There is hardly any argument over Virat Kohli’s status as a modern day great, given his prolific run international cricket across formats. As India braces for another shot at World Cup glory, Kohli’s form at the top of the order will be crucial in determining the Men in Blue’s chances of success.
Recognizing the solid record of Kohli and his impeccable approach to the game, former Pakistan skipper Misbah-ul-Haq feels that the star batsman will be the key. Given Kohli’s highly impressive track record in chasing down huge totals, Misbah said that his ability to soak up pressure during tense situations is essential.
“Virat Kohli will be the key for India. No doubt they have MS Dhoni, Rohit Sharma and have a very good bowling lineup. But I still think Virat will be the key in pressure situations,” he spoke at a recent event.
