ormer English cricketer Michael Vaughan has heaped praises on Virat Kohli after the Indian skipper smashed his 39th ODI century in the second ODI between India and Australia at the Adelaide Oval on Tuesday. Vaughan hailed Kohli by calling him as the Greatest of All Time (GOAT) and urged the fans to watch him play when the match was going on. As India won the match by six wickets and levelled the three-match ODI series 1-1, Vaughan said that it was a proper game of cricket and continued to laud Kohli by terming him the GOAT.
‘Just the 9 Tons in his last 19 ODI innings for #Virat … !!!! #’ he wrote.
Kohli played cracking inning of 104 runs off 112 deliveries as India chased down the 299-run target set by the hosts Australia in Adelaide. Interestingly, it was the third consecutive ton by Kohli on January 15 after doing the same against England (ODI) and South Africa (Test) in the year 2017 and 2018 respectively.
The 30-year-old, who started the ODI series by scoring just three runs, answered back his critics in some fashion as tormented the Aussie bowlers by playing some delightful strokes.
