Danielle Wyatt, who scored two centuries in Twenty20 Internationals for England, is again grabbing the headlines with her congratulatory tweet for Virat Kohli. The swashbuckling English opener gave her wishes to Indian skipper for attaining No.1 ranking in ICC’s Test Ranking for batters.
The 29-year-old Kohli has been the talk of the town in the last week for smashing an eye-catching 149 when the things were tough for the visitors. Though he failed to repeat it in second innings, his excellent knock thumped former Australian Steven Smith in the longest form of batsman rankings.
The King – Danielle Wyatt
After replacing Smith in the latest Test ranking, International Cricket Council (ICC) took to Twitter to congratulate the batting mainstay. Meanwhile, Danielle added a symbol of the crown in the comments.
Danielle often termed Kohli as her favourite batsman and was always quick in congratulating him on a significant achievement. However, her wish for Indian captain has always been in the headlines for various reasons.
Turned the Tables:
Unlike the earlier tour, Kohli played an exceptional knock facing English bowlers on their tracks. He was the hot topic ahead of the first Test at Edgbaston.
Earlier, all the analysts across the world were after his performance in England. However, he shut all of them with the stunning return in the English conditions.
Kohli overtook all his 2014 combined tally right in his first game to show his class to the world.
Despite registering a sublime knock, the game was folded out by England team as they have got the collective team effort that was led by young Sam Curran.
Apart from Virat Kohli, none of the Indian batsmen stood in the middle thus thrashing Kohli’s heroic effort in vain.
All in all, the right-handed batting giant proved his worth to the world and will play a crucial role in visitors’ chances to make it big. The second game is scheduled to start on August 9th (Thursday) at Lord’s.
