Virat Kohli’s brilliant knock does it again for India. The kind of skills and composure displayed in the innings against Pakistan was one of the best I have seen any batsman do that for his country.
Well there are several websites, news channels and news papers covering everything in terms of grammar and composition and phrases and comparison of Virat Kohli. Mostly they all praise him like the next cricketing God and compare him with Sachin Tendulkar and other great batsmen of last two centuries.
I guess comparing Virat with some other batsmen is the worst possible idea to do so. I have seen many talented young players being compared to other great players and mess up their career even before it could take off. Virat must have hos own identity and not get into the paradigm of getting such comparisons and lose his own focus. Virat has not reached that level of success just because of that comparisons but to his own powerful magnitude of cricketing skills combined with hard work and concentration, not to overlook the confidence that he displays. I have not seen a cricketer in Indian side recently like his ability which he displays.
Just like Sachin Tendulkar should not be compared to Sir Don Bradman, so should Virat never be compared with Sachin.
Each player is good for its time period and for the intensity of the cricket which the specific period of time requires sportsmen to unleash their potential.
Just a short advice to Virat – He should play his natural game and be Virat Kohli himself, not to get carried away with the hype of media and others , but to be humble and let his bat do the talking.
Well played Virat
