Virat Kohli on Thursday proved once again that why he is fondly and more correctly called as the ‘chase master’ in an ODI Cricket.
In the first match of the six-match ODI series, India rode on Kohli’s calculated century (112 off 119) to chase down the target of 270 with 27 balls to spare. Following his match-winning knock, former cricketers took to Twitter applauding the brilliance of the right-handed batsman. Among all the plaudits, former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar’s message was unique as he likened Kohli to a Cheetah.
Earlier, former England captain Michael Vaughan was also impressed with Kohli’s temperament while chasing a total and addressed him as “The Greatest chaser the game has ever seen.”
