New Delhi : Blown away by Virat Kohli’s power-packed knock that took India into the World Twenty20 semifinals, former captain Sunil Gavaskar has said that the marauding right-hander is currently the world’s best batsman and “beyond phenomenal”.
Kohli’s unbeaten 82-run effort was the highlight as India chased down 161 in a tense group encounter against Australia in Mohali to enter the last-four stage. The hosts will take on West Indies on March 31 in Mumbai.
“At the moment he is got to be the best limited-overs batsman in the world. There is no question about it. There is not the slightest doubt about it because he is beyond phenomenal. He is something else,” Gavaskar told in an interview.
“Whatever little hair that I have, my hair was standing at attention watching the young genius. It was just mind-blowing stuff,” he said.
