Sunil Garodia By our team of in-house writers.

People can't stop talking about Virat Kolhi's superlative innings against Pakistan. They gush that it was the best T20 innings they had seen. And now Greg Chappel, the Austrlian great who dislikes Indian cricket in general and Indian cricketers in particular, has termed it as "a song of God". Chappell was so effusive in his praise of Kohli that he called him "the most complete Indian batsman of my time". He added that "only the greatest of champions has the courage and the intelligence to transport their imagination beyond the mortal plane. Kohli has that." People say that coming from Chappell, it is high praise indeed.

People also said that Kohli does not need validation from anyone. They say that the greatness of the player is that even his slog shots are pure cricketing shots, like the two sixes he hit off Haris Rauf (Pakistan's most effective bowler on the day) off the last two balls of the 19th over - one a straight drive over the bowler's head and the next a pull over long leg. They say that once he gets his eye in, Kohli is the most dangerous batter in the world in all formats as he is brilliant at finding gaps and backs it up with some awesome running between the wickets.

People are happy that he is back in form in Australia. They also say that the way he is now approaching his batting reminds them of his halcyon days when he made batting look easy even when other batters struggled. Virat Kohli, say people, is peerless in all formats. They also say that he is now even more a team man than when he was skippering the side. To prove that, they point to how he consulted with Hardik Pandya after every couple of balls during the innings against Pakistan and then applauded Suryakumar Yadav after each of his brilliant shots in his excellent innings against Netherlands.
