The Pakistani Batsman Who Once Claimed That “Virat Kohli Is Behind Me” Now Makes These Claims About India’s Most Prominent Batsman

It is clear that Virat Kohli has rediscovered his golden touch, as evidenced by the consistent manner in which he has been scoring in the triple digits in recent games.

In terms of the total amount of tonnes scored at international competitions, he is now just behind Sachin Tendulkar. Kohli, who had not scored a century in more than three years, finally broke his century drought in the Asia Cup last year against Afghanistan. This was his first hundred in Twenty20 Internationals. Kohli ended his century drought.

Since then, the 35-year-old player has been on a tear, scoring three century in his last nine one-day international matches (ODIs). He needs to score three more hundreds in one-day internationals before he can tie Sachin Tendulkar, a former Indian batter who holds the record for the most hundreds scored in ODIs, with 49.

On the other hand, just recently, an experienced Pakistani hitter made the claim that his List A record is superior to that of Kohli.

Khurram Manzoor, who has played for Pakistan in 16 Tests, seven ODIs, and three T20Is, was asked about a claim he had made regarding his List A numbers being greater than Kohli during a recent engagement. Khurram Manzoor has represented Pakistan in all three formats of international cricket.

Manzoor, who has not represented Pakistan since 2016, provided clarification that his purpose was not to compare himself to the former India captain but rather to showcase his exploits in domestic cricket. Manzoor’s last international appearance was in 2016.

“I am not holding myself up to the standard of Virat Kohli. I am currently ranked first in the world for the 50-over format of cricket, regardless of who else is in the top 10. The fact that Kohli scores a century once every six innings puts him ahead of me.

I have set a new world record by reaching the century mark every 5.68 innings. My batting average over the past decade is 53, and I am currently rated fifth in the world in terms of my performance in List A cricket “Manzoor made this statement on the podcast hosted by Nadir Ali.

Following the statement, Manzoor was subjected to trolling, and he has since provided an explanation. “It’s funny how different media sites and individuals have distorted my remarks and taken what I said out of context from the interview I gave.

I have always looked forward to Virat Kohli as the best player available because he is a player of a generational calibre. I brought up this statistic in the context of List A Cricket, where I am currently leading the leaderboard with the best innings per hundred ratio, and where Kohli is currently in second place.

There is no way to compare me to him because he has participated in a greater number of games, the majority of which have been played at an international level “Manzoor expressed his thoughts in a string of tweets.

“Regardless of this statistic, he continues to be the best. I’d like to make a suggestion to all of these different media channels that they exercise some degree of responsibility whenever they post any stories or news. Thank you!”
