Former Australia captain Ian Chappell has chosen one of the best cricketers from the Indian cricket team, Virat Kohli and Australian cricketer Steve Smith. Chappell was asked in a conversation on Twitter that if you want to choose one of Smith and Kohli? Chappell replied, as captain or as a batsman?
It was said again that you tell me. Chappell replied that I would choose Virat Kohli as both captain and batsman. Although Steve Smith is a good competitor, Chappell chose Kohli, known as the best batsman in the world. He also described Kohli as captain better than Smith.
However, this is not the first time that a former player has compared Smith and Virat. In the past, many legends have made comparisons between these two. However, Virat Kohli has won more than Steve Smith more often, meaning that most people consider Virat stronger than Smith. A few days ago Brian Lara also compared these two.
Lara had said that Steve Smith is definitely a little ahead of Virat Kohli in Test cricket, but when it comes to a better cricketer or player by combining all three formats, Virat seems to be winning. The biggest reason for this is that Virat Kohli is consistent in terms of scoring runs in all three formats.
It was under the captaincy of Virat Kohli that the Indian cricket team won the Test series in Australia after a long gap in Australia. No other Indian captain had done this feat before Virat. Not only this, but Virat Kohli’s record as a batsman is also quite good against Australia.
