Former Pakistani cricketer Aamir Sohail believes that the Indian captain Virat Kohli and Pakistani batsman Javed Miandad share a lot of similarities between them. In his new YouTube video, Aamir heaped praises on Virat for his exceptional leadership skills. He believes that Virat is one of the greatest players as he influences other players in his team and helps them grow.
Sohail quoted, “The most important point for me is that big players break out. They are individually great, but their greatness does not help the team at all. When you talk about Pakistan’s cricket history and its greatness, the first name that comes to mind is Javed Miandad.”
He added, “His greatness is still talked about to this day because he used to raise the level of play of the rest of the team. When you stitch a long partnership with him, you used to learn so much, and get inspired that you want to improve more. This is what Kohli has done as well. If you look around Kohli, every player has improved alongside him and this is why Kohli gets the tag of a great player,”
Virat Kohli keeps his personal and professional life separate
Aamir further analyzed the career of Virat to explain why he has become one of the greatest of the game. Aamir revealed that the Indian skipper dominates the game of cricket as he tries to adapt to the situation quickly. Also, Kohli knows about his strengths and consistently works on improving his game for the better.
Aamir Sohail said, “Let me explain why Virat Kohli has become a great player? When he burst onto the scene, he was flamboyant, aggressive, and liked to team up with life. Very quickly, he realized that I need to separate my professional life with my personal life. That really benefited him.”
“The guidance he received after that you need to do away with certain things to become a consistent player for India – and he did so. He improved his defensive technique. When he got a chance to play for India in 2008, and then when he made a move to T20I in 2010, and then he made his debut in 2011 – during this time he found his game. He realized what were his strengths, and how he needs to take them forward. Virat also realized what was his weakness, and how can he improve upon it, or camouflage it. He kept improving his game, and he dominated in world cricket.”, the opening batsman concluded.
