The Netherlands cricket team shared admiration for former Indian skipper Virat Kohli before their match against the Men in Blue in the ICC Men’s ODI World Cup 2023. Netherlands captain Scott Edwards emphasized Kohli’s consistency and effectiveness in cricket.

Virat Kohli has been in good form in the World Cup 2023, having scored 543 runs in eight matches with an impressive average of 108.6 and a strike rate of 88.29. He has hit four fifties and two centuries. He is the leading run-scorer for his team in the marquee tournament.

The Delhi-born cricketer achieved his 49th ODI century in the recent match against South Africa at Eden Gardens in Kolkata on November 5. The batter equaled the legendary Sachin Tendulkar’s record for the most centuries in international cricket in the 50-over format.

In a video uploaded by Star Sports on X (formerly known as Twitter), Scott Edwards and other players praised Kohli, acknowledging him as a pivotal wicket. Edwards emphasized the importance of dismissing him early, especially when defending a score.

“Virat Kohli obviously, he’s someone that’s a massive wicket. It’s a poetry in motion, that’s what I always think, so yeah, it’s good.
