- India’s captain Virat Kohli completed 22 thousand runs in international cricket: VVS Laxman spoke about what makes Kohli special.
𝕁𝕚𝕠𝕋𝕧𝕧𝕚𝕟𝕖𝕖 – Former India batsman VVS Laxman said that he felt that it would be difficult for Virat Kohli to reach such a record. Virat Kohli scored more than 22 thousand runs in all three formats.
He also became the first batsman in the world to score the fastest 12 thousand runs in the third ODI. And he broke the record of Sachin Tendulkar, the former player of the Indian team called the God of Cricket.
Former Indian cricketer VVS Laxman told former India batsman Gautam Gambhir in the Star Sports show Cricket Connect that the feat done by India captain Virat Kohli is unprecedented.
To me, the way Kohli plays cricket in every series. And he maintains his rhythm is an incredible one. At one time I thought it would be very challenging for Virat Kohli.
And at any stage, the emitting energy will be reduced. But never once did he feel that his energy has reduced while being in the field of Captain Kohli.
VVS Laxman said, if you see Virat Kohli’s record in ODIs, then he has scored many centuries while chasing the target. They have a lot of pressure chasing the target.
But there are players who play cricket with their responsibility under pressure. And this is what makes them very special and magnificent.

The same former veteran cricketer Gautam Gambhir agreed with VVS Laxman saying, if you can do whatever you want. But the best feeling in the whole world is that you scored the last run of the match.
It gives you satisfaction that you have done something for your country. And it is this combination that makes them special.
Virat Kohli has scored more than 22000 runs in his international career, which is a very special achievement in itself.
