There’s also England’s Graham Gooch and Javed Miandad, who I may not have played many matches against, but what they put on their wickets reminded me of Virat Kohli as well. He doesn’t want to leave. So I will definitely put him in the top four or five greatest cricketers I have seen, he added.
Walsh also recalled a conversation when Kohli was the captain of the Indian team. He has a passion for the game, he wants to leave his mark in it. I remember having a conversation with him when I was the West Indies selector and he was the captain. We had a conversation. It was evident that he wanted to be the best.
He was willing to seek advice from anyone who would help him do that. I am not surprised by his accomplishments. He has the passion and drive to be in the top three, top five in everything he does, he added.
Kohli posted an amazing score of 87 points on Thursday. He got off to a straight drive after 20 dot balls and on day two he was just 13 runs short of his first hundred in an overseas Test since December 2018.
Most of his six boundaries came offside, including a perfect cover drive from half-volley from Kemar Roach in the 57th minute.
