New Delhi: Virat Kohli has started the year 2023 with a bang. Kohli scored a century in his very first match. He played an excellent inning against Sri Lanka in the first ODI played in Guwahati. Earlier, he had scored a century in the ODI series against Bangladesh last year. After Kohli’s century, many critics said that he scores a century on a weak team or on a flat pitch. Former Pakistan captain Salman Butt has given a befitting reply to those who reacted like this on Virat’s century.
Talking on his YouTube channel, Butt said, “Virat scored a century in the Asia Cup. Afghanistan has the better bowling attack. How many batsmen have scored a century against him till date. People often say that Kohli scores a century on a flat pitch or against a weak team. Virat has done this work 73 times. I don’t know why fans say this. Kohli is a genius in cricket.”
Butt further said, “Virat played an excellent inning against Pakistan during the T20 World Cup. It’s never easy to play like this. Especially when you are going through bad form. Such innings take any player to a different level.
