The Indian skipper Virat Kohli is enjoying a remarkable run in the ongoing ODI series in South Africa and has led from the front with the bat. He slammed 34th century of his ODI career on Wednesday in the third match at Newlands in Cape Town and went on to stay unbeaten on 160 at the end of the innings. However, the former Pakistan cricketer Javed Miandad has heaped praises on Kohli and believes he is the best cricketer in the world.

It was the second century for the Indian captain in the series and has been dismissed only one so far. He has already accumulated 318 runs in three matches and is looking hungry for more. Interestingly, he is the only centurion across the Test and ODI series so far. He had smashed a ton in the second Test in Centurion and now had managed a couple more in the limited-overs format.

Kohli is a genius

Javed Miandad, in an interview to Pakpassion.net, showered praises on Virat Kohli and believed that he has a lot of time to play his shots. He was overawed by the consistency of the Indian skipper and has become the fan of his shots which are absolutely pleasing to the eyes. “In Virat Kohli’s case his batting method is what allows him to score runs not just once but almost every time he comes in to bat. If a batsman’s technique is bad, he can put some runs on the board once in a while, but he will not be able to do that consistently which is exactly true in Kohli’s case,” he said.

Miandad also added that it is the ability of Kohli to understand the weakness of the opposition that lets him score runs comfortably. “To me, the mark of a great batsman, like Kohli is the fact that he can vary his technique by quickly understanding the strengths and weaknesses of the bowlers. Kohli is a genius who is the best batsman in the world,” the former Pakistan coach explained further.
