Already, a modern day great, if Virat Kohli continues to pile up runs in similar fashion he might well end up as the greatest of the game. He will be an important wicket for Australia when India tour Down Under but the home side are not ready to mess with him.
Dean Jones had earlier cited the example of Viv Richards and Javed Miandad, saying that when they stepped on the field, we went quiet. Jones, similarly suggested that, no one should upset a ‘bear’ referring to Virat Kohli or MS Dhoni as they don’t like confrontation.
