Kohli scored 149 in the first innings at Edgbaston and is currently batting on 43 in the second innings as India is just 84 away from registering a memorable win at Edgbaston.
Kohli played an innings of great substance which has made former Pakistan great Misbah - ul - Haq take notice. As reported by journalist Saj Sadiq via his official Twitter handle, Misbah feels Kohli is a wonderful player and performs equally well in all three formats. He also complimented how the Indian captain blends his attitude into his batting style, which helps him tackle some adverse conditions with great courage.
“I feel Virat Kohli is a wonderful player and I don’t think there’s anyone who would argue with that. He performs equally well in all three formats of the game and his batting talent is complemented by his attitude and approach to the game which is second to none,” Misbah said.
He also hopes that a lot of records are in danger if the Delhi batsman keeps going this way. “He seems to enjoy his game and is a top batsman at the International level who has already achieved so much but rest assured, he will break some more records in the future too,” former Pakistan captain added.
Kohli again will be the key to India's chances as they seek to get their series off to a winning note.
