DRAVID BACKS KOHLI

Former Indian captain and one of the greatest batsmen of all times, Rahul Dravid, has praised the young Indian middle order batsman Virat Kohli and said that he has been hugely impressed with the way Virat Kohli played in the second test match against New Zealand at Bengaluru.

Virat’s performance in the Bengaluru test match was absolutely phenomenal. He scored a century in the first innings and took India very close to the score of New Zealand. In the second innings, when India was struggling at 166 for 5 and the Kiwi bowlers were on top, Virat put up a match winning partnership of 96 runs with MS Dhoni and saw his team home. He was declared man of the match for his fantastic performance with the bat.
