Australian legend Steve Waugh named the best batsman of the present generation. The Fab Four compromising of Steve Smith, Joe Root, Virat Kohli, and Kane Williamson is considered to be the gold dust of batting in international cricket. Waugh picked Virat Kohli as the best batsman and also explained why he rates him so highly.
“I think Virat Kohli has got the best technique. If I told someone to model himself on a particular player I would say Kohli has got a perfect technique,” Waugh told ESPNCricinfo when asked to pick the best batsman of the current generation.
Virat Kohli is world’s no.1 when it comes to ICC’s ODI and Test rankings. Not very long ago, Kohli became the first cricketer to sweep all three ICC awards – Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy for ICC Cricketer of the Year, the ICC Men’s Test Player of the Year and the ICC ODI Player of the Year awards following an astonishing 2018.
