New Delhi, JNN Virat Kohli made his mark in every format of the game with his batting and former Australian captain Michael Clarke believes that the Indian captain is the “best all-time batsman to play in one-day international cricket”.
Kohli is the world’s number one batsman in Tests and ODIs. Under his leadership, India made history by winning Test and ODI series in Australia. Earlier, the Indian team had equaled T20 international series. In this way, India has become the first team that did not lose the series in Australia, and Kohli continued to perform well in the meantime.
Australia’s former World Cup winner Captain Clarke said, “I believe that Virat is the best batsman ever to play in ODI cricket. I have no doubt about seeing what he has achieved for India. ‘
Kohli has so far scored 10,385 runs in 219 one-dayers, including 39 centuries. Their average is more than 59.
Kohli’s fan Clark said that there is no answer to the passion of this 30-year-old cricketer. He said, ‘You have to respect the passion of the great to win the victory for your country. Yes there is aggression in it but no one can question his commitment. He is the best in ODIs. ”
Where Kohli is constantly making achievements, the opinion of the cricket world is different about the current form of his predecessor Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
Dhoni now does not play in one-off aggressive style in the first ODI but Clarke feels that the 37-year-old former Indian captain should be left alone to play his game. Clarke said, “Dhoni knows how to play in any situation. He has played more than 300 ODIs, so he knows how to play his role. ”
But if the goal in the third ODI was 330 instead of 230, would Dhoni be impressive? In response to this question, Clarke said, “I think he would bat again differently. The target was 230 runs and their strategy was favorable and if the target was big, then their strategy would have been different.
Clarke was asked what number should Dhoni take in the batting order in the World Cup, he said, ‘four, five or six at any place. He is capable of batting at any number and I think Virat will use it according to his circumstances. ”
Clarke however said that the suspended suspended Pandya will play a key role in the Indian campaign in the World Cup in England. Pandya and KL Rahul are still suspended due to objectionable comments during a TV show.
Former Australia captain said, “A talented player like Hardik is extremely important to balance the team. He can only win matches with his batting and I am sure he will be part of the World Cup team.
