Virat Kohli my favourite cricketer: Javed Miandad

Written by Sumit Seth

Who is Pakistan legend Javed Miandad’s favourite Indian cricketer? The rivalry between India and Pakistan is known to all but there has always been a mutual respect between cricketers of both the nations.

Miandad revealed that Virat Kohli is his favourite cricketer from the Indian cricket team as he loves how he bats.

“I was asked who is the best in the Indian cricket team, so I choose Virat Kohli,’ Miandad said on his Youtube channel.

“I don’t have to say much, his performance itself tells a lot. People have to admit this as stats are visible.

“Virat performed really well in South Africa; even on an uneven wicket, he scored a hundred. You cannot say he is scared of fast-bowlers or he cannot play on bouncy pitches or he doesn’t play spinners well.”

“He is a clean hitter. Look at his shots, it feels so good to watch him bat. He has class.”

Miandad is the same off the field as he was on the field, straight forward and impactful. One of the most successful batsmen to have come out of Pakistan, Miandad on Wednesday tore into the Pakistan Cricket Board for giving a long rope to ‘non-performing’ players, saying that no player from the current Pakistan side can find a place in teams like Australia, England, South Africa, New Zealand, and India.
