Here’s what Gautam Gambhir has to say about Virat Kohli
According to Gautam Gambhir, Indian cricket team caption Virat Kohli plays really well in Test and ODI internationals, apart from that, he has also done well in T20. Till now Virat has scored 2794 runs in 82 matches in T20 Internationals.
Gautam called Kohli a smart cricketer as he’s made his career successful because of his fitness. Virat’s strongest side is his fitness and he uses it well in the game. It should be noted that Gambhir was a part of the winning team of the T20 World Cup 2007 and ODI World Cup 2011.
As per left-handed batsman, Gautam Gambhir, Virat runs very well between the wickets as many batsmen are not able to do it. He added that Rohit Sharma is good but not as good as Virat while rotating strike as he has skills to take big shots but Virat is more consistent than Rohit.
Apart from Rohit, Chris Gayle or AB de Villiers are also weak in rotating the strike in front of spinners but Virat is a master in that game and his average is also above 50.
