‘Kohli will break all records except the one’, says Steve Waugh
The Indian skipper Virat Kohli has edged passed crucial landmarks in all formats of cricket.
Foreseeing the years to come, former Australia skipper Steve Waugh said Kohli might break all the records of the game’s lodge except the one. The unassailable landmark, according to Waugh is Sir Donald Bradman’s batting average in Test cricket.
“He’s (Virat Kohli) got the passion and hunger, the fitness, the desire, the intensity and he loves playing the game. Unless he gets seriously injured, I think he’ll break all the batting records besides Bradman’s average.”
Sir Don Bradman had an average of 99.94 in Test cricket, he needed four runs to have an average of 100 in his last innings but was unfortunately dismissed for a duck.
With supreme persistent form and fitness, Kohli has recently been surpassed Sachin Tendulkar and became the fastest batsman to score 10,000 one day international runs.
He completed the record in 205 innings while Sachin needed 259 innings.
Currently, he has 62 international centuries beside his name.
Virat Kohli, 29, has the number of age that could carry him in international cricket for another eight to ten years. And with the current form and level of fitness, all the records in the book might become an easy prey for him.
Apart from Kohli, the World Cup-winning skipper of Australia also praised the young sensation of Indian cricket, Prithvi Shaw. The prodigious batsman had a dream start to his International career as he scored 100 on his international debut followed by 237 runs in the series against the Windies.
