New Delhi:

Former West Indies captain Vivian Richards, who is called the all-time best batsman in ODI cricket, has praised former Indian captain Virat Kohli (Virat Kohli) who is spewing fire with the bat in theWorld Cup 2023. "I am thoroughly enjoying the ongoing World Cup and I am very impressed with some of the performances so far. Richards has said a lot about the personality of former Indian captain Virat Kohli and many aspects of his batting.

He described this young man as extraordinary.

It has been great to watch the mega tournament as a batsman. And I'm sure fans all over the world couldn't have asked for anything better. Richards said that some pitches have been very good for scoring and during this time there have been very high level performances. Aiden Markram, Glenn Maxway and Quinton de Kock have seen record-breaking centuries with the bat. At the same time, young Ravindra Rachin looks extraordinary.

"There is no one like Virat"

Richards said that all the players in the Indian team look talented, but Virat Kohli is at the top of it. I am a big fan of Virat and have been watching him bat for a long time. Virat has consistently shown with his performance why he is being considered one of the greatest batsmen of all time like Sachin Tendulkar. Before the World Cup 2023, Virat went through a very difficult time and some people were talking about removing him from the team.

'Great to see this look of Virat'

Richards said credit should be given to the staff and everyone who supported the legendary batsman for supporting Kohli. A lot was said about his form, but he is again at the peak of his form. "It's amazing to see a cricketer go through such a bad phase and then playing so well after coming back. There is a saying that merit is permanent and form is temporary and Virat has definitely proved that. I am happy for them. He looks very focused and is a gift to the game. Few players have been like Kohli in terms of mental strength.
