Former Pakistan skipper makes a bold prediction on Virat Kohli, compares him with Sangakkara

Virat Kohli

Star Indian batter Virat Kohli who is now back in form after a long while is currently preparing for the upcoming Border-Gavaskar Trophy which is sat to begin from February 9. Depending upon his class, expectations from Kohli has always been high.

Recently, Former Pakistan captain Salman Butt has expressed his views regarding Kohli and believes that India’s ace batter Virat Kohli has not yet reached the pinnacle of his career. Prior to his unbeaten 122 against Afghanistan at the Asia Cup last year, Kohli overcame a protracted century drought in international play.

The former India skipper has now smashed three ODI tonnes and seems to be in incredible form. Butt, who compared Kohli to former Sri Lankan captain Kumar Sangakkara, believes that Kohli’s “best is still to come.”

The best of Virat Kohli is yet to come. He has recovered his fluency (after a lean period), but he has not yet regained his full flow. He had a period of time when he was unstoppable. The manner Kumar Sangakkara played toward the conclusion of his career is simply astounding when you consider his entire playing career. When he was younger, he didn’t play in the same way. So many players have experienced this, according to Butt’s statement on his YouTube channel.

Butt recommended that in order for the top hitter to unleash his best, a few things need to be changed.

“The amount of cricket played today has grown. A player suffers as a result of playing too much international cricket. Players with strategy pick a format and concentrate on it. They may continue in the same class after that. Therefore, Kohli must make the decision on his future on his own. But I think he’ll perform at his best again “he added.

When India plays Australia in a four-match Test series, beginning on February 9 in Nagpur, the attention will once again be on Kohli’s performance.
