Pakistan fans and experts have always had varied opinions on Virat Kohli and another Pakistani batter has come out in the public and claimed that in 50-over cricket he is better than the Indian batting maestro Kohli.

Virat is one of the greatest batters and captains that world cricket has ever seen. His numbers speak for themselves and the class with which he bats is a reason for his massive fan following. He has 74 international centuries to his name and is only 26 tons away from equalling Sachin’s record of 100 international centuries. 

There have been a lot of comparisons between Pakistan batters and Virat Kohli over the years. Babar Azam is a name that often gets compared to Virat and it has been the case for the last many years. Meanwhile, another Pakistani batter has come out and claimed that he is better than Virat Kohli in the 50-over format.

Pakistan batter Khurram Manzoor has claimed that he has a better List-A record than the modern-day Indian batting legend and everyone should stand after him in the rankings and even the likes of Virat Kohli would come second to him in the list. He made the bold statement on the YouTube channel of Nadir Ali.

The right-handed batter said, “I am not comparing myself with Virat Kohli. Fact is, in 50-overs cricket, whoever is there in the top 10, I am the world no.1, after me stands Kohli. My conversion rate in List A cricket is better than him. He scores a century every six innings. I score a century in every 5.68 innings. And based on my average of 53, over the last 10 years, I am ranked fifth in the world in List A cricket.”

Manzoor has represented Pakistan on several occasions and made his debut for the nation in 2008. He played for his country in a total of 26 games, including 16 Tests, seven ODIs and three T20Is. Khurram last played for Pakistan in the T20I format in 2016 and since then he hasn’t been able to make his return.
