Shoaib Malik has rightly said “We should give credit to Virat Kohli’s innings” (Afternoon Voice – March 21). Kudos to Team India for achieving “marvellous” victory against Pakistan in the T-20 World Cup match. There are a very few players whose mere presence on the crease instills a lot of confidence, both in the dressing room as well as amongst the supporters in the stand. Kohli has been consistent over the years and his aggressive nature is great for the game. The kind of cricket that he plays in past few years has time and again proved the mantle and has reinstalled the confidence among the supporters and cricket fans. He has earned plaudits from all quarters for his swashbuckling batting and now the fans and the critics are seeing him as the next Sachin Tendulkar. Kohli has always shown his determination, hard work and the thirst and there is no doubt that he can be called as the next Master Blaster.
