Sydney, January 16: Australia coach Justin Langer has made some sensational comments on Current Indian Skipper Virat Kohli.
Comparing Kohli with master blaster Sachin Tendulkar , He said the Indian captain s balance while shot-making in all formats of the game is unbelievable .
We all knew that, Kohli scored his 39th ODI hundred to help India register a series levelling win here on Tuesday.
Langer was asked if he was having the same impact as Tendulkar. I would like to have them both in my team. Sachin was an incredible cricketer. I used to watch him and it was like he was meditating. He was so calm and that s why his record is peerless, Langer said after Australia s six-wicket loss in the second ODI here.
Virat is doing the same thing. He is so calm and so competitive, and technically his balance is unbelievable. For him to play 360-degree shots in all formats of the game, his balance is unbelievable.
Langer said the young Australian team will learn a great deal playing against class players like Kohli and Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
He (Kohli) is a great competitor and his concentration is extraordinary and for someone to make so many runs as he has, it is incredible like all the great players, he said.
Sachin and Virat, and MS Dhoni, who averages 50-plus in 340 games, they are all-time great players and our guys are in the best seats at the moment, playing some of the best all-time great ODI players and they will be better from the experience, Langer added.
