Pakistan leg-spinner Usman Qadir wishes to dismiss the world-class batsman Virat Kohli in international cricket. Virat Kohli is one of the best batsmen to have ever played the sport. The 32-year-old cricketer averages 52.37 after 91 Tests, 59.07 after 254 ODIs, and 52.65 after 90 T20Is. Overall, Virat Kohli has scored 22,818 runs in international cricket. These stunning stats is one of the reasons why Pakistani leg-spinner Usman Qadir desires to dismiss the Virat in international cricket.

In a recent interview with Cricket Pakistan, Usman Qadir, the son of legendary Pakistan spinner Abdul Qadir, claimed that he aspires to dismiss some of the best batsmen in the world. He named Eoin Morgan, AB de Villiers, and a few other legendary batsmen. Usman further added that bowling to such world-class batters would only help him become a better bowler in the future.
