3. Virat Kohli (India)

Top 10 extraordinary batsmen in the world

Virat Kohli is a phenomenon that happened to India when we were looking for someone who can carry the team to the next level. Virat Kohli when he bats, puts all his maturity into it and also soaks up all the pressure. Like all great cricketers, he likes to soak up the pressure and performs when he is under tremendous pressure. In chasing big totals, the go to man as far as India is concerned will be Virat Kohli and he has proved that time and again. Virat Kohli always seem to learn and add new things in his batting arsenal each time he goes out to bat. Virat Kohli has a strong bottom hand which gives him the extra power in his shots and help him clear the ropes with ease. But one aspect he will need to take notice of will be his on-field and off-field behaviour. He has been centre of criticism with his attitude problems in the past, but then he answers those critics with his batting performances. He has been given the extra job of captaining the team in test cricket, with the retirement of MS Dhoni. He should not let captaincy fade away the fantastic batsman he is. He has already accomplished much more than any other 26 year old cricketer will. He will be the talisman for India in the years to come and with the right attitude and temperament he should be there among the legends like Sachin Tendulkar and Don Bradman.
