Former Indian skipper and batting superstar Virat Kohli hasn’t lived up to his stature in the ongoing four-Test Border-Gavaskar Trophy against Australia. He has scored only 76 runs in the three innings of the two Tests he played so far in the series; with a poor average of 25.33. Apart from that, the veteran Delhi batter has also completed 25,000 international runs in his career during the recently-concluded Delhi Test against Australia.

Meanwhile, former Indian opener Gautam Gambhir has also come up with his opinion on Virat Kohli’s chances of breaking Sachin Tendulkar’s World record. Subsequently, Gambhir also praised Virat Kohli’s batting technique and his abilities.

What more can you achieve – Gautam Gambhir on Virat Kohli

“I don’t know about the list but the best part of Virat Kohli is that he has performed the same in India and in Australia, in South Africa. There will be an Australian or a South African on the list but you have to compare their numbers in the subcontinent as well. Kohli is a master of the 50-overs format but in Test cricket too he has scored 27 hundred and 28 fifties. He has centuries in England, Australia, South Africa, West Indies. What more can you achieve?” said Gambhir to Star Sports.

“Scoring 25 thousand runs is no joke. He has seen a lot of ups and downs but has remained consistent. Your game goes through a lot of changes. Your stance changes, your technique changes, your strengths, and weaknesses change, your mode of dismissals become different, your emotions change and if you can factor in all of that, control all these things, and score these many runs then you are great,” he added later.

Now, Virat Kohli will be in action during the third of the four-match Test series against Australia at the Holkar Stadium in Indore from Wednesday, the 1st of March. Speaking of his stats in red-ball cricket, Kohli has scored 27 centuries and 28 half-centuries in his Test career of almost 12 years.
