Srinagar: Former India cricketer and coach Ravi Shastri has made huge prediction about star player Virat Kohli for the Cricket World Cup final vs Australia.
Kohli is the top-scorer of the tournament with 711 runs in 10 innings to his name with an astounding 101.57 average. He also scored three centuries and five half-centuries in the process.
“Kohli is writing his own script, the kind of form he is in. Do not be surprised if another hundred is around the corner. He did it in the semifinals and he might as well do it in the final. There is nothing bigger than that,” Shastri said while talking to the Times of India.
Shastri also talked about the Australia opening duo and how crucial they are.
“I think that the first 10 overs are very crucial. India have got some great starts, especially with the way Rohit has exploded at the top. That makes a difference. Similarly with Australia, if they take off, that will give them a lot of confidence. David Warner, Travis Head and Mitchell Marsh are dangerous players,” Shastri added.
He then went on to praise India’s fast bowling attack.
“This is the best fast-bowling attack India have ever had in white-ball cricket. There are three terrific fast bowlers and then there are quality spinners in Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav.
“The skill sets are so good; it lends you a lot of variety. They do not need a pitch (of a certain type) to suit them; they can go anywhere in this world with this attack,” he added.
