New Delhi, May 20: With his breathtaking innings in all formats of the game, India's 'Run Machine' Virat Kohli is making not just his contemporaries but also former players across the world his admirer.
After world cricket hailed his impeccable consistency with the bat in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) season, now great Chaminda Vaas has heaped praised upon the right-handed batsman for his superlative batting show in the cash-rich league.
Vaas, former Sri Lankan bowler, was quoted by Mid-Day as saying, "If I were to bowl to Virat in this form, I am sure he would have hit me for six sixes in an over. He is in a different class. He is commanding the game and dominating the bowlers. Virat wants to be like Sachin (Tendulkar) and one day even get better than him."
The 42-year-old left-handed pacer was widely regarded as one of the best bowlers of his time. He was a key member of the 1996 World Cup winning Sri Lankan squad and dominated world cricket.
The cricket world could not hold itself back from heaping praise over this new run-machine in cricket. The Delhi-lad's passion towards game and hunger to score runs is unparallelled which has forced even the bests to put him in the category of all time greats like Don Bradman, Vivian Richards and Sachin Tendulkar.
