Virat Kohli’s epic comeback into form has been one of the most heartening stories in modern day cricket.
After not being able to score a century for over 3 years, Virat Kohli took a break and staged a fantastic comeback.
He has now scored 5 centuries since December 2022.
Now, former England captain Paul Collingwood has made a big statement on Virat Kohli. Going by his legendary form, Collingwood has said that Virat Kohli is a “threat to all nations”.
“He is back in form and a threat to all countries now.
He is a class batter who can score run anywhere in any situation,” said Collingwood to news agency ANI.
Virat Kohli recently scored a fabulous century and was just 14 runs shy of a double century.
His knock of 186 runs came in the 4th Test match at Ahmedabad versus Australia.
The innings was of the highest order and exuded elegance and flamboyance from the 34-year-old.
The former English captain also extended his support to Rishabh Pant
Paul Collingwood also lauded the skill-set of Rishabh Pant and labelled him as the “best batsman”.
“He is the best batsman. The way he plays is awesome and he has the ability to turn around the game, but unfortunately, he isn’t part of cricket this time.
I would love to see him back on the field…the world (of) cricket needs him badly,” said Paul Collingwood.
Notably, Rishabh Pant met with a horrific car accident on 30th December 2022 in Roorkee in the Delhi-Dehradun highway.
He is on the road to recovery and frequently shares updates about his recovery.
Paul Collingwood played 197 ODIs, 36 T20Is and 68 Test matches for England.
He was a legendary all-rounder and had one of the sharpest cricketing minds in the England cricket team.
He also led the three Lions to the ICC T20 World Cup title in 2010.
Virat Kohli will now shift his focus to the ODI series versus Australia. The 1st ODI is already underway and it will be taking place at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
Notably, Kohli is an undisputed monarch of ODI cricket and he loves notching up centuries against Australia.
Till date, he has 8 centuries against Australia and is just 1 century short of matching up to Sachin Tendulkar’s record 9 centuries against Australia in the ODI format.
Virat Kohli also has a stupendous average of 57.7 in this format.
