Smith backs Virat Kohli to shine in another ICC event

Srinagar: Australia batter Steve Smith and former South Africa skipper Grame Smith have backed Virat Kohli to shine in the T20 World Cup 2024.

In a video shared by the International Cricket Council (ICC) ahead of India’s World Cup opener against Ireland, former Australian skipper Steve Smith picked Kohli as the top run-getter of the tournament.

“My top run-getter for this tournament will be Virat Kohli. He is coming off a terrific IPL and he is bringing in some great form and I think he will be the leading run-getter,” Smith said.

“I am going with a top-order batter. Virat Kohli or Jos Buttler,” Grame Smith said.

Kohli surpassed Sachin Tendulkar’s record for most centuries with his 50th One Day International (ODI) ton in the 2023 World Cup. The top-scorer at the 2023 World Cup, run-machine Kohli holds the record for scoring the most runs in a single edition of the ICC World Cup. Kohli has also scored the most runs in the history of the T20 World Cup.
The 35-year-old has 1141 runs in 27 games of the T20 World Cup. Kohli-starrer India will meet Ireland on Wednesday.
