Virat Kohli is undoubtedly one of the greatest batsmen in world cricket. After resigning from captaincy in all three formats in 2022, he is playing for Team India as a batsman. Having a batsman like Virat Kohli in the team gives strength to any team and can scare the opponents.
Virat Kohli’s dominance is such that even during his bad phase in 2020-2021, the opponents never tried to take him lightly. Praise is nothing new for Virat Kohli, who is currently second in the list of international centuries, but recently a Hollywood star praised this batsman.
Hollywood star Jack Black, who has worked in many superhit films like ‘Jumanji’ and ‘Gulliver’s Travels’, said that the right-handed batsman is his “favorite cricket player of all time”. Black even compared Virat Kohli with legendary American basketball player Michael Jordan. Black said in a video- I have to say that Virat Kohli is my all-time favorite cricket player. Compared to other cricket players, he is more expressive and passionate about his game. He is the Michael Jordan of cricket.
This video is becoming quite viral on social media. Virat Kohli is currently in Sri Lanka for Asia Cup 2023. He scored only four runs in the team’s opening match against Pakistan. He did not get a chance to bat against Nepal. The Indian team has started preparations for its second match with Pakistan in the Super Four round of Asia Cup 2023 which will be played in Colombo on Sunday.
India practiced for a long time before the match with arch-rivals Pakistan on Thursday. However, Virat Kohli and captain Rohit Sharma looked relaxed in this optional practice session. KL Rahul, who missed the first India vs Pakistan match in Asia Cup 2023 after suffering an injury, joined the nets session. Keeping in mind the quality bowling of Pakistan, he practiced a lot against left-arm as well as right-arm fast bowlers. He spent a long time in the nets. He may get a chance to play in the match between India and Pakistan to be held on September 10.
Shubman Gill also faced a few balls in the nets against right-arm bowlers. He was mainly concentrating on playing swing balls. India head coach Rahul Dravid bowled to Shardul Thakur to prepare him to bat in the final overs to add depth to the batting order. Dravid was also seen talking to Shardul Thakur about improving his batting during the nets session.
