SA vs IND, 2018: Michael Hussey rates Virat Kohli over Steve Smith and David Warner
Virat Kohli’s unbeaten 160 has earned him appreciation from some of the greats to have played the game and has certainly seen him apart from the rest of his compatriots. This time it’s Michael Hussey who has come out and praised the Indian skipper.
Kohli is regarded as one of the great modern-day batsmen. The former Australian batsman Hussey said that Kohli is way better than Steven Smith and David Warner as he is more consistent with the bat.
Virat scored his 34th ODI century in the third ODI match at the Newlands in Cape Town. Kohli scored his second hundred in three matches in the ongoing series and his 12th ODI century after becoming the captain of the Indian team.
Kohli scored 112 runs in the first match in Durban and then scored an unbeaten 46 in the second ODI. Kohli’s performance in the limited overs format has been outstanding of late and these two centuries in the ongoing series has stamped his authority over the rest of the batsmen in the world.
Virat Kohli is the only batsmen in the world whose average is above 50 in all formats of the game (Test-53.40, ODI- 57.34, T20I-52.86).
The former Australian batsman Michael Hussey said, “I think he’s doing better than pretty good. He is doing exceptionally well. He’s one of the great players for sure. It’s very difficult to rate who is the best among Kohli, David Warner and Steve Smith. On their day, they are all as good as each other but Kohli is probably is the best. His consistency in all forms of the game is phenomenal.”
