There is no doubt about the fact that Team India skipper Virat Kohli is the greatest modern-day batsman in the world. He has scored the bulk of runs across all three formats of the game.
Well, some of his shots leave everyone in awe. Kohli has matured as a cricketer quite well in the last few years. He seems unstoppable at the moment and scored a magnificent 75 in the opening One-day International against England at the Trent Bridge in Nottingham.
At the age of 29, Kohli has already become a legend of the game and his contributions are simply exceptional across formats.
With the Indian tour of Australia slated to be held later in this year, the Australian public hopes for a special batting performance from Kohli Down Under.
Moreover, the Head of Cricket for Channel Seven, David Barham said that the Aussie public always appreciates good cricket. This will be the very first time that Kohli will be leading the Indian team in Australia as a full-time captain across formats.
Channel seven calls Virat Kohli a polarising character:
“Kohli is a polarising character, but I think Aussies love Virat Kohli and I think Virat Kohli will be as big a star of the summer as much as our guys,” Channel Seven’s head of cricket David Barham told Fairfax Media.
Barham further stated he was confident of the fact that Kohli will be successful in Australia. He has batted quite brilliantly in Australia so far and will look to continue his golden run Down Under.
Barham added that both Indian and the Aussie cricketers were definitely on par when it comes to the skill sets and the fans.
“If he makes hundred after hundred, we’ll talk about Virat Kohli. I’m sure he’ll do it in his own way and he will be niggling, doing what he does – fantastic. It’ll make for a great summer’s cricket. We’ll be celebrating the Indian players and their skill as much as our players,” he said.
