Virat Kohli has been shattering records every time he steps out on the field, be it in any format. His batting has reached the highest level along with top-class fitness as he continues to thrill the cricket fans on his own. He was in amazing form in the recent South Africa tour as well as he as the only centurion from both the sides in the Test series and then what followed in the ODIs is known to everyone. However, even Pakistan umpire Aleem Dar feels that there is no player in the world who can even come close to the Indian maestro at the moment.
Kohli had a decent IPL 2018 season but failed to take his RCB side to playoffs. He is set to leave for Ireland and England soon. He badly wants to resurrect his dismal record in England and is preparing himself for the upcoming tour where Team India will play 3 T20Is, 3 ODIs and 5 Test matches.
Many people try to copy him
Aleem Dar is one of the best umpires in the world and is also amongst the elite panel of the International Cricket Council (ICC). The umpire on the field is in the best possible position to watch the game and he must have seen so many heroics from Virat Kohli so far. As reported by various media outlets in Pakistan, Dar showered praises on the Indian skipper calling him the best batsman in the world at the moment.
“Virat Kohli is the world’s best batsman in all formats. Many people wish to copy Virat but I don’t think there is any player who can come near him at the moment,” he said. These words should motivate Kohli to do well in the near future as it has come from one of the best umpires going around in the cricketing world.
