Former Pakistan skipper Inzamam-ul-Haq has no qualms that Virat Kohli is among the best batsmen in international cricket right now, but how does he think the Indian captain will fare in the upcoming series against England?
Kohli struggled during India’s last Test series in England as he only scored 134 runs in five Tests at an average of 13.40.
However, Inzamam noted that even if the 29-year-old fails to have an impact this time around, it won’t sully his reputation as an elite batsman.
“There is no doubt in my mind that Virat Kohli is a great player and his performances are proof of this fact,” he was quoted as saying by PakPassion. “Just because he has not been able to score heavily in England does not undermine his stature as an all-time great batsman.
“If he is not able to put in a good performance in one or two innings, then that does not in any way reduce his stature as a player. We know that he works hard and he continues to learn day-by-day and we saw that proof in the manner he played in South Africa where he helped his side lift their game.
“Despite the fact that he may not have a good past record there, England need to be wary that a player of Virat Kohli’s quality can easily help his side win the upcoming series between the two sides.”
