Recently during India vs England series, England’s fast bowler Anderson questioned Virat Kohli. Anderson had recently said Kohli’s technical deficiencies were not at display during the ongoing Test series between India and England because the pitches in India are devoid of bounce and there is lack of movement.
Inzamam criticized Anderson
On this issue Inzamam said on the Geo Super sports channel that “It is surprising to me that Anderson should question Kohli’s runs and ability because I haven’t seen him taking too many wickets in India,”
He further added “Does Anderson mean to say that if you get runs in England you get some sort of certificate that makes you a quality batsman. Don’t the English and Australian players struggle when they play in the sub-continent? Does that mean they are bad players or weak teams. To me it does not matter where you get runs because in Test matches runs are runs,”
Kapil Dev praised Virat Kohli
When Kapil dev asked on same issue, he praised kohli by this words, “Virat can very well play in all conditions. He is simply playing fabulous cricket. It is great to see an Indian play like this. I have never seen a cricketer like him,” he further added in light tone “Kohli can even score runs with his sunglasses on, considering he is in the form of his life.”
When Kapil was asked if virat kohli can break Sachin Tendulkar’s record? he replied “All I would say is look at Virat’s record. That speaks for itself. The records show that he is the best at the moment,”
