Don’t call him “OverRated”,
Overrated 😡😡 He scored 11000 runs!! No overrated player can do that… You can't judge him with few innings. Moreover why you hate Indians so much???

That's Y he is currently the best batsman of the world.. @daniel86cricket none of the Srilankans are near to win any award

Don’t argue without facts, after all, he is no 1 in ODI and Test,
Yet his test average is 54 and odi is 59. Combine those and they are higher than the whole of Sri Lanka's batting avg combined.

Oops! Are these stats really against the left-arm pacer?
Virat Kohli vs
Wahab Riaz – 131 runs @ 131
Starc – 242 runs @ 83
Trent Boult – 270 runs @ 54
Johnson – 257 runs @ 63
Amir – 56 runs @ 28 (only 3-4 games)
But Virat Kohli struggles against left armers

As the argument accelerated, a collection of multiple thoughts appeared on Daniel’s timeline. However, these bashers don’t miss a chance to mock Akmal brothers in any situation. In doing this, someone mischievously tweeted that “now you would say Umar Akmal is better than him.”
Hahahah now you would say u akmal is better than him right?

Besides fun, it’s a fact that Virat Kohli is a legend who has broken many long-standing records. Over the last five years, he has been the leading run-getter for India in ODI cricket and the greatest match-winner with the willow. He is known as the “King of Cricket” who ruled the top rankings in ODIs and Test with his dedication and passion and continuously improved as well.
With all the weapons in his batting arsenal, he has to be hailed as a complete stroke maker. Be it his stable head position, perfect balance and wristly all-round strokeplay, his batting is undoubtedly superb.
However, there is no doubt in his exceptional cricketing skills, but this is also a fact that everyone has their weaknesses. And if the news is true, then it’s a feast for the bowlers. Particularly, for Pakistanis as they have one of the world’s best left-arm fast bowling attack.
