Legendary Pakistan batsman and the current national batting coach Zaheer Abbas has predicted that the Indian star batsman Virat Kohli will go on to break all the batting records.
He was quoted as saying by Times of India, “Virat Kohli is one batsman who will break all the records in international cricket. The transition phase in Indian batting has already happened as they now have a set line-up.”
Rating the Pakistan opener Ahmed Shehzad, who is known for his aggressive stroke-play, very highly, he said: “Pakistan also have talented bunch of batsmen. But we are in the process of rebuilding. Ahmed Shehzad is a talented batsman and will mature into a good player in the coming days.”
When asked about his views on the upcoming World Cup T20 match between India and Pakistan, which also happens to be the tournament opener on March 21, he said: “During Asia Cup, Dhoni was not there and now he is back. So that will definitely make India stronger but we did beat a good Indian side. A lot of people thought that the Pakistan are not good chasers but during the Asia Cup, the boys showed what they are capable of. We have had two good run chases (India and Bangladesh).”
