‘He’s Proven it Day in, Day out’ Shivnarine Chanderpaul considers Virat Kohli best batsman in the world



'He's Proven it Dai in, Day out' Shivnarine Chanderpaul considers Virat Kohli best batsman in the world

Former West Indies batsman Shivnarine Chanderpaul has said India captain Virat Kohli is the best batsman in the world at the moment and also his favourite.

Recently, the left-hander was in India to play in the Road Safety World Series 2020 but because of the coronavirus outbreak, the veterans’ tournament got postponed.

He has been working on all the aspects of his game, and the results are showing. He is working hard on his fitness; he works on his skills,” Chanderpaul told Sportstar.

“You see him putting in the hard work, and he is one of those guys who always wants to do well. He’s proven it, day in and day out. You have to give credit to him for that. It’s not easy to stay at the top of your game for so long. You got to put in your work, and the results are showing,” he said.

Chanderpaul also hoped that defending champions West Indies would put up an energetic show at the T20 World Cup scheduled in Australia later this year. The Caribbeans have won the T20 World Cup twice, the most by any team so far.

“Well, West Indies have always had players for the shorter format. Yet again, it all depends on how well you perform on that day because, in the T20 format, anybody could win on that day. We always have a lot of match-winners, that’s the good thing about us. With the power hitters, good bowlers — they play a major part in the shorter format. So, we still have one of the best T20 squads around. But we still have to go out and play well to win matches. Don’t take anyone lightly, play as hard as we can, and we will win,” the former cricketer said.
