Pakistan players can become better than Kohli if they are backed: Abdul Razzaq

Former Pakistan all-rounder Abdul Razzaq stated that the batsmen from his country have have the ability to surpass someone like Virat Kohli but the lack of support from the Pakistan Cricket Board means that they are unable to fulfill their potential. Calling it a tragedy, Razzaq added that the Pakistani cricketers are often neglected by the system.abdul razzaq on virat kohli

“I do believe that even in Pakistan we have players who could become better than Virat Kohli, but they are neglected by our system which is a tragedy. In Kohli’s case, he has taken that confidence shown in him by the board and using his talent, repaid them with his performances,” Razaq was quoted as saying by

He also claimed that Kohli is a fantastic player, but that he was lucky to get support from the Board of Control from Cricket in India (BCCI).Virat-Kohli-batting

“He (Virat Kohli) is a fantastic player and there is no doubt about it. However, he is lucky as the BCCI supports him well and instills the confidence in him that any player needs to succeed. The respect he gets from his board is what probably inspires him to do well all the time and the results are there for all to see,” he added.

Kohli is currently one of the finest players in the generation, having stamped his authority across formats. He played a spectacular knock in the first T20I against New Zealand earlier today in Eden Park, helping his team over the line as they chased down more than 200 for a win. The Indian leader’s passion, his dedication and his aim of being the fittest player in his team has inspired the youngsters in Indian cricket, which is a major reason why the Men in Blue have been able to achieve great heights in the last few years.
