Virat Kohli gives his best on the field and his consistency in all formats are praiseworthy. This is what exactly Kagiso Rabada has to say about the Indian skipper. Rabada also shares about his ultimate goal which is yet to be reached amid all kind of success.
Kohli picked by Rabada
The South African pacer Kagiso Rabada is in awe of Virat Kohli. Both shared many on-field face-offs and are famous rivals of the game. What amazes Rabada about Kohli is his consistency and ability to perform well across all formats. Rabada replied when he was asked to name one cricketer he respects the most, “If you look at one-day cricket, I’d say Virat Kohli is the most consistent performer, he is consistent in Test cricket as well.” Rabada thinks that Kohli has pushed him to do the best. He further took names of Ben Stokes, Steve Smith, Kane Willaimson as well in the chat while taking names of the batsmen he respects. “I even like the work of Ben Stokes, Steve Smith, Kane Williamson,” Rabada, said during a chat show.
Rabada dreams of World Cup
The 24-year-old bowler from South Africa so far has taken 197 wickets from 43 Tests and 117 ODI wickets from 75 matches. In 24 T20I he has picked up 30 wickets. He has played 18 IPL games and managed to scalp 31 wickets. No wonder he is considered to be one of the fine bowlers of the current generation and has already achieved a number of success since his Test and ODI debut in 2015.
But Rabada has still one unfulfilled dream. The Proteas cricketer wants to win a World Cup for his country and in the process, he wants to get better. He said, “Well, it was an ambition of mine to be where I am today. So glad to have reached that pinnacle. All I want to do now is focus on a few things that would make me play better, win a World Cup, that’d be amazing.”
