Danish Kaneria’s Bold Claim: Virat Kohli Outshines Babar Azam
Former Pakistan cricket player Danish Kaneria recently voiced his opinion on the comparison between India’s batting sensation Virat Kohli and Pakistan’s national team captain Babar Azam. Kaneria’s bold claim came after Virat Kohli’s impressive performance that led India to victory against Australia in the World Cup opener.
The Maestro’s Masterstroke: Virat Kohli’s Heroic Innings
Former Indian captain Virat Kohli showcased his batting prowess with a remarkable innings that secured India’s win, despite initial setbacks. Facing a challenging situation with three quick wickets down, Kaneria lauded Kohli’s performance, referring to him as a ‘maestro.’
Kaneria’s Bold Assertion
Kaneria made a strong statement on his YouTube channel, emphasizing Virat Kohli’s superiority. He stated, “Virat Kohli is a maestro. There is no bigger player than him. People compare Babar Azam to Virat Kohli, but Babar Azam is nowhere near him. The way he guided India to a victory against Australia was not easy.” Kaneria acknowledged that Kohli had some chances but highlighted that dropped catches are a common occurrence in cricket. He concluded by asserting, “Losing and impossible are two words that don’t apply to Virat Kohli.”
Praising India’s Spin Trio
In addition to commending Kohli’s performance, Kaneria also praised the Indian selectors’ decision to include wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav in the playing eleven, preferring him over Yuzvendra Chahal. Kaneria noted that Kuldeep’s current form is outstanding and that India’s spin trio poses a significant challenge for opposing teams due to the variety it offers.
Despite India’s initial struggles, they managed to secure a win against Australia by six wickets. Virat Kohli’s partnership with KL Rahul, producing a remarkable 167-run stand, was instrumental in India’s victory. While Rahul remained unbeaten at 97, Kohli played a brilliant knock of 85 runs before departing, ensuring India’s triumph was within reach.
With a successful start in the tournament, India now prepares to face Afghanistan at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. Cricket experts anticipate another high-scoring match, as the previous game at this venue witnessed over 450 runs in one inning. Two subcontinent teams are set to engage in a fierce battle.
