Former West Indies legendary bowler Courtney Walsh believes Virat Kohli’s hunger for every Test run is a great sign. The Indian skipper scored his 24th Test hundred against the Windies. In fact, Kohli didn’t take his innings lightly. Kohli scored only ten fours in his knock of 139 runs. Thus, the talisman batsman concentrated on picking up the singles. Consequently, Kohli worked hard for his runs.
In fact, Kohli has been in sublime form with the bat. He had scored 593 runs on the England tour and batted at the top of his game in the arduous English conditions. Kohli was able to conquer the English conditions as he showed his class.
Courtney Walsh said while talking to ESPN Cricinfo, “He is a class player, a fantastic player. He is now second to Sir Don Bradman (in terms of fewest innings needed to score 24 Test hundreds). As they say, Form is temporary, however, Class is permanent. He is a very classy player and you will have give him full marks for the way he plays. Plus the other thing I admire about him is his running between the wickets. He doesn’t take anything for granted. And as he says every Test run counts, which a great sign.
Furthermore, Kohli has been breaking all the records in the book. The Indian skipper has an insatiable hunger for the runs. He doesn’t likes to take his foot off the pedal and likes to carry on with his innings.
Therefore, we hardly see him playing a rash shot as he puts a big price on his wicket. Thus, he is also known as the run machine.
Kohli likes to give his 120% whenever he plays for the country. The passion that he brings to the table is unmatched and he likes to give it his all.
Kohli once again cruised to his 24th Test hundred against the Windies as he looked at ease.
