Vaughan, 46, said Kohli is a genius who has greatly influenced the youth. He said, ‘When you see shots that are made by his bat without any difficulty or do not feel that there is a lot of effort in applying the stroke, it is flying in the bus stand. He is a special player, he is very talented.
Virat is considered an all-format batsman. However, he has not scored a century in ODIs for more than a year. Vaughan said that there is nothing to be worried about his batting.
He said, ‘I don’t worry about Virat’s batting. He is a great player, he is the best in every format, there is no doubt about that.
