Need to buy new Oxford Dictionary to describe Virat Kohli


The cricket legends lauded India skipper Virat Kohli in coincidence after he single-handedly decimated the host Proteas bowling department to help his team register a historical 5-1 series victory. Following his match-winning 35th ODI hundred in just 200 innings, India team head coach Ravi Shastri described the red-hot form of the 29-year-old cricketer in his inimitable style. Running out of words to admire the batting style of Kohli, Shastri said that one should go to a bookstore to buy the latest Oxford dictionary to improve their vocabulary in order to praise the stylish right-handed batsman. "I have a tip for you. If I was in your position I know what I would be doing tomorrow. I would be going to the bookstore and buying the latest Oxford dictionary, just to improve my vocabulary (in praise of Kohli)," Ravi Shastri head coach of team India.

Virat Kohli became the first Indian batsman to score three centuries in a bilateral ODI series and Shastri feels that the sheer impact of his brilliance makes him "world's best batsman" at the moment. "It's not just about averages, it is the way you get runs when you get it, and the impact those runs have on what the team does. I would simply say he is the best batsman in the world now," Shastri remarked.

Virat Kohli along with Joe Root, Kane Williamson and Steven Smith are considered to be the four top batsmen in world cricket but Shastri feels that the Indian skipper is in a league of his own. Virat Kohli finished the series with impressive 558 runs, which included three massive centuries and a fifty. Ravi Shastri credited the batsman's intensity which makes him lethal, especially in run chases.
