“See, Virat Kohli is Virat Kohli. You cannot really challenge that. But I think even without him this Indian team has really done well in the Asia Cup. Virat makes a massive difference at number three. But without Virat in the tournament, I think Rohit has done a wonderful job,” Waqar Younis said in an interview with Khaleej Times.
