Former Sri Lankan captain Kumara Sangakkara said that in every era of cricket, a great pair is seen. In this modern era, India has the world number 1 as Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. Both of them have performed brilliantly in every format of cricket.
Both Kohli and Rohit have scored 35930 runs in all three formats so far. Sangakkara believes that both of them have the same style as former captains Sourav Ganguly and Rahul Dravid in the 1990s and early 2000s.
A good shot does not require much power
Sangakkara said in Star Sports’ cricket connected show, “The two great players of modern cricket in the Indian team are Kohli and Rohit. He plays traditional shots and has done well in all formats of cricket. Its good results have also come out. It does not require much strength or a lot of effort to make good shots. “
Virat-Rohit has worked hard
Sangakkara, president of Merilbone Cricket Club (MCC), said, “Virat and Rohit’s talent is special.” Due to Corona’s new ICC guidelines, it will probably be easier to score runs in ODIs. But, the fact is that these two have consistently performed well in all formats. I believe both of them have worked hard, so they should be respected a lot. “
Ganguly-Dravid also played traditional shots.
Sangakkara said, “If you look at Rahul Dravid and Saurabh Ganguly, they also play the traditional game. Both played very excellent shots and are also technically strong. Rahul is technically a bit stronger. At the same time, Virat and Rohit are traditional as well as dangerous, which should really be praised. They can beat any bowling attack. “
