London, Aug 8: Sanjay Manjrekar, the commentator and former India international said that Virat Kohli had carved a special place for himself among the former Indian greats.
Manjrekar was speaking in a debate with David Richardson, the International Cricket Council Chief Executive, Jason Roy, the English batsman, and Mark Nicholas, the former Hampshire cricket and broadcaster, after Richardson delivered the MCC Spirit of Cricket Cowdrey Lecture on Monday.
Asked to rate Kohli as a batsman, Manjrekar said, "even among Indian greats now, he’s finding a special place. It’s amazing. You talk about dirty Varanasi waters, but Indian waters keep producing these kind of phenomenal batting talents, year after year, generation after generation”. (UNI)
