This is what Bangladeshi cricketer Tamim Iqbal feels about Kohli
Virat Kohli is in a league of his own, across all formats of cricket. The 29-year-old Indian skipper has scripted multiple records and his scoring rate is astonishingly high. A champion batsman, Kohli has amassed 61 tons in international cricket, till now. Bangladesh cricketer, Tamim Iqbal is a huge fan of the Indian skipper. Here's what he said about King Kohli.
Bangladesh hero Tamim told Khaleej Times, "I sometimes feel he is not human because the way he performs, my goodness, the moment he comes out to bat, it looks like he is going to score a hundred every game." Tamim has echoed the thoughts of many cricketers. The Indian batsman has a knack of scoring runs aplenty and seldom he fails with the bat.
Tamim wasn't short of words in praising the Indian captain and felt that Kohli is the best across all formats. "The way he looks after himself, the way he works on his game, it's unbelievable. He is probably the number one in all three formats. He is someone to watch and admire and also learn from. I think he has been fantastic."
Tamim has been in the circuit for more than a decade. He has played against some of the biggest names in the game and despite that, Tamim feels Kohli is a different breed. "And I have seen all the great players that have played the game in the past 12 years. But I haven't seen anyone that has dominated as much as Virat has."
In 73 Tests, Kohli has amassed 6,331 runs at an average of 54.57. He has a stunning conversion rate that sees 24 tons and 19 fifties. The ODI stats are even better. In 213 matches, Kohli has 10,076 runs with 37 tons and 48 fifties. He averages a massive 59.62. In 62 T20Is, Kohli has 2,102 runs with 18 half-centuries.
