India’s Under 19 World Cup-winning captain, Unmukt Chand has said that Virat Kohli is the best batsman across all formats in world cricket presently. Unmukt Chand led India to an Under 19 World Cup win in 2012 in Australia. He smashed a scintillating century in the final of the tournament against the hosts and helped India win the title.
Although Unmukt was regarded as the next big thing in Indian cricket after Virat Kohli, the Delhi-based batsman still awaits an opportunity to make his senior international debut. His career after the Under 19 World Cup has seen a downfall, and he has majorly been a part of only domestic and first-class cricket circuit in the country.
In an exclusive chat with CricketAddictor.com, Unmukt Chand hailed Virat Kohli as the greatest batsman ever in world cricket presently.
Virat Kohli Has Been On Top Of The Charts In The Last Decade
Virat Kohli is arguably the best batsman in world cricket at the moment. He is racking up records for fun, and he is likely to reach the summit in this list in coming times. The flamboyant Indian skipper has already smashed 70 international centuries so far and just seems to get better with days going by.
Kohli is now eighth on the list of the most runs scored by a batsman in international cricket. The Delhi-based star has a very long career ahead and the kind of form that he has been in, it seems a considerable possibility that Virat Kohli will lead this chart too.
Virat Kohli Has A Plethora Of Accolades To His Name
Kohli has grabbed a whole lot of national and international honours during his stint as an international cricketer. He bagged the Arjuna Award in 2013. He was honoured with the Padma Shri, India’s fourth-highest civilian award, in 2017. Apart from it, he has featured in a lot of ICC teams over the years across all formats and won the best cricketer award multiple times.
He has successfully ascended the throne of the Indian captain. Although Team India still hunts for an ICC trophy under him, there are no doubts that Virat Kohli is the most suitable candidate for Indian cricket in contemporary times.
