Former Pakistan Captain Salman Butt Makes A Massive Comment On Virat Kohli

Indian Cricket Team would be keen to assert their dominance over Australia in the 1st Test match starting from 9th February. The Men in Blue have been on a roll after thrashing Sri Lanka & New Zealand in the white ball leg. The former skipper Virat Kohli has looked in sublime touch and has guided the batters.

Aussies would be aware of the fact that the Indian side is no longer dependent on Virat Kohli. They have got a lot of match-winners present in the team in the form of Cheteshwar Pujara & there are chances that Suryakumar Yadav may be handed a debut in the absence of the injured Shreyas Iyer.

Salman Butt on Virat Kohli

Salman Butt was seen speaking on his YouTube channel and comparing Legendary Kumar Sangakkara with Virat Kohli.

“Virat Kohli’s best is yet to come. He has become fluent but is not back in full flow. He had golden years in which he was unstoppable. When you look at Kumar Sangakkara’s career, the way he played towards the end of it was just amazing. He didn’t play in the same fashion when he was young,” said Salman Butt.

“In modern-day cricket, the excessive amount of international cricket takes a toll on a player. Smart players choose their format and focus on that. Once that happens, they can continue their class. So it’s up to Kohli when it comes to deciding on his future. But I feel his best will come again,” he added.

Steep Road Ahead for Virat Kohli

Virat Kohli doesn’t have a promising record against the Aussies according to his credentials. We all witnessed how Virat Kohli struggled against Bangladesh in the Tests. The former skipper once again would be targeted by Aussie bowlers as his wicket is quite invaluable.

The absence of Starc & Hazlewood for the 1st Test match makes Australia’s bowling a bit weak. Pat Cummins will have to carefully monitor his workload as they can’t afford another injury setback in the high-voltage Test Series. Scott Boland most likely will come in the place of Josh Hazlewood.
