New Delhi: Blown away by Virat Kohli’s power-packed knock that took India into the World Twenty20 semi-finals, former captain Sunil Gavaskar has said that the marauding right-hander is currently the world’s best batsman and “beyond phenomenal”.
Kohli’s unbeaten 82-run effort was the highlight as India chased down 161 in a tense group encounter against Australia in Mohali to enter the last-four stage. The hosts will take on West Indies on March 31 in Mumbai.
“At the moment he is got to be the best limited-overs batsman in the world. There is no question about it. There is not the slightest doubt about it because he is beyond phenomenal. He is something else,” Gavaskar said.
