Virat Kohli is one of the most popular players in the current generation. His form with the bat and his attitude on the field has many made experts believe that he is on his way to become as one of the legends in Indian cricket. 

In a recent interview to Pak Passion the legendary pacer said, “He’s a great player, he is confident, he believes in himself. He reminds me a lot of Viv Richards, his belief, on top of skill, with great temperament. He has all of those things.”

He further said, "There are many things you need to become a great batsman. One is that you obviously have to have the skill. Secondly, you have to have good temperament. He has both in abundance."

“He has a lot of skill and he has great temperament. Nothing worries him, even when he was batting in the first 2 Tests against England when his team was struggling at various points, he did not look worried and he looked as if he was in control of the situation,” he added. 

Though India lost the Test series, Virat Kohli has scored 544 runs with the bat and has silenced his critics for his failures back in 2014.  

“A ball would go past the edge of his bat and you would see him smiling because he has that great temperament to handle situations and the pressure and use his skills to produce the goods. He’s a great player, he is confident, he believes in himself,” Holding said.
