli’s name when he was asked to choose among Tendulkar, Kohli, and Sharma in an interview with CricTracker.
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 Kohli will lead this chart too.
Virat Kohli Has A Plethora Of Accolades To His Name
Kohli has grabbed a whole lot of national and international honours during his stint as an international cricketer. He bagged the Arjuna Award in 2013. He was honoured with the Padma Shri, India’s fourth-highest civilian award, in 2017. Apart from it, he has featured in a lot of ICC teams over the years across all formats and won the best cricketer award multiple times.
He has successfully ascended the throne of the Indian captain. Although Team India still hunts for an ICC trophy under him, there are no doubts that Virat Kohli is the most suitable candidate for Indian cricket in contemporary times.
