In addition to a century against Bangladesh, he has scored 85, 55*, and 95 against Afghanistan, Australia, and New Zealand, in that order. The 34-year-old’s lone setback was in the match against Pakistan when he was sent out for 16.

Speaking to Sportskeeda, Sreesanth praised Kohli for being selfless against the Kiwis and looking to finish the match with a six despite approaching his hundred.

“Virat means victory. No praise is too high for him. He completely deserved that hundred, but he was selfless. There were so many balls left, but he wanted to hit a six and finish the game. Unfortunately, he couldn’t finish with a hundred, but the way he is batting in this World Cup, he is not looking in any hurry,” Sreesanth said.

“He is the chase master for sure, but the way he is planning in every game, I will call him Professor Virat Kohli. We refer to Suryakumar as mathematician in T20Is because of the way he calculates while batting. Similarly, Kohli should be referred to as Professor Virat Kohli. His leadership quality level is of a different level. He played every ball on merit, giving respect to it when needed. He has played some brilliant shots,” Sreesanth commented.

Sreesanth, who is doing commentary for the 2023 World Cup, was asked how he would bowl to Kohli given his current red-hot form. He cheekily replied:

“In the commentary box, I was asked – if I was bowling to him, what delivery would I bowl. I replied that I would have told the captain, ‘give me the ball after some time’. Watching him bat even as an opposition player… lots of respect to Virat.”
